Baseball at the 1984 Summer Olympics was a demonstration sport. Although single exhibition games had been played in conjunction with five previous Olympics, it was the first time that the sport was officially included in the program, and also the first time that the sport was played in Olympics held in the United States. Eight teams competed in Los Angeles, California, in the tournament and games were held at Dodger Stadium.
Seen on the front of this nice card is the stadium, downtown Los Angeles, and the baseball adaptation of Sam the Olympic Eagles (the official mascot of the ’84 Summer Olympics).
One of the world’s finest and most beautiful stadiums, Dodger Stadium, is the scene of this demonstration sport. There is seating for 56,000 and parking for 16,000 automobiles on 21 terraced lots surrounding the stadium.
