The Brooklyn Dodgers won the game 3-2 at home before a crowd of 39,308. They won the World Series 4 games to 1 over the Chicago Cubs. It was their first world championship in history and they remain the only team to have never relocated. From 1891 to 1957, the team was known as either the Brooklyn Atlantics or Brooklyn Baseballs. In 1958, after moving to Los Angeles, they were renamed the Los Angeles Dodgers.
In 1956, the Dodgers finished second in the National League with a record of 88-74. They were seven games behind the St. Louis Cardinals. In the playoffs, they defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in three games.
During this season, the Dodgers played 21 games against top-of-the-league-season Yankees. The teams were tied 1-1 after four games had been played between them. But then the Yankees went on a 23-game winning streak from which they could not be dethroned until May 28th when the White Sox ended it at 24-games-in-a-row.

The New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers were two of the most popular teams in baseball during their time. With the exception of 1952 when Jackie Robinson broke through as a star player with the Dodgers, there was never any doubt who the best team was throughout most of their histories. From different cities within 20 miles of each other, these two teams dominated baseball for several decades straight.
In 1881, William Hulbert founded the National League (NL) with the intention of creating a new league that would compete with America's National Association (NA). After one season, the NA folded and joined forces with the NL to form what is now known as "Baseball's First Dynasty". In 1898, Charles Ebbets bought the bankrupt club and changed its name to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Ebbets was a famous baseball owner who had played second base for the Brooklyn Eckfords back in the NA days.
The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees (4-0) in five games to win the first World Series in history. The first game was played at Brooklyn's White Sox Park on October 5, 1:00 PM. The last game ended at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn after 12 innings of play.
During Game 1 of the series, a record crowd of 56,062 people attended the game at League Park. It is estimated that this number rose to over 60,000 people when you include fans watching the game on radio and television. This makes it the largest audience ever assembled for a baseball game up to that time. In fact, it remains the largest audience ever assembled for any sports event in the state of New York.
The Dodgers took advantage of three Yankee errors and two walks by Joe DiMaggio to take a 2-0 lead. They added another unearned run in the fourth when Ralph Houk misplayed a ground ball; this led to a double by Pete Reiser who would eventually score on a passed ball. The Yankees tried to come back in the fifth but they could not get anything going and fell 3-2-1.
