More than 60 years ago, the Grape Bowl was the site of perhaps the biggest football game ever to be played in Lodi.

A crowd of 24,218 jammed into the stadium on Feb. 12, 1950 to watch two of the West’s best college quarterbacks face off to determine once and for all who was the best. It was the most highly publicized sports showdown in the city’s history and brought great attention to the small city of Lodi, which didn’t have a college team but had the biggest first-class stadium in the area.
