Box Office Success

On September 4, 1966, the Dodgers became the first MLB team to draw more than two million fans at home and on the road in the same season. The Dodgers were defending World Champions with Hall of Fame pitchers Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale leading L.A. in another close pennant race. Los Angeles won the 1966 pennant on the final day of the regular season. The Dodgers in 1978 would become the first MLB franchise to surpass the three-million mark in home attendance.
