Los Angeles Dodgers Tickets
Los Angeles Dodgers Tickets
The Los Angeles Dodgers started out in Brooklyn, New York, in 1883. They became the Dodgers in 1932 and moved from NYC to Los Angeles in 1958. In 1962, they took up residence in Dodger Stadium, which is now the third-oldest baseball stadium in the United States. The Dodgers have won the National League pennant 21 times and the World Series six times. Eight of their pitchers have received the Cy Young Award, including Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, and Don Sutton. Other famous ex-Dodgers are Frank Robinson, Fernando Valenzuela, and Rickey Henderson.
Dodger Stadium, Home to the Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers have played in Dodger Stadium, located close to downtown LA, since 1962. It is the third largest baseball stadium, only behind Bostons Fenway Park and Chicagos Wrigley Field. At 56,000 seats, Dodger Stadium can seat more fans than any other baseball park. During the 2005 off-season, almost every seat in the stadium was replaced with orange, turquoise, yellow and light blue seats simulating the stadiums original color scheme. Dodger Stadium has hosted the World Series eight times and the Major League All-Star Game once.
Los Angeles Dodgers and the National League West
The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the National League West division, along with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, San Diego Padres, and San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers have captured the division title a total of eleven times, most recently in 2009. Additionally, theyve won 21 National League pennants and six World Series titles. While the Dodgers face stiff competition both within their division and out, they have a fierce rivalry with the San Francisco Giants that dates back to the late 19th century. At that time both clubs were based in New York City.
Los Angeles Dodgers 2012 Team Outlook
The Los Angeles Dodgers have made a lot of headlines over the past year, but it has had nothing to do with the team on the field. The acrimonious divorce between Frank McCourt, the current owner of the Dodgers, and his former wife Jamie has paralyzed the team. However, the end of that bitter episode appears to be near, and new owners will be able to take over the team soon. The new owners will be getting a team that has some valuable pieces but also a lot of holes to fill. In particular, the new owners will get outfielder Matt Kemp and pitcher Clayton Kershaw, two outstanding players who can be the core of a rebuilding effort. However, the Dodgers have been reluctant to spend money to fill those holes as long as the ownership situation remains unsettled, which means that the team has only made some low-key acquisitions this offseason. As such, 2012 may be something of a lost year for the Dodgers.
