On Friday, I ran a page of the Yankees-USC game program from 1951.
Here is an ad that ran in the four-page program:
Remember the Angels played at Wrigley Field, which was about two miles from USC on 42nd Place.
The Hollywood Stars played at Gilmore Field, which was near Farmers Market and is where the current CBS Television City is located.
Popular sportscaster Sam Balter was a UCLA basketball All-American but I recounted here his 1954 radio broadcast praising the USC band and basketball program.
The Angels and Stars were bitter rivals too.
Here is a Life magazine three-page spread on a 1953 fight between the teams that brought 55 police officers to the stadium.
The altercation started when the Stars’ Ted Beard, slid spikes first into Angels’ third baseman Murray Franklin.
