The great Henry Aaron, one of baseball's all-time hitters, awaits a pitch at Holman Stadium at Dodgertown. Aaron made his first Spring Training appearance at Dodgertown in 1958 as a member of the Milwaukee Braves. The Dodger catcher is Jeff Torborg. The photograph was taken by Nobuhisa Ikuhara, brother of Ike Ikuhara, a longtime prominent Dodger official.
The Spring Training site for the Dodgers was called "Dodgertown" and towns need street signs. In the very earliest years at Dodgertown, Vero Beach businessman Bud Holman puts up a sign to highlight "Branch Rickey Boulevard" as its namesake, Dodger President Branch Rickey, looks on. Dodgertown Camp Director Charlie Blaney brought back the idea to honor Dodger Hall of Fame players with street signs and the tradition is upheld to this day. (L-R) Dodgertown Camp Director Spencer Harris; Vero Beach businessman Bud Holman, Dodger President Branch Rickey.
Tom Lasorda proudly holds up the tombstone given to him by Dodger President Walter O'Malley during the 1972 Spring Training. Lasorda at that time was the Dodgers' Triple-A manager at Albuquerque, New Mexico, but had said for years he wanted his tombstone to contain the Dodger schedule so that anyone visiting him could see if the Dodgers were playing in Los Angeles. The tombstone read, "Dodger Stadium was his address, but every ballpark was his home." At the bottom of the marker, alongside the red heart is one drop of the blue blood that Lasorda claimed to possess.

Los Angeles Dodger Manager Walter Alston has hooked a fish on his fishing pole as wife Lela looks on by the heart-shaped lake at Dodgertown. Alston won four World Championships as Manager of the Dodgers in 1955, 1959, 1963, and 1965. Dodger President Walter O'Malley designed the heart-shaped lake as a tribute to his wife Kay and stocked the lake with fish so his players could enjoy some relaxation after a day of Spring Training drills.
Baseball's greatest strikeout pitcher Nolan Ryan is on the left and maybe the greatest pitcher in baseball history, Sandy Koufax, is on the right as the two meet in Dodgertown in 1980. Ryan won 324 games, threw seven no-hitters and struck out 5,714 hitters in a 27-season career. Koufax won the Cy Young Award in 1963, 1965, and 1966 (when there was just one award), pitched four no-hitters and pitched for three Dodger World Championship teams in 1959, 1963 and 1965.
Don Sutton, the winningest pitcher in Dodger history, holds a 1980 promotional poster at Dodgertown. When Sutton's career ended after the 1988 season, he held Dodger career records in wins (233), games started (533), strikeouts (2,696), innings (3,814), shutouts (52) and games pitched (550).
The 1977 Los Angeles Dodgers posed a formidable lineup and they would swing their bats well enough to win the National League Championship. From L-R are: second baseman Davey Lopes; shortstop Bill Russell; first baseman Steve Garvey; leftfielder Dusty Baker; centerfielder Rick Monday; rightfielder Reggie Smith; third baseman Ron Cey; catcher Steve Yeager. All eight players in the photo would play for the 1981 World Championship Dodger team.
It was not all baseball drills at Dodgertown in Spring Training as Manager Tom Lasorda uses a hula hoop instead of calisthenics to get his players loose. From L-R are Pitcher Rick Sutcliffe; Unidentified; Pitcher Charlie Hough; Pitcher Bob Welch; First baseman Steve Garvey.
Dodger catching great Roy Campanella is photographed at the area known as "Campy's Bullpen" on the Dodgertown base. After a long day of Spring Training and then dinner in Dodgertown, Campanella would take a seat near the Dodgertown kitchen and enjoyed talking to the chefs and everyone who would come by. Dodger President Walter O'Malley decreed the corner would be named "Campy's Bullpen" and the name is still there today.
Life at Historic Dodgertown

A group of fishermen must have had a good day fishing at Dodgertown as Dodger players Roy Campanella and Joe Black see the day's catch held by legendary photographers Scharfman and Stein.
(L-R) Kay O'Malley; Walter O'Malley; George Jessel. Actor and comedian George Jessel, "The Toastmaster General" is with Kay and Walter O'Malley as they watch a Dodger Spring Training game at Holman Stadium. The O'Malleys often would watch the game from a golf cart at the top of the stadium seating area.
(L-R) Sandy Koufax; Vin Scully; Tom Lasorda. These three Dodgers are all in the National Baseball Hall of Fame: Koufax for being baseball's greatest pitcher, Scully for being sports' greatest broadcaster and a manager who wins World Championships in 1981 and 1988.
Members of the Dodgertown Camp for Boys pose for their camp picture at Dodgertown in 1954, the first year of the annual summer camp. Camp counselor Peter O'Malley is in the third row, fourth person from the left.
Carl Erskine demonstrates a batting stance for the arrival of this year's group for the Dodgertown Camp for Boys. Erskine was the starting pitcher for the first game at Holman Stadium in 1953 and the Los Angeles Dodgers' first game at the Coliseum in 1958. The Dodgertown Camp for Boys began in 1954 to provide a summer camp atmosphere at Dodgertown and ran until 1962. Also in the photo are Walter O'Malley, third from left; Bud Holman, second from left and Peter O'Malley, far right.
The 1967 Spring Training season has the familiar Vero Beach sign announcing the city as the "Winter Home of the Los Angeles Dodgers and affiliated teams." The sign was a perennial fixture in Vero Beach to welcome the Dodger players, staff, and fans to Vero Beach for another Spring Training. (Photo by Nobuhisa Ikuhara, brother of Dodger official Ike Ikuhara).
As a practical joke, protest signs are made concerning the demolition of the Naval barracks at Dodgertown. The barracks served as the Spartan rooming quarters for hundreds of players and staff on the Spring Training base. By the early 1970s, the Dodgers would begin a modernization program for sleeping arrangements and a mock protest was staged supporting the old dormitories.
Hundreds of players loosen up for the Spring Training day's workouts at Dodgertown, Vero Beach, Florida. Dodger Scouting Director Al Campanis demonstrated the exercise on a platform to be seen by everyone as these players warmed up at what is still known as Field No. 1.
An example of a typical room of the former Naval barracks that served as lodging for players on the Dodgertown Spring Training base. The barracks that once served military personnel in World War II supplied the basic room needs for the hundreds of players that prepared for the upcoming baseball season.
Dodger minor league players gather in the lounge to socialize and unwind from a day of workouts and drills in Dodgertown in preparation for the baseball season.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all prepared in the kitchens on the Dodgertown base for the hundreds of players and staff as they prepared for the baseball season in Spring Training.
Players and staff ate breakfast, lunch and dinner together in the Dodgertown dining room. Dodgertown opened in 1948 as the only integrated Florida Spring Training camp in baseball where players roomed and dined together as a team in the same living quarters. No other Florida Spring Training camp encompassed all players to live and eat together until the 1962 Spring Training season.
Dodger players take batting practice under Florida skies as they face "Iron Mike" pitching machines. The machines could deliver the pitches at a speed in a close approximation to a human pitcher. A player could get as much hitting as he wanted in Spring Training without wearing out live pitching arms.
A Dodger team instructor provides guidance for base runners to get "leads" (taking a lead) off first base and "breaks" (the crossover first step) in attempting to steal a base. Two players were used at the same time in the drill to provide more instruction to players and simulate game action as nearly as possible.
Not all the instruction could be done on the playing fields at Dodgertown. Players regularly gathered for lectures by Dodger instructors on all aspects of the game in pitching, hitting, fielding, throwing, and base running. If inclement weather prevented a workout, the day would not be wasted and the players could receive instruction in the playing rules or any part of the game where they chose to ask questions.
Dodger instructor Al Campanis, later to be scouting director and general manager of the Dodgers, conducts an infield lecture in the gym at Dodgertown. On the chalkboard were the topics he covered in the discussion that included knowledge of the hitter, the infielder's stance, anticipation, and watching the bat of the hitter.
Players gather in small groups on Field No. 1 at Dodgertown as part of the day's schedule and drills. To maximize learning, the players were assigned to different areas and instructors to receive specialized knowledge in all areas of the game. On the far right is the entrance to the area of the Dodgertown swimming pool.
Future Hall of Fame catcher Roy Campanella (standing far left) gathers with young Dodger pitchers and a Dodger pitching instructor as they review the proper placement of a pitcher's foot on the rubber. Campanella knew very well the value of the relationship of a catcher and a pitcher. After his playing career ended, Campanella was a key mentor to develop Dodger catchers such as John Roseboro, Steve Yeager, Mike Scioscia, and Mike Piazza.
A Dodger minor league pitcher has the concept of the "pitching strings" area explained to him by a Dodger instructor. The strings area at Dodgertown allowed as many as six pitchers to warm up at the same time and the idea was later adopted throughout baseball Spring Training sites. The pitcher warming up could see a physical dimension to a hitter's strike zone. The string strike zone was sturdy enough to present the strike zone, but had sufficient flexibility that a pitch would brush by the strings and allow the catcher to receive the pitch.
Dodger catcher Bruce Edwards lays his catcher's glove to the side in order to receive mail at the Dodgertown "Post Office." Hundreds of players and staff could send and receive mail in Spring Training through Dodgertown and the location had its own Dodgertown postmark.
Don Sutton, the all-time winningest Dodger pitcher in the team's history, meets with the print and electronic media in the Dodgertown lounge in 1980. Sutton won more games (233), pitched more shutouts (52), started more games (533), struck out more hitters (2,696) and pitched more innings (3,814) than any Dodger ever.
