Los Angeles Dodgers Playoff History
The Los Angeles Dodgers have a proud playoff history, dating back to their time in Brooklyn. Since moving to Los Angeles in 1958, the team has been in the playoffs on many occasions, often as one of the top teams in the National League. With multiple championships and World Series appearances under their belts, it is no surprise that many teams have been vanquished by the Dodgers in October.
Los Angeles Dodgers fans were able to celebrate multiple championships in both the 1960s and 1980s, as the team celebrated some of the most successful eras in the history of the game. Those championships in the 1980s brought about some serious rivalries as the Dodgers managed to get the best of both the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics, both of which carried some geographical significance.
In beating the Yankees, a team that had multiple Hall of Fame players, the Dodgers managed to get the better of a team in a battle of East coast vs. West coast. Given the climate of music and pop culture at the time, the victory for the West coast felt even more significant than usual. And in defeating the Athletics, the Dodgers proved that they were the best team in California, against an Athletics team that swept its way into the World Series.
Against the Athletics, one of the most iconic moments in the history of the Major League Baseball playoffs happened, when a hobbled Kirk Gibson stepped to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game One of the series. The Dodgers had a man on base, down by a run, with Hall of Fame closer Dennis Eckersley on the mound. Gibson was looking to keep the Dodgers in contention in the all-important first game.
What he did instead was win the game for the Dodgers, as Gibson looped a ball over the right field fence and trotted around the bases while pumping his fist in an image that will forever be remembered in the history of the sport. The legendary call summed it up perfectly: “I can’t believe what I just saw.” The 5-4 win gave the Dodgers momentum, which they carried en route to a 4-1 series victory over the A’s.
