From their origins as the Brooklyn Atlantics in 1884, through their departure from their beloved borough in 1957, to their record-breaking popularity in sunny Los Angeles, the Dodgers baseball team has been an unstoppable force in professional baseball for well over a century. The franchise has captured a record 21 National League titles, won six World Series championships, and produced dozens of Hall-of-Famers. The Dodgers revolutionized the sports landscape with the signing of Jackie Robinson in 1947 and have boasted a list of players that reads like an all-time all-star team—from Walter Alston to Zack Wheat, Wee Willie Keeler to Pee Wee Reese, Dazzy Vance to Sandy Koufax, Duke Snider to Jeff Kent. The team’s two longtime homes—Brooklyn’s Ebbets Field and Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium—stand out in the pantheon of great baseball palaces.

Dodgers Past & Present traces the history of this storied franchise from its origins in the 1880s to its latest accomplishments on the field. Pairing historic black-and-white photos and contemporary images of the modern game, the book explores the ballparks and the fans, the players and the teams that have defined Dodger baseball and captured the attention of fans nationwide.

Steven Travers is a graduate of the University of Southern California and an ex-professional baseball player. He helped lead his suburban California high school baseball team to the national championship in his senior year; attended college on an athletic scholarship; was an all-conference pitcher; and coached at USC, at Cal-Berkeley, and in Europe. He also attended law school, served in the Army, was a sports agent, and is a guest lecturer at the University of Southern California. He is the author of numerous books, including Dodgers Essential: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Real Fan!, Barry Bonds: Baseball’s Superman, and The 1969 Miracle Mets. Steve has written for the Los Angeles Times, StreetZebra magazine in Los Angeles, and the San Francisco Examiner. A fifth-generation Californian, Steve has a daughter, Elizabeth Travers, and still resides in the Golden State.
