  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1947 the infamous photo between Phillies manager Ben Chapman and Jackie Robinson is taken before the start of that afternoons game in Philadelphia. As you know, Chapman spearheaded a vicious verbal assault on Robinson during their previous series in Brooklyn. In 1983 Ron Cey returned to Dodger Stadium for the first time since being traded to the Chicago during the offseason. Cey went 3-for-4 with three singles and a run scored but his Cubs lost, 4-3.
