In 1957, Brooklyn Dodgers1 fans were devastated2 when they learned their team was moving to Los Angeles. Fifty years ago this week, the team played its last game at Ebbets Field. Harvey Sherman was in the stands.

Time now for StoryCorps, the project that is collecting America's stories. Today, something out of baseball history. Brooklyn Dodgers fans were devastated when they learned their team was moving out here to Los Angeles. It was the 1957 season and attendance at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field plummeted3.

Their final home game was played 50 years ago this week, fewer than 7,000 fans turned out. But Harvey Sherman was there. He recently came to StoryCorps to remember how he said goodbye to his favorite team.

The first two weeks of September, the Dodgers were on the road and they were scheduled to come back to Brooklyn for a makeup4 game with the Pirates. And that was gonna be their last game at Ebbets Field. It was my birthday, I was 21 and I was gonna go to the game. I've asked a few people to go and, they asked me: what are you? crazy? You're going to be the only one there. Who gives who, you know, the heck with them. They are leaving us . The heck with them. We're not interested. So I went to the game by myself. The lights were on, the grass was as beautiful as it was the first day of the season, the players were on the field, but there was no one in the stands. The place was vacant. It was eerie5. I could have sat any place in the ballpark I wanted.

During the game, Gladys Goodding who was the organist, everything she played was a blue song about losing a lover. Hahaha, and after the game, I remember leaving and she was playing 'Auld6 Lang Syne7' and then they cut her off in the middle and they put the Dodgers theme song on.

When I walked out of the Ebbets Field, I stood a block away and just looked back. The lights were still on and I said You know, goodbye, it's over. I never thought the Dodgers would leave, it was like a divorce. You felt like a child in a divorce that you had no control over what was happening. And I couldn’t make any clear than that. There was a period of time I wouldn’t even go to a ball game. And I had no recollection of what happened in 58, 59, 60, 70, 80, no, no recollection of whatsoever8. And I’m sure wonderful things happened. But I have I just completely have blocked it out of my mind and to this day, I, I miss it terribly, I miss it terribly.
