Dodgers and Angels, a historical perspective:
In 1957, in order for the Dodgers to acquire Los Angeles, Mr. O’Malley had to make a trade with the Cubs because they controlled Los Angeles as a minor league territory. He couldn’t move the Dodgers until he had the rights, so he traded Ft. Worth.
I played for the Los Angeles Angels in 1957, which was the triple-A club for the Dodgers in the Pacific Coast League. Interestingly enough, Sparky Anderson was my teammate that year.
