Starting his administration, the Dodgers won league titles in 1952 and 1953, the latter with a record of 105 victories, but both seasons had as outcome defeat in the World Series against the Yankees. The first game in Los Angeles took place at the Memorial Coliseum on April 18 in front of 78,672 spectators with a win over the Giants, who had also moved its headquarters to the west coast, specifically the city of San Francisco.
In 2013 the Dodgers returned to the postseason. However, nothing seemed encouraging for June when they were in last place in the division and in charge of Don Mattingly at risk.
The situation changed with the recovery of injured players like Hanley Ramirez, and arrival at the club of the Cuban rookie Yasiel Puig for hitters, plus the contribution of Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Hansen Zack Greinke on the mound.
