Los Angeles Dodgers is an American professional baseball team based in Los Angeles that plays in the National League (NL).
The history of the team starts in Brooklyn, New York, in the 19th century when the team was known as the Brooklyn Dodgers. The Dodgers were originally formed as Brooklyn Dodgers in 1883 as a member of the minor league Inter-State Association of Professional Baseball Clubs. They later moved to the American Association and in 1890 to the National League. The team was given several titles including the Brooklyn Atlantics, Brooklyn Grays, Brooklyn Bridegrooms, Brooklyn Grooms, Brooklyn Superbas, and Brooklyn Robins before officially becoming the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The team joined the American Association in 1884 and won the league pennant in 1889. Brooklyn was one of four American Association teams to join the NL the following year. The team's debut into the NL began on a very positive note as the team nicknamed the "Bridegrooms" won their first NL pennant with an 86-43 record. The Brooklyn team featured among a number of other future Hall of Famers on their rosters, including
Roy Campanella , Leo Durocher , Burleigh Grimes, Willie Keeler, Pee Wee Reese, Wilbert Robinson, Duke Snider, Dazzy Vance, and Zack Wheat, the first African American to play major professional baseball, Jackie Robinson, who made his debut as a Dodger in 1947 and won the first Rookie of the Year award.
The team moved to Los Angeles before the 1958 season, where it continues its history as the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers have won 22 NL pennants in all, winning it 12 times in Brooklyn - 1890, 1899, 1900, 1916, 1920, 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1955, 1956 - and 10 times in Los Angeles - 1959, 1963, 1965, 1966, 1974, 1977, 1978, 1981, 1988, with their recent title in 2017.
