In 1984, KTTV Channel 11 took this look at the history of the Dodgers-Giants rivalry. Among the incidents that don’t get as much attention these days are the 1971 brawl that had echoes of the famous Juan Marichal-Johnny Roseboro calamity, with Mays and Marichal once again pivotal figures, and a 1978 outfield collision at Candlestick Park that triggered a bizarre finish.
For what it’s worth, the next batter after that 1971 brawl, Willie Davis, hit a two-run home run.
Here’s a more recent picture of Elaine Perkins, who introduces the video above.
