1982 computers at Dodgers stadium

1982 computers at Dodgers stadium

Aug. 5, 1982: Sports writers with early computers cover a Dodgers game from the press box. The Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 in ten innings.

Staff photographer Rick Meyer took this image for a feature story on baseball writers. But the story made no mention of these early computers.

I’m sharing the photo, but asking for your help. Do you know the make of these computers?

    Computers take numerous physical forms. Early electronic computers were the size of a large room, consuming as much power as several hundred modern personal computers. Today, computers can be made small enough to fit into a wrist watch and be powered from a watch battery. Society has come to recognize personal computers and their portable equivalent, the laptop computer, as icons of the information age; they are what most people think of as "a computer".
