What a majestic day this must have been. Full of pomp and circumstance, the Dodgers paraded through downtown Los Angeles, from City Hall to the Coliseum, towards their first official home game of the 1958 Baseball season. It was Friday, April 18th as the Dodgers would face off against their rivals- the San Francisco Giants. Walter Alston and Chuck Dressen are seen here in the lead car with the rest of the ballclub not far behind.
This is a great AP press photo, not only because of the parade in process, but because it shows a LA trolley car in the background. How apt is it that the Dodgers have to dodge those cars on the way to the game that afternoon?
