The Los Angeles Dodgers are one of the oldest franchises in all of modern baseball.
Conceived in Brooklyn back in 1883, the team spent nearly 75 years in Brooklyn with the
same team name. In 1958, the Dodgers decided to move the franchise to the opposite coast,
and set up shop in Los Angeles. In their time as a club, they have been able to win the World
Series 6 times and pick up the National League Pennant 21 times and sell amazing numbers
of Dodgers tickets.
The Dodgers have had numerous rivalries throughout their impressive run in Major League
Baseball. This meant big buzz and many Dodgers tickets being sold. One of
these dates back to the early 1900's when their inner city rivals, the New York Yankees, would prove
to be formidable opponents. The two teams found themselves
battling in many World Series games. The Dodgers one three of their Championships by beating the Yankees in the World Series, with one of the victories being a sweep in 1963. This doesn't even touch the rivalry that currently
exists between the Dodgers and San Francisco Giants, also starting back when both teams
shared homes in New York. Any time the Dodgers go up against the Giants in LA, Dodgers tickets are sold out.
The Dodgers have also had their own fair share of legendary players on their roster in
their lengthy legacy, the most famous of which being Jackie Robinson. He played
for the Brooklyn Dodgers for nearly 10 years, leading them to one of their World Series
Championships, selling thousands of Dodgers tickets, and obtaining numerous accolades
The Dodgers have one of the most impressive fan bases in all of professional baseball. They were the first franchise to sell over 3 million Dodgers tickets in a season
back in 1978. To further illustrate this point, they were able to sell over 3 million Dodgers
tickets six more times before any other team had managed this impressive feat once. More
recently, the LA Dodgers set a world record in 2008 for greatest attendance to a single
baseball game in which they took on the Boston Red Sox. This game alone boasted 115,300
Dodgers tickets being sold for Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Fans of the franchise have
also made Dodgers gear the third best in sales throughout the world. When you
take into account some of the clubs in professional baseball and their impressive fan bases,
this is a testament to how many people carry Dodgers pride.
The franchise home is Dodger Stadium. This has been their home field since 1962,
as the Dodgers played their first four seasons at the aforementioned LA Memorial Coliseum.
Currently, it is the third oldest baseball park being used and the only other older parks are
Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. The stadium can seat 56,000;
however, it has seen as many as 57,099 Dodgers tickets be sold, which was the franchise record set
for their season opener in 2009.
Dodger Stadium is one of the only parks that has never changed its capacity, and has seated
56,000 for as long as the park has been in existence.
