February 2, 1964
The hilarious and outrageous antics of the beloved Harlem Globetrotters come to Dodger Stadium, as a basketball court is placed on the infield between home and third base. A crowd of 12,405 laugh themselves silly as the world-famous Globetrotters defeat the Atlantic City Seagulls, 46-35. As a bonus, the 1963 World Champion Dodgers play an exhibition basketball game against the World Champion Chicago Bears. It is the only basketball game ever played at Dodger Stadium. Tickets were priced at $4 for Field Box and $3 for Reserved Level. In a contract with the Dodgers signed by Globetrotters owner Abe Saperstein, a “rain date” of February 9 was available.
