on September 19, 1950, Duke Snider gets a cake and a kiss on his 24th birthday at Ebbets Field. Said Carl Furillo, “It seemed the whole team belonged to Brooklyn.”

The Dodgers play a double header vs Pittsburgh and Snider hits 2 homeruns in the first game a 14-3 victory, off Vern Law and goes 0-4 in the night cap, the Dodgers still prevail 3-2.

Snider will have his most successful season leading the league with 199 hits, 31 homeruns and driving in 107 runs. He will finish 9th in MVP voting.
