If you're interested in more about this story, you should check out this episode of my favorite local history show on KCET, "Lost LA"..................

https://www.kcet.org/shows/lost-la/episodes/before-the-dodgers

One interesting thing about this story is the fact that Latinos HATED the Dodgers for many years after that. What brought them back, and made them what is now the largest segment of Dodgers fans out here...............................................................................?

This guy right here................................................ :clap:



I've never seen a city go crazy for one athlete in such a short amount of time, in my life. It truly was Fernandomania out here. :nod:
I am now on Facebook! Come check me out...

Thanks for that Ivan.

Personally, I wished the Dodgers had stayed in NY. I'll be a Mets fan 'til I die, but I still wish they hadn't moved. My Mom was a Dodger fan and introduced me to baseball when the Mets were formed.
