Today we examine the year 1958 and what it was like in Baltimore and New York around the historic Dec. 28, 1958, game between the Colts and Giants. As the 50th anniversary approaches, we'll look at the game through the eyes of those who played in it and those who watched it at Yankee Stadium.
In addition to The Baltimore Sun's coverage the next week, there will be events in Baltimore commemorating the game:
The Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards is opening an exhibit honoring Baltimore's first football champions, the 1958 Baltimore Colts, and celebrating the 50th anniversary of "The Greatest Game Ever Played." The exhibit will run through June 30.
