List Rules Please only rank the players based on their time with the Dodgers

This is a list of the greatest Los Angeles Dodgers ever. Since they moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1958, the Dodgers have been one of the most successful Major League teams. Despite an array of talent and teams that featured some of the best players of all time, the Dodgers won only one championship during its nearly 70 years in Brooklyn. The team made up for lost time and has won five championships since it moved west.

Besides being known as the most important player in Major League history when he broke the color barrier in 1947, Jackie Robinson is one of the best Dodgers players ever. Outside of his off the field achievements, Robinson was a six-time All Star who played in six World Series and was a key contributor to the 1955 championship squad. Robinson was a rare talent who combined good instincts at the plate with speed and outstanding fielding. When he retired in 1956 after 10 seasons in Dodger Blue, Robinson was considered one of the greatest Dodgers of all time.

Sandy Koufax is one of the greatest players of the Dodgers' Los Angeles period. Koufax is one of the best pitchers in baseball history. Koufax was the first major leaguer to pitch four no-hitters (including the eighth perfect game in baseball history). Despite his comparatively short career, Koufax's 2,396 career strikeouts ranked 7th in history as of his retirement, trailing only Warren Spahn (2,583) among left-handers. He was the first pitcher to win three Cy Young Awards despite retiring due to arm problems at the age of 29.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are one of baseball's storied teams. This list of the Greatest Dodgers of All Time considers every player from the Dodgers history.
