Dodgers

In 1933, Walter met George V. McLaughlin, president of the Brooklyn Trust Company. It was through George that Walter was brought into the financial arrangements for Ebbets Field in 1940.[2] In 1942, he was appointed the attorney for the Brooklyn Dodgers, and he became the president and chief stockholder (owner) on October 26, 1950. O’Malley assumed the title of president from Branch Rickey, who is considered a trailblazer in baseball both for instituting the farm system and for breaking the racial barrier with Jackie Robinson.[10] George Vincent McLaughlin (May 20, 1887 – December 7, 1967) was President of the Brooklyn Trust Company; New York City Police Commissioner; State Superintendent of Banks; and Vice Chairman of the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority. ...

After the ownership transfer, the Dodgers remained successful under O'Malley: they won the National League pennants in 1952, 1953, 1955, and 1956. In 1955, the team won the World Series for the first time in their history. Attendance declined from a peak of 1.7 million in 1946 and 1947 to just over one-million per year in the mid 1950s. O'Malley tried to raise money and get the political backing to build a new ballpark elsewhere in Brooklyn. The one person whose backing he needed was Robert Moses. Moses influenced development in New York through the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority. O'Malley had wanted to build a new Brooklyn Dodger stadium at Flatbush and Atlantic Avenue, but Moses wanted the Dodgers to move to Queens and play in Flushing Meadows Park, which is the stadium where the New York Mets play today.

Move to Los Angeles

Following the 1957 Major League Baseball season, he moved the Dodgers to Los Angeles. Also, he was influential in getting the rival New York Giants to move west to become the San Francisco Giants. He needed another team to go with him, for had he moved out west alone, The St. Louis Cardinals - 1,600 mi (2,575.0 km) away -[12][13] would have been the closest National League team if the Giants had not also moved west. O'Malley met with Giants owner Horace Stoneham - who was considering moving the Giants to Minnesota - and convinced Stoneham to join him on the west coast at the end of the '57 campaign. The moves broke the hearts of New York's fans but ultimately were successful for both franchises - and for Major League Baseball as a whole. In the years following the move of the New York clubs, Major League Baseball expanded to include three other California based teams, two in Texas, Minnesota, Colorado, Arizona and Seattle. O'Malley was given 352 acres (1.42 km²) in Chavez Ravine by the Los Angeles city government and built the 56,000 capacity Dodger Stadium for $12 million. The Dodgers temporarily took up residence in the Los Angeles Coliseum, while they awaited the completion of Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers were soon drawing more than two-million fans a year. They remained successful on the field as well, winning the World Series in 1959, 1963, and 1965.

Just before the St. Louis Cardinals began a series of games against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, in 1963, the Los Angeles Times published a large cartoon, drawn by artist Pete Bentovoja, modeled on the movies about the German submarine captain. The captain is Cards' manager Johnny Keane; his "lieutenant" is Stan Musial. They wear Cardinal uniforms with naval officers' caps bearing the "St.L" emblem. While Keane and Musial are speaking, other crew members load bats, like torpedoes, into torpedo tubes; the bats have players' faces (and names and batting averages) drawn on them. Keane looks through the periscope; the inset shows a battleship with a large head of O'Malley, wearing a naval officers cap bearing the "LA" emblem and puffing a cigar. Keane: "Achtung Shtan [Stan]! I zought ve sunk sem last year?" Musial: "Yavohl, Mein Kommander, Ve vill blast zem vit bigger und better torpedoes zis zeazon!"
