A Foggy Night for the Dodgers

July 16, 1960, Dodgers

July 16, 1960: The Dodgers weathered a rough night in San Francisco and beat the Giants, 5-3.

Home plate umpire Frank Dascoli stopped the game in the second when a bank of fog moved in and he apparently couldn't see the outfielders. In the first inning, the Dodgers' Charlie Neal had a gift double when the Giants couldn't find his hit. And the Dodgers returned the favor in the second when Willie McCovey's fly ball fell for a triple.

Young Dodger slugger Frank Howard continued to impress with a home run into the seats beyond center field.
