Dodgers Receive the 2021 Beacon of Light Award From the City of Los Angeles



The Dodgers were one of the few things to go right for the city of Los Angeles in 2020. Between the death of Kobe Bryant and the pandemic as a whole, Southern California had little to be happy about for most of the year. 

The Dodgers changed that with one quick trip to the postseason in Texas. Los Angeles brought home their first World Series title in 32 years, taking down the Tampa Bay Rays in 6 games. That was after a 7-game series against the Braves in which they fell behind 3 games to 1. 

Because of that success, the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce awarded the Dodgers the Beacon of Light award for 2020. The award is present to both the Dodgers and the Lakers for giving the city hope of a brighter tomorrow. The 2 teams exemplified champions on and off of the field, supporting the community and ultimately bringing home their respective titles.

The Lakers didn’t exactly have an easy path to their title either. They had to stop the season near the end before going into a bubble in Orlando. Ultimately, both the Dodgers and Laker brought home the title to the city of LA in the same year for the first time since 1988. Quite a feat. 

Other Dodgers News

The Dodgers are still facing the likelihood that they will lose Joc Pederson in free agency. The left-handed outfielder has been reported in rumors connected to the Giants, and the two sides have at least talked about a deal. Still no word on how far those conversations have progressed.
