Description by OLDIES.com:
From the moment they became a part of everyday life in Brooklyn, the Dodgers were something special. Night after night they battled, winning the hearts of fans both young and old. But then they would face the Yankees in the World Series, and "Dem Bums" would break those very same hearts. "Wait until next year," became the mantra in Brooklyn, and following five gut-wrenching World Series losses to those Yankees, "next year" finally came in 1955 when the Dodgers became world champions.
Two seasons later, the team moved to Los Angeles, where in 1959 they again captured the title. The days of Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider and Jackie Robinson gave way to Sandy Koufax, Maury Wills and Don Drysdale - and two more championships followed in '63 and '65. "Fernandomania" rocked Los Angeles in the early '80s, and both Valenzuela and Steve Garvey helped lead the Dodgers to still another title in '81. Then came the magical season of 1988, when Orel Hershiser rewrote the record books - and Kirk Gibson simply wrote a fairy tale.
These are The Championship Years.
