Dodgers win final game at Ebbets Field
Within weeks of that Tuesday victory, the Dodgers had moved to Los Angeles and the New York Giants had moved to San Francisco, reducing New York's Major League tenants from three teams to one.
And though Ebbets Field is gone, its story remains at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, where the ballpark's cornerstone stands as a fan favorite along the timeline of baseball history.
