Dodgers Celebrate 50 Years with a Traffic Jam ()
It’s been 50 years since the Dodgers came to Los Angeles from Brooklyn, and the big news for Dodger fans is Joe Torre — who’s won more games than any but seven other managers … most recently, of course, for the Yankees. On Saturday it was déjà vu all over again when the Dodgers went back to the Coliseum to play the Red Sox. A certified 115,300 people showed up, which qualifies as the biggest crowd ever to watch a major league baseball game.
Which Way L.A.? is made possible in part by the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation, the Nathan Cummings Foundation, and the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation, which supports study and research into policy issues of the Los Angeles region.
