Brooklyn, LA Dodgers - Greatest Sports Franchises

Brooklyn, LA Dodgers - Greatest Sports Franchises The team that eventually became the LA Dodgers was actually founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1883. After the team name was finally solidified in the 1930s, Dodger dominance finally began. But it was in 1947 that the Dodgers made history by signing the MLB’s first African American player, Jackie Robinson. Integration helped give the team the edge it needed, and the wins soon started piling up. In 1957, the Dodgers shipped West to Los Angeles, and continued succeeding through the years with help from players like Sandy Koufax, Fernando Valenzuela and Hideo Nomo. In this video, WatchMojo.com continues our series on the Greatest Sports Franchises of All Time with a look at the Brooklyn/Los Angeles Dodgers.
