This morning's Los Angeles Times carries a correction to that Op-Ed piece from last week that stated the LA logo on the Dodgers cap sprang from team executives and a Boston designer in the 1950s. "The L.A. Angels of the Pacific League (1903-1957) had a similar logo," acknowledges the For the Record. Not that the central fact was ever really in doubt, but score one for Judge Hahn, whose 1957 letter to Walter O'Malley must have helped settle the question — and points up the value of a good archive.
