A year before the first subway line was completed, the Brooklyn Superbas, later to be known as the Dodgers, played their cross-town rivals in a two-stadium, same-day doubleheader. The first game played in Washington Park began at 10:30 am with 9,300 fans watching the visiting Giants win the opener, 6-4, and later that afternoon in front of 23,623 patrons at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan, Brooklyn won the second game, 3-0.
