The fields at Dodgertown are hallowed ground for future Hall of Famers and heaven for fans wanting to meet today's baseball greats and tomorrow's rising stars. The location is Vero Beach, Florida, the spring training home of the Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers since 1948. The Dodgers first set up camp at the invitation of a local businessman, Bud Holman, after the city needed a tenant to occupy a former World War II naval air station. The camp is the most unique baseball training facility in the country, a destination for international baseball visitors, and it shares a special relationship with the community of Vero Beach.
