Established in 1883, the team originated in Brooklyn, New York, were known as the Brooklyn Atlantics. Although, quickly the name was changed into several things until, the Dodgers stuck. Under the Dodgers brand, the team was home to Jackie Robinson, appeared in the World Series 18 times, and won 7.
However, Real estate businessman Walter O’Malley had acquired majority ownership of the Dodgers in 1950. Originally it a new Brooklyn stadium was planned but city officials bashed the idea. O’Malley then thought of moving the team to a whole new location which ended up being Los Angeles.
