The Los Angeles Dodgers are one of the most storied franchises in MLB history, starting in Brooklyn and then moving the Los Angeles. The organization has won six World Series, and several All-Stars and Hall of Famers have worn Dodger blue at some point in their respective careers.
On Saturday, the Dodgers hosted the 2015 Old-Timers game. As they’ve done in years prior, former Dodger greats took the field at Dodger Stadium. Coming from a number of eras, players such as Nomar Garciaparra, Orel Hershiser, and Fernando Valenzuela were among the participants.
Along with gathering the former players for a semi-competitive game, the Dodgers honored the 1955 and 1965 World Series teams. Five members of the 1955 championship team — Sandy Koufax, Tommy Lasorda, Don Newcombe, Ed Roebuck and Roger Craig — were on hand for the festivities. They were joined by Tommy Davis, Maury Wills, Wally Moon, Ron Perranoski, Wes Parker, Jeff Torborg, Ron Fairly, Jim Lefebvre, Al Ferrara and Lou Johnson as players who were on the 1965 team:
