Before the Rams arrived from Cleveland in 1946, Pacific Coast League baseball, college football, boxing and horse racing were the sports staples in Los Angeles. In 1926, Bill Lane moved his Salt Lake City Bees to Los Angeles, and the team became the Hollywood Stars, who in those early days were also called the Sheiks.
