They were an affiliate of the old Brooklyn Dodgers (in Brooklyn, New York) of the National League and later their successors, the Los Angeles Dodgers (after 1955) from 1941-1953 and 1964-1967. They won the League championships in 1941, 1948 and 1951. The Dodgers entered the California League in 1964 to replace the previous Santa Barbara Rancheros. The Dodgers' home stadium was Laguna Ball Park. The S.B. Dodgers were plagued by low crowd attendances, averaging only 225 spectators per game. At the end of the 1967 season the Santa Barbara Dodgers franchise was transferred east to Bakersfield, California. The Laguna Park stadium was demolished in 1970, and replaced by a parking lot, and no professional minor league baseball team has been based in Santa Barbara since then.
