Los Angeles Dodgers Details
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers were a founding member of the National League and played for the first time in 1883. The team got its start in Brooklyn, where they played at the famous Ebbets Field. Jackie Robinson, who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier and became the first black player in the major leagues, played his whole career for the Brooklyn Dodgers (1947-1956). Robinson’s number 42 is honored by every major league team.
By the late 1950s, the Dodgers were looking for a new home to replace the aging Ebbets Field. They were not able to get a stadium built in New York, so the Dodgers moved across the country to Los Angeles for the 1958 season.
The Dodgers — including both the Brooklyn and Los Angeles incarnations — have won 22 National League Pennants and six World Series titles. Their most recent World Series championship came in 1988 under manager Tommy Lasorda.
The 2017 Dodgers won the National League West Division and were among the favorites to win the World Series going into the postseason. All-star pitcher Clayton Kershaw finished in second place for the NL Cy Young Award (the award would have been his fourth), and Cody Bellinger topped an impressive group of rookies to win the NL Rookie of the Year award. Bellinger hit 39 home runs and hit for the cycle in his rookie season.
In the 2017 postseason, the Dodgers swept the Arizona Diamondbacks in the first round and played the Chicago Cubs in the NLCS. This series was a rematch of the 2016 NLCS in which the Cubs defeated the Dodgers on their way to their first World Series title in 108 years. The Dodgers were able to win the second time around. They defeated the Cubs in five games to advance to their first World Series since 1988.
The Dodgers and Astros combined for an MLB record 25 home runs in the 2017 World Series, setting an MLB record. The Astros ultimately defeated the Dodgers in seven games. In 2018, the Dodgers will try to win their sixth consecutive division title and return to the World Series.
