Did U Know?: L.A. Dodgers Name Origins

Whether you're a Dodgers fan or not, everyone knows the Dodgers came from Brooklyn, New York. But do you know how they got the name 'Dodgers'?

Well, I'll tell ya, since I know alot of people do not know. They were formed (obviously) in Brooklyn during the year 1890. At that time, Brooklyn had hundreds of trolleys zig-zagging through its streets, and pedestrians were constantly scurrying out of their way. That's why their baseball team was called the 'Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers' (Later shortened to just 'Dodgers'). The team moved to L.A. in 1958.
