Los Angeles Dodgers 101
Established in 1883, the Dodgers have a storied history, playing in Brooklyn, New York, until 1958, when the team moved to Los Angeles.
The team plays in Dodger Stadium, the 3rd oldest baseball stadium in Major League Baseball after Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts, and Wrigley Field in Chicago, Illinois.
A member of the West division of the National League, the Dodgers have won 21 National League championships, winning the World Series 6 times – once as the Brooklyn Dodgers and 5 times as the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are fierce rivals with the San Francisco Giants, a rivalry that goes back to the days before the move by both teams from the East to the West Coast.
Originally known as the New York Giants, the team moved to Northern California the same year that the Dodgers moved to Southern California.
