Wow...

This is the best I could do.

The last game at Ebbets was a 2-0 win over the Pirates on Sept. 24, 1957.

The first link has the roster, but I couldn't find a lineup for that particular game. Sorry.

Not exactly what you are looking for but here is the 1957 lineup:

Q: What was the starting lineup for the 1957 Brooklyn Dodgers?

A: The 1957 Brooklyn Dodgers, managed by Walter Alston:
1B Gil Hodges
2B Jim Gilliam
SS Charlie Neal
3B Pee Wee Reese
LF Gino Cimoli
CF Duke Snider
RF Carl Furillo
C Roy Campanella
UT Randy Jackson

Their rotation consisted of:
SP Don Drysdale
SP Don Newcombe
SP Johnny Podres
SP Danny McDevitt
SP Roger Craig

The batting order fluctuated quite often. Gilliam virtually always led off, and Snider was the permanent third hitter. The rest of the lineup was subject to constant change. Cimoli had a big offensive season, batting .293, and batted second quite often as a result. Campanella, worn down from so many years of catching, was no longer the offensive force he had once been, and as a result batted eighth the majority of the time. Hodges alternated between the fourth and fifth holes.

Thanks for the responses. It's a question i've never been able to get answered. It was a special game for my dad as he attended all of the Brooklyn Dodgers games, he said that last game was so great and so sad at the same time. He's always tried to remember what the lineup was. Thanks again!

Managed to find the boxscore for the game. You can piece together the starting lineup from it fairly easily.

Behind the five-hit pitching of Danny McDevitt, the Dodgers won that game, 2-0, against the Pirates before a sparse crowd of 6,702 fans at Ebbets Field.

It was the seventh victory against four losses for the left-handed McDevitt.

The Dodgers scored in the first inning on a walk, an error and a double by Elmer Valo. They pushed across another run in the third on singles by Gino Cimoli and Gil Hodges, around an infield out.
