In '73, I attended a Dodgers-Braves doubleheader at Fulton County

We were just a few rows above the third-base dugout. It was a sparse crowd, and drunk guy a few rows behind us spent much of the evening yelling insults at Tommy Lasorda in the third-base coaching box. I was only 7 and was not a Dodgers fan, but after that night I could tell you Tommy Lasorda was the third-base coach for the Dodgers.

Phil Niekro was the starting pitcher and got the win in the first game. Bill Buckner played in the OF for the Dodgers. So many guys gone and I guess that's not surprising 47 years later (Lasorda, Niekro, Buckner, Paul Casanova, Willie Crawford, Danny Frisella - died a few years later in a dune buggy accident).
