Los Angeles Dodgers Franchise History:
The Dodgers franchise was established as the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1883 and moved to Los Angeles in 1958. The Dodgers were extremely successful when they were based in Brooklyn winning the National League Pennant on twelve occasions as well as the 1955 World Series. The Dodgers also stamped their place in history by becoming the first MLB team to sign an African-American player when they started Jackie Robinson in 1952. The move to Los Angeles did not affect the franchises success and they added five World Series Championships in their first thirty years in their new home. However, the Dodgers have struggled since their last World Series victory in 1988; qualifying for the MLB playoffs on just five occasions and failing to return to the World Series.
Los Angeles Dodgers Offensive Star: Matt Kemp
Matt Kemp was selected in the sixth round of the 2003 MLB draft by the Los Angeles Dodgers. After setting franchise records in the minor leagues Kemp was called up to the Majors in 2006. Kemp struggled to find his feet in his first season and a half in the MLB but found form at the end of the 2007 season. After a string of excellent seasons Kemp took his performance to the next level in 2011 thanks largely to improvements in his base running. He finished the season as the National League RBI and Hitting Champion and was named Baseball American Player of the Year. Injuries plagued Kemp’s 2012 season but after successful off-season surgery he is fit and ready for another standout season.
Los Angeles Dodgers Defensive Star: Clayton Kershaw
Clayton Kershaw was drafted with the seventh overall pick of the 2006 MLB draft. Kershaw spent just one season in the minor leagues before he was promoted to the MLB at just twenty years of age in 2008. After inconsistent form, in 2009 and 2010, Kershaw produced a stellar season in 2011 to stamp himself as one of the best starting pitchers in the league. He received the National League Cy Young Award and won the National League Triple Crown. Kershaw backed up his breakout season with another superb year in 2012 and finished the year with the best ERA in the MLB. At only twenty-four years of age Kershaw has a massive future in front of him and will be the vital fixture in the Dodgers’ bullpen for many years to come.
Los Angeles Dodgers Manager: Don Mattingly
After a distinguished fifteen year playing career with the New York Yankees Don Mattingly joined the organization as a coach in 2004. Mattingly moved to the Yankees in 2008 and became manager of the side in 2011. The Dodgers have finished both season with Mattingly in charge with a winning record and he has helped Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw develop into elite players. Mattingly will be hoping to lead the talented Dodgers roster back to a deep playoffs run in 2011.
