A crowd of more than 5,000 filled Modesto's Del Webb Field on October 14, 1962 as the San Francisco Giants and New York Yankees spent 90 minutes each practicing between the rain-delayed 6th and 7th games of the World Series. The once-in-a-lifetime event featured eight future Hall of Famers: Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford and Mickey Mantle from the Yankees; Orlando Cepeda, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry from the Giants.
