The Ogden Dodgers were a Minor League Baseball team that played in the Pioneer Baseball League from 1966 to 1973. Future Baseball Hall of Fame Manager Tommy Lasorda managed the team from 1966-1968.[1]

History

The Dodgers started in 1966 when the Pocatello Chiefs moved to Ogden and changed their name. They won the Pioneer League championship their first four seasons in existence from 1966 to 1969.

When the club lost its Dodgers affiliation after the 1973 season, they spent one season as the Ogden Spikers, a co-op team that featured players from six different Major League organizations.

In 1974, the team moved to Canada and became the Lethbridge Expos.
