The team moved to Los Angeles in 1958 and played until 1961 in the venerable Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum before opening the 1962 season in the brand new Dodgers Stadium which has been their home ever since.
In 1959 they won their first World Series in their new home, the second in the team’s history, and have won a total of six more championships since then.
Besides a stellar record of achievement the team is noteworthy for a number of baseball firsts, including starting the first African-American player, Jackie Robinson, in 1947, the first game broadcast on television in 1939, the first to use batting helmets in 1941, and the largest home opening game attendance in 1958.
