When you say the team name “Los Angeles Dodgers” there is a great sense of familiarity with the term. The team is as much a part of the city as the city is with the team.
However, how would it have sounded if they had been the “El Monte Dodgers”? Could you say the “Torrance Dodgers” just as easily? The “Downey Dodgers” are alliterative, but would have you gotten used to saying it?
