Throughout their rich history, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been at the center of several intriguing and unique anecdotes that make for great trivia whenever discussing baseball. On a recent episode of ABC’s ‘Jeopardy!’ one of the featured categories was titled ‘Let’s Go Dodgers!’

The Dodgers reside as one of the most historic franchises in professional sports, with a history that also dates back to the east coast. From Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier to Fernando Valenzuela uniting a Los Angeles community, the Dodgers have stood as one of the more noteworthy and respectable franchises in Major League Baseball.

‘Jeopardy!’ host Alex Tribek has always been rather creative with his delivery and categories, which provided for phenomenal trivia, via Michael S. Wall:

The first question pays respect to Robinson, perhaps the most influential player in baseball history and longtime Brooklyn second baseman. The electric 1942 MVP is remembered for breaking the color barrier in baseball, while also sparking the Dodgers with his extreme athleticism.

The ‘Let’s Go Dodgers!’ category stuck with the Brooklyn theme for the first two questions, tying in the historic Ebbets Field the team called home until the 1957 season. The Dodgers first played at Ebbets Field in 1913, spending 45 seasons there until their relocation to Los Angeles.

Up next was fun a play on words incorporating ‘Duke’ nickname for Edwin Donald ‘Duke’ Snider. The seven-time All-Star captivated while in center field during his 16-year tenure with the Dodgers, earning two World Series trophies and later induction into the Hall of Fame.

The final question on ‘Jeopardy!’ alluded to a current player that is recognized by many as the best pitcher in baseball. Clayton Kershaw has captured three Cy Young Awards, an MVP, and is looking to guide the Dodgers on their path to a first World Series since the 1988 season.
