We asked Dodger fans a simple question “who was the first person to make you a Dodger fan”. Whether it was family or players themselves, our Twitter and email inbox was blown up with amazing answers!
My grandfather and my mother. My grandfather lived in north hollywood when the dodgers, who he was already a fan of, moved to los angeles. He loved Koufax.
He made my mom a die hard fan who then loved Ron Cey.
They made me die hard with watching the ’88 WS as a 5yo kid. pic.twitter.com/O6O0bN0Rf3

My Dad. He took us to games all the time. When it was $12.00 for field level seats. We bleed blue. pic.twitter.com/iPoBSvftH9

$12!! incredible. (Editor’s note: I remember them days.) This next user on Twitter had one of the coolest stories on how she became a fan.
My grandpa did! He played in the 1947 World Series on the Brooklyn Dodgers. He’s known for his famous “catch.” So I grew up always hearing about that and all his other baseball endeavors. Being a Dodger fan is just in my blood???????? pic.twitter.com/hSiygM9aKj
