“Pasadena” Dodgers

December 17, 1957 – The Pasadena City Board meets with the Dodgers about the possible use of the Rose Bowl as a temporary home after leaving Brooklyn. The Dodgers first approached the Los Angeles Coliseum about playing in the football and track stadium, but couldn’t make a deal. When the Dodgers broached the idea of Pasadena, N.L. President Warren Giles tells the Dodgers they moved to the Los Angeles territory, not Pasadena. Eventually, the Dodgers reach an agreement with the Coliseum Commission and play there from 1958-61 during the construction of Dodger Stadium.

Interesting history. I don’t think I have ever been to the Rose Bowl. I have only been to the Flea market there or to walk/job.
