    They started the season a lot later back then. Of course, they played fewer games too.

    On a side note, on this day in 1958 the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers made their debut in California. They played each other and the Giants won 8-0. Lefty Gomez pitched the shutout. The game was in San Francisco and the attendance, quite surprisingly, was only 23,448. I wonder if the Giants owner,Horace Stoneham, was second guessing himself for the move after seeing that.

    I would have loved to have seen Dave Kingman pitch.
    Geronimo also went 5 for 5 in game one.

    He started as a pitcher at USC, he also made another outing as a pitcher for SF in 73' but didnt fare to well either.
