Trivia
Hall of Fame umpire Doug Harvey and five-time All-Star Cookie Rojas both made their MLB debuts in Dodger Stadium's first game. Los Angeles Angels pitcher Bo Belinski threw the first no-hitter at Dodger Stadium on May 5, 1962 against the Baltimore Orioles. The next day Orioles third baseman Brooks Robinson hit the first grand slam at Dodger Stadium in a game against the Angels, who called Dodger Stadium home from 1962-1965.
