It has been thirty years since the Los Angeles Dodgers were crowned World Series Champions. In that time have come some heartbreaking moments.
For thirty years, the Los Angeles Dodgers have watched other teams in Major League Baseball record the last out of the season to win the World Series. Never have the Dodgers recorded the out.
Last year in a magical year which saw them win 104 games and dominate the National League playoffs, the Dodgers got to see the final out from their home dugout. Cruelly, they watched the Houston Astros celebrate a game seven win in the World Series.
It was yet another setback in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ effort to finally win the elusive franchise’s seventh World Series title.
