Special to The TimesThe crowds that welcomed the Dodgers to Los Angeles and continued to respond to their historic presence were enormous -- 78,652 for the first game in 1958, 93,103 for a 1959 exhibition with the New York Yankees saluting Roy Campanella, and more than 92,...
Sun ReporterIt was a sensation I'd experienced while touring plantations in South Carolina and walking the Forum in Rome, that feeling that because I was standing in a certain place, I was linked intimately with the span of human history. I stared at the bronzed...
