A Team of Firsts

Originally known as the Brooklyn Atlantics, the Los Angeles Dodgers were founded in 1883. In 1890 the team joined the National League and would go on to win the championship in their first year as part of the league. From 1890 to 1930 the team would go by various names including Bridegrooms, Grooms and Robins before settling in on the Dodgers. They were named the Dodgers after the Brooklyn residents who would dodge cars in the streets. During their time in Brooklyn the team made several historic strides including their first World Series, but more significantly they drafted the first African American to the league-Jackie Robinson. This groundbreaking decision they made in 1947 lead them to success throughout the next decade, and it helped pave the way for other African American players in the league.

In 1956 the city of Los Angeles expressed interest in getting a team and when the current Dodger owner caught word of this he decided to make the move. Along the way he convinced the other baseball team in the city to make the move with him, the team would later become the San Francisco Giants. In April of 1958 the Dodgers played their first game in Los Angeles, against the Giants. They were the first MLB team to play in Los Angeles up to that point. In 1962 Dodger Stadium was opened and they officially had a home ball park to play in. After moving to Los Angeles, the Dodgers have won eleven National League Championships and five world series, with the most recent being in 1988.

A Pitcher’s Ball Park

The team plays in Dodger Stadium, which is located north of downtown Los Angeles. Opened in 1962, the stadium is the third-oldest in the country, after Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. It is also the oldest ball park west of the Mississippi River, and it is the largest baseball stadium in the world in terms of seating capacity. The stadium is also known as a “pitcher’s ball park” because the conditions of the ball park tend to work in favor of pitchers, and since it has opened there have been a total of twelve no-hitters.

Rivalries

With the Dodgers originally starting out in New York with fellow Californian team the Giants, a rivalry between the two was only natural. The two competed against each other head to head while they were in New York and nothing changed when they made the move to California. If anything, the rivalry intensified. Due to the persistence between the two teams, it is known as one of the greatest rivalries within American sports. The other major rival of the Dodgers is the New York Yankees. Dating back to when they played in Brooklyn, the two dueled it out on the field every season. Appearing in eleven World Series match-ups together only intensified the already set in stone rivalry.
