One of the all time great sports photos.  OF ALL TIME

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

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?

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.
