Fifty-seven years ago, the Dodgers faced the Phillies in Jersey City, New Jersey, marking the first major league game ever played in the Garden State. The Dodgers won 5-4 after 10 innings at Roosevelt Stadium in front of a sparse crowd of 12,214. The game was also notable as Brooklyn backstop Roy Campanella tied the score in the tenth inning with his 1000th career hit, a double down the left field line.
