Top Sports Rivalries of All Time
Los Angeles Brooklyn Dodgers vs New York San Francisco Giants
A rivalry spawned in New York transferred to the West Coast in 1958. It reached its most famous moment in 1951, when Bobby Thomson s home run beat the Dodgers to win the pennant. When the clubs fought for National League pennants in the 60s, they were also constantly fighting on the field, including the infamous episode when Juan Marichal attacked Johnny Roseboro with a bat. Giants fans loved it when Joe Morgan s homer knocked the Dodgers out on the final day in 1982 Dodgers fans loved it when their team knocked out the Giants in 1993. In terms of greatest head-to-head matchups, the East Coast edition of the Dodgers-Giants has the edge, slightly, over its West Coast counterpart.
