Peter O’Malley, former President, Los Angeles Dodgers 1970-98, was one of seven speakers at the Los Angeles Coliseum Commission’s bronze plaque dedication ceremonies for Walter F. O’Malley in the “Coliseum Court of Honor.” O’Malley recalled that his Dad made the decision to come to Los Angeles in Fall 1957 without knowing where the Dodgers would play just months from the date. The best option turned out to be at the Coliseum, where the Coliseum Commission of 50 years ago made that possible, despite three existing football tenants and other regularly scheduled events. O’Malley also noted that the Coliseum served as a family gathering place for the initial years in Los Angeles, as they attended every home game.
