It’s been 32 years since Dodgers fans could celebrate a World Series victory — so long that Kirk Gibson’s iconic walk-off homer in 1988 seems like ancient history.

Finally, fans can embrace new memories — clutch performances from Mookie Betts, Julio Urías
and Corey Seager, and a postseason of redemption for Clayton Kershaw.

It’s been a long time coming, and despite COVID-driven restrictions, fans found ways to observe the team’s 2020 championship after Tuesday’s 3-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 6. While a few thousand baseball-starved fans flew to Arlington, Texas, to watch the game at Globe Life Stadium and celebrate the win, many more fans throughout the city basked in the victory — from East L.A. to Highland Park to the Dodger Stadium parking lot.

With the Dodgers’ victory and the Lakers winning the NBA title a few weeks ago — repeating a feat that last occurred in 1988 — Los Angeles is once again the city of champions.
