With highlights of each season, moments fans love to remember (Kirk Gibson's home run in the 1988 World Series) or wish to forget (the 1992 season), as well as those who have graced the field of Chavez Ravine, here are the greatest memories of the boys in blue. The Dodgers: 60 Years in Los Angeles chronicles the team's thrilling, roller coaster history since arriving in the West Coast from Brooklyn. Featuring the stellar talents and memorable personalities of Dodgers greats such as Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, Tommy Lasorda, Fernando Valenzuela, and Kirk Gibson, as well as the stars of today, like Clayton Kershaw, Justin Turner, Yasiel Puig, Cody Bellinger, and Corey Seager, author Michael Schiavone offers an in-depth history of the team since their arrival in 1958. In 1957, the Dodgers left their home of Brooklyn, New York, where they had been since their inception in 1884, for the sun of California. Since arriving in LA, the team has won five World Series Championships and ten National League Pennants, and become one of the most popular organizations in Major League Baseball. Whether you're a fan of the Dodgers of old or today's team, this book offers the most information of the team's time in California than any other on the market.
