Dodgertown, which for decades was the spring training home for the Dodgers (both the Brooklyn and Los Angeles versions), got some long-overdue recognition Monday when it became an official Florida Heritage Landmark. The historical marker was unveiled during a ceremony at noon in front of the conference center.
Several Dodger greats, including Tommy Davis and Steve Garvey, were in attendance. As was longtime manager Tommy Lasorda (left in photo, with former team owner Peter O’Malley).
O’Malley praised Ruth Stanbridge, a former county commissioner, for her efforts to get the designation approved at the state level.
The complex is now known as Historic Dodgertown and is a venue for a variety of youth sports.
