The Dodgers have won a record 25 NL pennants, half since leaving Brooklyn for Los Angeles after the 1957 season, but are seventh in World Series titles behind the New York Yankees (27), St. Louis Cardinals (11), Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia/Oakland Athletics (nine apiece) and New York/San Francisco Giants (eight).
Edwards is a famous courtroom artist who has been working in Los Angeles for over two decades. Her illustrations include high profile trials such as Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson, the Menendez brothers, and more light-hearted news like fashion shows. She began her career as a fashion illustrator, and having an interest in news, began using her illustration skills in the courtroom.
