The Los Angeles Dodgers have gone through a lot of trials and tribulation but as of March 28th, 2012 the organization gets a taste of optimism. Earvin “Magic” Johnson, one of the greatest icons is Los Angeles history, is the face of the Dodgers new ownership group. Magic is also the organizations first black owner. This being the same organization that signed the first black baseball player; Jackie Robinson, makes this situation even more spectacular.
The Los Angeles Dodgers only have one more championship than their new co-owner Magic Johnson. Both Magic and the Dodgers won their last championship in 1988, so it is only fitting that both Los Angeles staples link up to win another together.
