Story: 
Valenzuela made the Dodgers the team of a community that once viewed the franchise with great suspicion! Sheriff’s deputies literally dragged Mexican Americans out of their Chavez Ravine homes to clear the land on which Dodger Stadium was later built. On Feb. 18, 1960, the then-Los Angeles Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley finalized the purchase of land that would be used for the construction of Dodger Stadium. O'Malley paid a reported $494,000 for the property at Chavez Ravine, which was believed to be worth $92,000 at the time. The efforts to repossess the land prior to the deal even being completed, lasted approximately ten years (1951–1961), eventually resulting in the removal of the entire population of Chavez Ravine.

He was a symbol of hope and courage throughout this MLB career, bringing Mexican fans back not to support the Dodgers but Valenzuela. The best part about it all is Valenzuela could actually pitch. Valenzuela was discovered in 1977 by scout Corito Varona while playing in the Mexican League. Valenzuela’s first start for the Dodgers in April of 1981 was a shutout win against the Houston Astros — a moment that marked the start of “Fernandomania.”. He became the first, and to date, the only player to win both Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards in the same season, while leading the Dodgers to the World Series title. El Toro was 99-68 with a 2.94 earned-run average, 84 complete games, and 24 shutouts. Fernando Valenzuela’s lasting impact on baseball makes him a historic pitcher but his symbolism in the Mexican and LA communities makes him well beyond worthy of his legendary status.
