The Dodgers will host the Boston Red Sox in an exhibition game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the team’s original home, commemorating the Blue Crew’s 50th year in Los Angeles. The Dodgers played in the Coliseum from 1958 to 1961 while Dodger Stadium was being built.

Two of the stadium’s most attended events were Dodgers’ games – 93,103 on May 7, 1959, and 92,762 in game five of the 1959 World Series versus the Chicago White Sox.

The Dodgers’ tenure at the Coliseum was known for its “Moon Shots” – home runs hit over the left field fence, which was only 250-feet from home plate. It was named after Dodger outfielder Wally Moon, who consistently hit lazy fly balls over the short fence in left field.
