Dodger Fans, Baseball History happens every day. Whether it played a major impact on a championship run or was the story of the day, history has happened. Here are two events that took place today in Dodgers History.
April 21st 1948: The Legendary Dodgers Manager Leo Durocher returns to the helm after a one year suspension. It would be a short return though as after starting the year 35-37, Durocher would be fired. The Dodgers would rebound and finish the season 84-70. (A third place finish)
April 21st 1967: For the first time in the history of LA Dodgers, there was a rainout at their home ballpark. This would end a streak of 737 games played without a canceled game due to rain. The rare rainout was one of the many unfortunate results of the 1967 season. The Dodgers would finish 73-89 and in 8th place that season.
