 History, Comments, Contributions
Although the 1954 Dodgers won 92 games, good for second in the league, 1954 is remembered as a bit of an off-year for the Dodgers. In 1953 they had won 105 games, and in 1955 they would win the 1955 World Series.
1954, though, was auspicious as the rookie year for manager Walter Alston as well as players Tommy Lasorda and Don Zimmer. Both Lasorda and Zimmer would eventually go on to managerial careers, as would back-up player Dick Williams.
