Another interesting fact from Dodger history is that in 1977 (before the steroid & HGH era) they became the first team ever to have 4 guys hit 30 or more HRs in a single season. (Dusty Baker, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey & Reggie Smith)

Lol. Apparently 20% of Koreans are named Kim. Add Park and Lee and you're up to 45%.

Other fun things would've been Eric Gagne's saves streak, the Rookie of the Year streak, and question to which the answers are, respectively, Chavez Ravine, Walter Alston, Duke Snider.
