For Want of a Stadium: A Story of Development, Displacement, and the Dodgers
We all know the story: After their 1955 World Series win, Dodgers owner Walter O’Malley uprooted Brooklyn’s beloved team, moving “Dem Bums” to the sun and palm trees in LA. But what was the impact on their adopted city? In the new book Stealing Home: Los Angeles, the Dodgers, and the Lives Caught In Between, former VICE sports editor Eric Nusbaum delves into the story of building Dodgers Stadium. From the Mexican-American communities it displaced, to the upheaval it caused to the city’s urban flow, Nussbaum drives home an untold tale of lofty ambitions and heavy costs.
