The Los Angeles Dodgers 2017 season was a special one. In the illustrious words of broadcaster Joe Davis, it provided fans with moment after moment, memory after memory.
The Dodgers won 104 games, which is the most for the franchise since moving to Los Angeles in 1958. Additionally, they advanced to their first World Series since 1988 after disposing of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League Division Series and Chicago Cubs in the NL Championship Series.
Ultimately, the Dodgers fell short of their goal, as they were defeated by the Houston Astros in the World Series in a back-and-forth, action-packed seven-game series.
While they did not win the World Series, the 2017 season still provided fans with plenty of spectacular moments and games. The Dodgers recently released a video recapping all those great moments, in addition to Justin Turner, Joc Pederson and Dave Roberts wishing the fans happy holidays.
Turner and Pederson both did their part in the postseason run, as Turner hit a walk-off home run in Game 2 of the NLCS off Cubs pitcher John Lackey. The walk-off home run was the second in Dodgers postseason history, with the other, of course, being Kirk Gibson’s in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series.
Pederson led the team with three home runs in the World Series, including a crucial one in Game 6 that helped keep Los Angeles alive to force a Game 7.
With the winter flying by, the Dodgers pitchers and catchers are set to report to Spring Training on Feb. 13, so the 2018 season is just around the corner.
