Wait! Sady Koufax was a real dude? I thought he was a plot point in "Needful Things".

Yeah, well, Joe Pepitone or not, I own the inside of that plate!

Jesus, how shiatty do you think Ethier feels about that?

Wow, to be known as the Dodger that killed Sandy Koufax. Stained underwear time.

Among other things, that's the guy on the cover of the leaflet, "Famous  Jewish Sports Legends".

That's the only thing Ethier could ever hit off Koufax.

In typical Dodgers fashion, look at those empty bleachers.  Was traffic really that bad in 1964 that you had to miss a no hitter?

Says the guy whose team has cracked 3 million only once in its history.  How many D-Back games did you go to last season?

/Cos, at 2.135 million, I'm thinking they could have used you.

Yeah, they should really advertise when a no hitter is going to happen before hand.

The Dodgers fan base is infamous for showing up late and leaving games early.  Most notably during the 1988 World Series where Gibson hit his walkoff HR and you could see the mass of car lights in the parking lot.  

Honestly, that's a fantastic photo, but the lack of fans did strike me.  They couldn't even stick around for that?

That game was actually in 1962.

Lotsa people leave early because it usually takes about an hour to leave the ballpark if they don't. I always stay in my seat after games until staff members tell me to leave, then kill time in the bathroom before going to my car.

Since it was against the 40-120 Mets in 1962, the right field pavilion was likely not even opened up. That was the last section to open if attendance required it and the left field pavilion was near full. So this wasn't a case of fans leaving early so much as no fans out there in the first place.

Yes, but what is his opinion on Flanders' coaching skills?
