Our Story in Pictures
Dodger Fans at Dodger Stadium Box Office, 1977

Photo by Art Rogers from the Los Angeles Times Photograph Collection at UCLA Library.

1977. October 10. Caption: "DODGER DIEHARDS--More than 150 "real Dodger fans" stay in line after 9 a.m. at ticket office on Stadium Way although no World Series tickets were on sale there." It was Tommy Lasorda's first season as general manager for the Dodgers and the team had, two days earlier, defeated the Philadelphia Phillies for the National League Championship. That season, the Dodgers were the first team with four players to hit 30 or more home runs in one season, with Steve Garvey hitting 33, Reggie Smith, 32, Ron Cey, 30, and Dusty Baker, 30. This photo was taken the day before the Dodgers faced the New York Yankees for first game of the 1977 World Series in New York. The Dodgers ended up losing that series to the Yankees, 4 games to 2.
