Did you know that Danny McDevitt pitched the last baseball game every played in Ebbets Field by the Brooklyn Dodgers ? It was September 24, 1957 , the attendance was only 6,702, McDevitt was describing the scene to author Bob McGee who covered it in his book The greatest ballpark ever: Ebbets Field and the Story of the Brooklyn Dodgers (Rutgers University Press, 06/22/2005, Page 8):

"I didn't know it would be the last game. My only concern was just trying to win it.

"So this was a big game for me. And I really don't remember what the crowd was like that night. When I was doing my best pitching, I was in a trance. I'd just lock in with my catcher; my concentration was such that there wasn't anything else in the world. I didn't hear the fans, didn't hear the players. I blocked everything out when I was doing well. I knew right where every pitch was going. Zip. Zip. Zip"

After Elmo Valo's double drove in the first run for Brooklyn in the first inning, organist Gladys Gooding played "Am I Blue" and "After You're Gone." When Hodges singled in Gino Cimoli in the third, the last run that would be scored, she played "Don't Ask Me Why I'm Leaving." As the game progressed, she played other standards between innings, including "Que Sera Sera," "How Can You Say We're Through," "When I Grow Too Old To Dream," and Bing Crosby's them song, "When the Blue of the Night Meets the Gold of the Day." At the game's conclusion, after McDevitt's five-hit shutout, Godding started to play "May the Good Lord Bless You and Keep You," but was lamely interrupted when someone put on the familiar "Follow the Dodgers" recording over the loudspeaker. After it stopped, Godding concluded with "Auld Lang Syne."
