The Los Angeles Dodgers came together as a team and defeated the Tampa Bay Rays, 3-1, at Globe Life Field in Arlington Texas, to capture the MLB 2020 World Series. Due to the pandemic, this was a short and strange season. There were only 13,000 fans cheering them on and 80% of them were Dodger fans.
Los Angeles Dodgers lifted the Commissioner’s Trophy after a long three decades consisting of 32 years. “We worked so hard man,” said a happy Dodgers catcher Austin Barnes. “We got our heart broken so many times. This group worked so hard.”

Although Tampa Bay led, 1-0, Rays’ manager , Kevin Cash, replaced ace starter Black Snell, with Nick Anderson, to protect their lead. However, Dodgers, Mookie Betts momentum shifting double sparked a two run rally and put them on the top. Betts said, “I’m not exactly sure why Snell was removed. I’m not going to ask any questions but he was pitching a great game.”
Corey Seager was deservingly named World Series MVP as Los Angeles Dodgers captured their first title since 1988. Seager, was also named the NLCS MVP winner as well. A case can also be made for Clayton Kershaw for being co- MVP winner.
The Los Angeles Dodgers celebrated their title on the Globe Life Field, the home of the Texas Rangers, instead of Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California, where game 6 should have been played. It was a hard earned title and their fans celebrated the Los Angeles Dodgers victory in the streets of Los Angeles.
