The Los Angeles Dodgers are a Major League Baseball team that plays in the National League Western Division. The Dodgers began play in 1884 as the Brooklyn Atlantics and have been known by several nicknames since (including the Grays, Grooms, Bridegrooms, Superbas, and Robins), before adopting the Dodgers name for good in 1932.[1] They played in Brooklyn, New York until their move to Los Angeles in 1958. During the teams existence, they have employed 30 different managers.[2] The duties of the team manager include team strategy and leadership on and off the field.[3]
