The baseball referendum Taxpayers Committee for Yes on Baseball, is approved by voters in Los Angeles, California, USA. The vote enables The Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team to acquire 352 acres (1.42 kmĀ²) of the impoverished Mexican-American community of Chavez Ravine from the City of Los Angeles. This marks the beginning of the destruction of Chavez Ravine to enable the building of what will become Dodger Stadium, the home of the LA Dodgers, after they re-locate from Brooklyn. Ry Cooder's 2005 album Chavez Ravine is inspired by this disgraceful episode in American sporting and social history.
