Amazing Ebbets Steal by Bill Purdom
Amazing Ebbets Steal
From the day he broke baseball’s color barrier in 1947, Jackie Robinson injected the Dodgers with a special spirit that helped make his 10 years with the club the most exciting in the 68-year history of the Brooklyn franchise. He ran the bases with a kind of controlled recklessness that drove opponents crazy. Here, it’s August 29, 1955, and Jackie’s seen avoiding the tag of Cardinals catcher Bill Sarni to score on the front end of a triple steal at Ebbets Field. It is Robinson’s 18th career steal of home plate. Gil Hodges (from second to third) and Sandy Amoros (first to second) moved up behind Robinson, and the Dodgers went on to score three runs in the inning to break open a 2-1 game. Also visible in the scene are Dodger batter Johnny Podres, Hall of Fame umpire Jocko Conlan, Cardinal pitcher Al Gettel and left fielder Rip Repulski. The Dodgers, of course, went on to win the 1955 World Series, a seven-game affair with the Yankees. It was the Brooklyn Dodgers’ only World Championship.

Amazing Ebbets Catch by Bill Purdom

Amazing Ebbets Catch It’s September 30, 1956, the final game of the season. The Dodgers lead the second-place Braves by just one game and need a victory here or a Milwaukee loss in St. Louis to clinch the National League pennant. As it turns out, the Braves will defeat the Cardinals 4-2, so Carl Furillo’s spectacular seventh-inning catch of a drive off the bat of Pirate Dick Groat proves quite important. Even though the Dodgers led 7-2 at the time, Brooklyn had to fend off a Pittsburgh rally before eventually winning 8-6. Furillo’s defensive heroics were nothing new to Dodger fans. From the late '40s through 1957, he expertly patrolled what was acknowledged to be the most difficult outfield position in baseball. The menacing right field wall was 38 feet tall, 19 feet of concrete topped by 19 feet of screen. To make matters worse, the bottom half of the concrete portion angled in toward the warning track. In addition, the sizable right field scoreboard jutted out five feet from the wall at a 45 degree angle. Furillo and Brooklyn center fielder Duke Snider were experts at protecting Brooklyn clothier Abe Stark, whose sign under the scoreboard promised: “Hit Sign Win Suit.” Lithograph print measures 21 5/8" x 29 5/8"
