Los Angeles Dodgers
From Coast to Coast: The Official History
Introduction by Vin Scully
Foreword by Tommy Lasorda
Since 1901, the Dodgers have drawn more fans than any other baseball franchise in history. Players such as Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, Steve Garvey, and Fernando Valenzuela rank among the legends of the game, and former managers such as Casey Stengel, Walter Alston, and Tommy Lasorda stand among the greats. Today, with stars like Clayton Kershaw, the Dodgers continue to claim legions of dedicated fans.
This book of original essays, rare photos and documents, and unique memorabilia celebrates the colorful and diverse history of the franchise. Here are the early years in Brooklyn, including the historic arrival of Jackie Robinson in 1947 and the fabled 1955 World Series Championship, as well as the move to Los Angeles, where this famous baseball legacy merged with Hollywood.
