One Step Away; Dodgers in Chicago to Begin NLCS

The Dodgers haven't played in the World Series since winning it all in 1988, but they are now four wins away after finishing off the Washington Nationals in five games in their NL Division Series.

And then there are the Cubs, the team with the best record in baseball during the regular season (103-58) and fresh off a 3-1 NLDS victory over the San Francisco Giants. The North Side hasn't been home to a World Series winner since 1908 or a World Series participant since 1945.

Los Angeles has made the postseason nine times since Kirk Gibson and Orel Hershiser led them to the title in 1988, but has not returned to the World Series. The Dodgers were on the October stage the previous three years only to bow out in the NLDS in 2015 and '14 and the NLCS in '13.

Now, they're in position to get back to the biggest stage in the sport, and they're going into Chicago as underdogs.

The Los Angeles Sports Council is a non-profit civic organization whose primary purpose is to promote economic development through sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area.

On behalf of the community, the Sports Council bids against other cities for the right to host major sporting events, often staging or helping to stage events after successful bids.

Founded in 1988, the Sports Council's efforts represent more than $1 billion in overall economic impact for the region and range from NCAA Championships to the Super Bowl, and from the U.S Olympic Trials to the World Cup.

The Council also works in support of each of the area's established sports teams and facilities.
