MLB Network is trying to determine the 20 greatest games of the last 50 years, and to determine the top 20 games the network came up with a list of 50 games, and will whittle them down to 20. They have a "blue ribbon panel" that will determine the final 20, but fan votes will be considered as well. You can vote for your favorite games here, between now and January 1.
There are seven Dodger games among the 50 nominees, four with a favorable outcome, three with a bad outcome:
- Game 4 of the 1963 World Series: Sandy Koufax vs. Whitey Ford
- September 9, 1965: Sandy Koufax's perfect game
- Game 6 of the 1977 World Series: Reggie Jackson hits three homers
October 3, 1982: Joe Morgan's home run knocks the Dodgers out of the playoffs
Game 5 of the 1985 NLCS: Ozzie Smith takes Tom Niedenfuer deep
Game 4 of the 1988 NLCS: Mike Scioscia takes Gooden deep, Kirk Gibson's homer wins it, Orel Hershiser saves it
- Game 1 of the 1988 World Series: Mike Davis steals second, scores tying run off Dennis Eckersley
Sadly, the 4+1 Game didn't make the list, but that's a pretty good group of games to choose from. The top 20 games will be revealed on MLB Network starting on January 3.
