Both Dodger Stadium and the forced exodus by Walter O’Malley had their genesis in the condition of Ebbets Field, which served as the Dodgers’ home base from 1913-’57. By the 1950s, the arena had shown its age, which was affecting ticket sales. Team owner Walter O’Malley wished to build a new stadium in Brooklyn, but the city refused. Due to this, O’Malley contacted officials from Los Angeles to arrange the move, despite resistance from New York officials. In return, O’Malley was offered land on Chavez Ravine, which became the site of Dodger Stadium. Dodger Stadium is by far the largest baseball stadium in use by the MLB, with a capacity of about 53,275.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were originally from New York City, going under various unofficial names until settling on the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1932. The name “dodger” came from the perception that the players dodged trolleys whilst playing in one of their early parks in New York. During their time in Brooklyn, they won several pennants and other accolades. In addition to being the first ball club to televise their games, they also were the first to break the color barrier by signing Jackie Robinson. The team moved to Los Angeles in 1958, first playing in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum until Dodger Stadium opened in July 1962. In total, the team won six World Series titles (1955, 1959, 1963, 1965, 1981 and 1988) and 21 NL pennants.
