>Wilpon's Dodgers Get Own Stadium (in 1962)

>Variety republished an account of the first game at Dodger Stadium. Followers of the Mets Police know that Fred Wilpon thinks that he owns the Brooklyn Dodgers and totally ignores a certain other franchise that won 10 pennants before moving to San Francisco, and also had a familiar looking NY logo.

The Bums put on their top hat, white tie and tails yesterday and said farewell to Flatbush forever. There was a little bit of Brooklyn left though in the way they dropped the opener to the Cincinnati Reds 6-3 at the luscious looking, $18 mil Chavez Ravine stadium.
