Overview

The Dodgers won World Championships in Brooklyn and LA during the same decade and boast a devoted fan base on both coasts and all points in between; and today, thanks to past stars like Fernando Valenzuela and Chan Ho Park, that fan base is spread the world over.

Every Major League team has a history—but this is the franchise of Jackie Robinson. Every Major League team has players they call “heroes”—but with Robinson you can drop the emphasis: he’s truly an American icon, American hero, baseball legend, and Dodger great.

This is the franchise of Walter Alston, Leo Durocher and Tommy Lasorda; Walter O’Malley, Larry MacPhail and Branch Rickey; the timeless calls of Vin Scully; and no fewer than 43 Hall of Fame players who spent a portion of their careers with the Dodgers.

You can’t tell the story of baseball’s history without the Dodgers.

This trivia book is intended to help diehard Dodger fans celebrate their beloved team. It’s been a long time since April 21, 1890, when the franchise recorded its first official victory in the National League—but 124 years and 10,000 wins later the team is still going strong, still producing great players and historic moments.

Enjoy the trivia, Think Blue, and have fun reminiscing.
