This Day in LA History: March 29, 2009 Dodgers play at the Los Angeles Coliseum

On this day, commemorating its 50th year in Los Angeles, the Dodgers played one game in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Dodgers had  played in the Coliseum for a few seasons when they moved in to LA. This exhibition game had a crowd of 115, 300 the largest baseball attendance in baseball history in any country or league.

This game saw the Dodgers lose to the Boston Red Sox by a score of 7-4. Due to renovations and stadium dimensions, the Coliseum's left field corner was shortened to only 190 feet.
