The Dodgers won last year’s Hello Kitty Bobblehead giveaway 8-3 over the Mets. It was not a pretty game. The Dodgers lost a Hello Kitty Blanket giveaway 7-2 to the Padres back on April 17. That wasn’t very exciting either. And back on September 18, 2011, the Dodgers gave away a small Hello Kitty doll. They beat the Pirates that day 15-1.
Also 48 years ago today, Sandy Koufax was interviewed on the postgame show by Maury Wills.
