    National League Championship Series

    The Dodgers faced the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1985 NLCS, the first year the championship series was in a "Best of seven" format. Jack Clark hit a 450 foot home run off Dodger closer Tom Niedenfuer to win game six and the NLCS for the Cardinals. With an open base, Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda was second guessed for not walking Clark, the only big power threat in the Cardinal line-up. Niedenfuer also gave up a walk-off home run to Ozzie Smith in game five contributing to Smith winning the NLCS MVP Award.

    Major League Baseball Draft

    The Dodgers drafted 37 players in the June draft and 16 in the January draft. Of those, six players would eventually play in the Major Leagues. They received an extra pick in the 2nd round of the June draft as compensation for losing pitcher Burt Hooton as a free agent.

    The first pick in the June draft was outfielder Chris Gwynn from San Diego State. The brother of Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, he would play 10 seasons in the Majors (7 of them with the Dodgers), primarily as a pinch hitter/backup outfielder. He hit .261 in 599 Major League games. The draft also included outfielder Mike Devereaux (round 5), who was briefly a starter with the Baltimore Orioles in the early 90s but was primarily a reserve, and relief pitcher John Wetteland (2nd round of the January secondary draft) who saved 330 games in 12 seasons (with the Dodgers, Expos, Yankees and Rangers).
