DODGERS’ FINAL AT EBBETS

The last game the Dodgers played at home was on September 24, 1957, and fewer than 7,000 people came out to watch Brooklyn beat the Pirates 3-0… …The game ended with Ebbets Field organist Gladys Gooding playing “May the Good Lord Bless and Keep You” and then the loudspeakers rang with a recording of the Dodgers theme song:

“Oh, follow the Dodgers/Follow the Dodgers around/The infield, the outfield/The catcher and that fellow on the mound. There’s a ball club in Brooklyn/The team they call “Dem Bums”/But keep your eyes right on them/And watch for hits and runs.” {read more} Brooklyn Daily Eagle
