The 1950s are often considered the “golden age of baseball,” a time when the sport was America’s unrivaled national pastime. Attendance at baseball games soared after World War II, and it was during this time that many teams began televising games.
 
The New York Yankees dominated baseball in the 1950s. The team played in eight of the decade’s ten World Series games, and won six. Of the eight World Series appearances, the Yankees faced their rivals, the Brooklyn Dodgers, four times. The Dodgers beat the Yankees just one of those four times.
 
The Dodgers and Yankees played each other in the 1955 World Series. The first two games of the Series were won by the Yankees. At that time, no team in baseball history had ever lost the first two games and gone on to win the seven-game championship. Dodgers fans all over America were saying “Wait until next year.”
 
With help from pitcher Johnny Podres and home-run hitters Roy Campanella, Gil Hodges, and Duke Snider, Brooklyn came back to win the next two games. A pair of homers by Snider put Brooklyn ahead. The Yankees took the sixth game, tying it up at three games apiece. The Brooklyn Dodgers won the last game, earning the team its first world championship.
