Dodger in California, MLB veteran

Ow-ow, like every Wednesday, it’s Mail Day. When you write, please indicate which city or towns you are writing from, and send your full name. Thanks a lot.

Egidio Vasquez of Valera asks: “Why did the Dodgers and Giants leave New York?”

Amigo Yoyo: In 1957 the owners of the Dodgers and Giants, Walter O’Malley and Horace Stoneham, were looking for space to build two new stadiums, as Ebbets Field and the Polo Grounds were out of date. He did not receive a satisfactory response from the city, at the same time that Los Angeles officials were looking for a major league franchise based on the progress of the Hawaii flights.

Los Angeles was the most economically powerful city in California, but San Francisco was second. And in both he gave them all the support they were looking for. So they left after the 1957 campaign, which was a success, as the state had room for three more teams from the Major Leagues, the Athletics, Padres and Angels.

Hermosillo to Lizardo L. Diaz N. Asks: “Were any players from the first Major League, National Association, 1871–1875 players elected to the Cooperstown Hall of Fame?”

Friend Liz: The eight who were part of that league occupied niches in Cooperstown, Adrian (Cap) Anson, Candy Cummings, Pud Garvin, Jim O’Rourke, Albert Spalding, Deacon White, George Wright and Harry Wright.

Cabudare to Oscar J. Rojas P. asks: “Is it true that the first Latin American native to play in the Major Leagues was a Cuban named Esteban Belen and that the stolen base record does not belong to Rickey Henderson?”

Dear Friend: Esteban Belen, a native of Cuba, was the first Latin American big leaguer, with the Troy Haymakers from New York, aboard the National Association in 1871; and the first in the 20th century was Luis Castro from Medellin, Colombia… Rickey Henderson holds the record for steals in a season, 130 in 156 attempts in 1982; And he’s also the all-time leader in runs scored, with 1,706 in 1,741 starts, and 2,295 in runs.

Lizardo Paz from Tijuana asks: “What is Commissioner Rob Manfred’s salary in 2022?”

Friend Liz: 17 million 500 thousand dollars a year, plus a series of bonuses, which increased the amount to 20 million this year.

Thank you life that has given me so much, a reader like you too.
