Dodgers GifBy Theodore N.

Did you know the the LA Dodgers were in Brooklyn originally until they moved to Los Angeles in 1957.

The Dodgers were founded in 1883 this makes them the third oldest MLB team.

The Dodgers were the first team to have a African American player, that player was Jackie Robinson and his number 42 is a famous retired number for the LA Dodgers.

The Dodgers have won six previous World Series, 1955, 1959, 1963, 1965, 1981, and 1988.

Dave Roberts is the current manager and was born May 31, 1972 (age 45),in  Naha, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. Before managing the Dodgers he was the manager of the San Diego Padres.

The Dodgers are considered to be the best MLB team by many to be the best team currently because they have the best normal season record, at 104 wins and 58 losses.

The Dodgers Home uniform is white with the red number of the Player, Dodgers in blue across the shirt with a blue hat, and blue socks.

The Dodgers Away uniform is light grey with the red number of the Player, Los Angeles in blue across the shirt with a blue hat, and blue socks.

Editor’s Note:  Did you know that Mrs. (Daco) Loewen named her daughter Brooklyn.  Coincidence?  I don’t think so.
