1939 In front of 2,457 fans at Braves Field, the Dodgers, with Whit Wyatt pitching the first 16 frames, play 23 innings against Boston in a game that ends in a 2-2 tie when plate umpire Babe Pinelli called the five-hour and 15-minute contest at 8:15 pm due to darkness. The same teams at the same field played 26 innings to a 1-1 tie in 1920.
1940 To honor the lyricist of Take Me Out to the Ballgame, the Dodgers celebrate Jack Norworth Day at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field. The songwriter and his partner Albert Von Tilzer, who wrote the music, had never seen a game when they created the song in 1908.
1980 Dodger southpaw Jerry Reuss, facing only 28 batters, no-hits the Giants at Candlestick Park, 8-0. Shortstop Bill Russell's errant throw on Jack Clark's grounder with two outs in the first inning deprives the 31-year-old left-hander of tossing a perfect game.
2010 The Dodgers seek bankruptcy protection in a Delaware court, citing MLB's refusal to sign off on a transaction that would provide the team with $385 million. Although there will be no disruptions for the team, the filing of Chapter 11 permits the Dodgers to use $150 million for daily operations, giving owner Frank McCourt time to find a media deal to ensure the club's long-term financial stability.
