Los Angeles Dodgers - Home Ballparks

Fall 2022: To purchase a reasonably priced 8" x 24" plaqued mounted version of the Los Angeles Dodgers poster that's ready to hang on your wall, please visit Heritage Sports Stuff.

A. The Los Angeles Dodgers National League franchise was established in 1890. The team has been known by a number of names as follows:
Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers (American Association) 1884 - 1888
Brooklyn Bridegrooms (American Association) 1889 - 1889
Brooklyn Bridegrooms 1890-1898
Brooklyn Superbas 1899-1910
Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers 1911-1912
Brooklyn Dodgers 1913
Brooklyn Robins 1914-1931
Brooklyn Dodgers 1932-1957
Los Angeles Dodgers 1958-Present
Note: The history of the Dodgers’ team nickname prior to 1914 is the subject of some debate, largely because nicknames were somewhat unofficial in baseball’s early years.

B. The Dodgers have played in a number of stadiums:

D. Celebrate the Dodgers' uniform history by owning a piece of history:
If you love the Los Angeles Dodgers and the history of the Dodgers franchise, you might really love to own an original piece of artwork celebrating the team's historic uniforms as seen in the poster at the top of this blog - you can actually own one of those original pieces of art! There are only 16 pieces of original art available for sale, and when these 16 are sold, that's it, they're all sold out.

These original watercolor paintings would make a great gift (birthday gift, anniversary gift, retirement gift, Christmas gift, etc.) for someone you love or even a great gift for yourself (one of these framed pieces would look fantastic in your home or office). Each piece can be bought one of three ways:
1. As unframed art that you could have framed or mounted yourself (the one on the left)
2. Framed in our "Classic" framed version (the middle version)
3. Framed in our "Deluxe" framed version (the version on the right)

If you would like more information about this great artwork including the three ways you could purchase each piece, please visit our Los Angeles Dodgers YouTube video at or go directly to the artwork website where you can see and purchase the artwork.

And if someone you know loves the history of sports uniforms (but maybe another team) and loves great art, please let them know that we have over 1500 pieces of great original artwork for sale at (all NFL teams, all MLB teams, all NHL teams, all CFL teams, select NCAA football teams) or check out each team's video at the Heritage Sports Art YouTube Channel

E. Stadium artwork
Please note that the actual original, hand drawn pen and ink sketches used for the 7 ballpark images shown above are available for sale as a complete collection to one Dodgers fan. If you are interested in being the owner of this complete and original collection of Los Angeles Dodgers home ballpark images, please contact me by email and I can explain how they can all be framed in one beautiful piece.

And please search my blog archive for other blogs on the history of the Dodgers.
