    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dodgers manager Dave Roberts ended a pregame ceremony honoring broadcaster Vin Scully by running the crowd through a chorus of Scully’s famous line, “It’s time for Dodgers baseball.” Scully, who called Dodgers games for 67 years and retired in 2016, died on Tuesday at age 94. Behind a beautiful blue sky, there was a moment of silence at Dodger Stadium on Friday for the lovable Scully, followed by a video narrated by Dodgers broadcaster Charley Steiner and accompanied by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole’s memorable version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” Scully once described a beautiful night as “a cotton candy sky with a canopy of blue.” He was the soundtrack of baseball games for generations of Dodgers fans and a masterful storyteller. Roberts said Scully wouldn’t have liked all the attention. “Vin, as he’s looking down on us right now, well, he hated the spotlight on him,” Roberts said. “Well, this is going to be a very uncomfortable moment right now but he deserves it. Vin was a man of character and integrity and class, a...
    You may have heard that the MLB All-Star game is coming to Dodger Stadium on Tuesday, bringing with it the customary traffic snarls and parking madness. What you may not know is that there will be MLB-related events in downtown L.A. as well on Saturday through Tuesday, resulting in street closures and “soft closures” around the Los Angeles Convention Center. More festivities — free ones, in fact — are scheduled for the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday and Sunday too. Here’s a quick guide to the planned disruptions in the flow of traffic, as well as some facts about travel to and from the All-Star events.Downtown street closures In anticipation of the throngs of baseball fans descending on downtown, the city closed all or part of four streets near the Convention Center through Tuesday.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Former Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez officially announced his retirement from baseball on Saturday. Though he hasn’t suited up in the MLB since 2018, Gonzalez, 39-years-old, made the news official via his Instagram account today.

Toby, a baseball-loving beagle, was given the VIP – Very Important Pup – treatment at Dodger Stadium recently after a package sent by the team never reached him.

    Los Angeles Dodgers fans haven’t portrayed themselves in the best manner this season, with crowd fights becoming a regular occurrence. Friday night, one person leveled up on the idea of bad or rowdy fan behavior, by flailing his fists in every direction hoping to connect with a police officer or security.

But thanks to the 107 wins notched by the San Francisco Giants, the West Coast teams were stuck in a tight divisional race up until the last game of the season. The Dodgers were trailing the Milwaukee Brewers early in their Friday night contest 5-1, in what was a must win game to keep pace with the Giants. Ultimately, the Dodgers came out on top, but enjoying the victory wasn’t enough for one fan, who still saw his team struggling to pass their...

    Former Los Angeles Dodger is back at his old stomping grounds as a member of the Atlanta Braves, and he hit a bomb off Walker Buehler to open up the scoring. An NLCS rematch — and potential NL postseason preview — between the Braves and Dodgers has taken centerstage at the beginning of the week. Joc Pederson has played on both sides of this budding rivalry, and now takes his swings in an Atlanta uniform after a brief stop-off in Chicago. The Dodgers overcame a 3-1 deficit at the hands of the Braves to win the NL Pennant on their way to a World Series.

    Fernando Tatis, Jr. hits a solo shot off Clayton Kershaw, his third of the season so far. Tatis, Jr. can send a baseball a long way, and he gave this one a Greyhound ticket out of Dodger Stadium, perhaps back to San Diego. Who knows? The options are endless when you’re not spending time at a baseball game. The young slugger was signed to a monstrous 14-year contract before the start of the regular season, only to suffer a major injury just a few games in. Thankfully, he was able to avoid surgery, assuming he doesn’t over-swing, which is what got him in trouble in the first place. Tatis, Jr. doesn’t have to over-swing to destroy this baseball.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Outside of Dodger Stadium, fans are leaving flowers and other mementos to remember Tommy Lasorda, the 93-year-old former Los Angeles Dodgers Hall of Fame Manager who died on Thursday. Local artist Ric Rodriguez, who met Lasorda five years ago when he wanted to show the baseball great a portrait he painted of him, described Lasorda as one of a kind. “He really captured your attention and I think that was a gift that he gave to a lot of people,” said fan Rick Rodriguez. “I did think of Tommy seeing (the painting), it gave me chills to think that this iconic figure that I’ve built up so much in my head from when I was a little kid back in ’88 was going to grace it with his autograph.” He said Lasorda asked him to paint another portrait of him, and the two built a friendship. “I got to connect with him and talk with him and talk baseball, talk life,” Rodriguez said.

    Tommy Lasorda loved the game of baseball more than anything. If it was somehow possible, he loved the Dodgers even more. Lasorda lived his life wrapped in Dodger Blue, and when he took his last breath Thursday night at the age of 93 my guess is he was still certain of one thing “If you don’t love the Dodgers,’’ Lasorda liked to say, “there’s a good chance you may not get into Heaven.’’ Under that set of qualifications, Lasorda is already there. No need to present his credentials at the Pearly Gates, even if he didn’t show up in his gleaming white uniform with Dodgers scrawled in blue on the front and a big No. 2 on the back. He lived long enough to see the Dodgers break the drought of his lifetime and win the team’s first World Series since he, Kirk Gibson and Orel Hershiser gave them the most improbable one 32 years earlier. His last wish was to see the Dodgers finally win again and, though frail, he traveled to Texas in October to see it...
    Fact check: Donald Trump Jr.s claim about flu deaths, data manipulation is false ‘Everybody Knows Joe’: I Ate at Biden’s Favorite Hometown Restaurants How the World Series champion Dodgers incorporated fans during the 2020 season Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Major League Baseball -- along with the rest of the sports world -- was forced to look for new ways to reinvent the fan experience as the abbreviated regular season took place in empty ballparks all across the country. While there were a number of fans allowed at the NLCS and World Series at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, many of the 2020 World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers fans were limited to cheering on their club from their homes. It's an incredibly unfortunate situation, any and every way you look at it. © Provided by CBS Sports "This victory is for our fans, thank you Dodger fans everywhere," Mark Walter, head of the Dodgers ownership group that includes Magic Johnson and Billie Jean King, said after Game 6.

    When the ball leaves the bat at Dodger Stadium, a hitter doesn’t need to peek at how the outfielders have reacted to know if the ball has a chance to reach the bleachers. Oakland A’s shortstop Marcus Semien said data that appears instantly on the scoreboard gives players an immediate idea of whether or not they’ve hit a home run. “The thing I like about this place is when you hit a ball you can see the exit velocity on the scoreboard,” Semien said Tuesday. “When it’s as hot as it is here during the day, you know when the ball is hit over 102 (miles per hour) and the angle is 25 to 30, it’s probably going to go out. (Matt) Olson hit his 109 with a 40 (degree launch angle) and you just think about would that have gone out at our place? But we’re here at Dodger Stadium. You know if you barrel up a ball in the air, it’s got a chance.” The A’s and Houston Astros combined to hit six home runs...
    Dodgers fans are upset with the Houston Astros, and they have every right to be The Dodgers welcome the Houston Astros to town this weekend for the first time since the 2017 World Series sign-stealing scandal was brought to light. While fans cannot attend the series at Dodger Stadium, they’re still coming up with responsible, socially-distant ways to get back at Houston for essentially cheating their way to a World Series title. Not only will one Dodgers fan fly a banner above the stadium on Saturday and Sunday, Astros haters are welcoming the road team to the stadium with signs and verbal abuse.

    The fans behind home plate at Dodger Stadium were fake, and so were the cheers in the nation’s capital. The games themselves seemed real enough, assuming you weren’t looking too closely. And Nationals star Juan Soto’s positive test for coronavirus was all too real. Baseball got the opening day many thought might never come this year, though it wasn’t exactly time to celebrate. Soto’s last-minute absence Thursday as the defending champions opened play at home was a grim reminder — as if any were needed — that the virus will overshadow anything that happens on the field this season. Watching from a distance, you might wonder why they were even trying. While the baseball was decent enough it’s hard to imagine anyone missing the game so much that they’ll find this version of it compelling over a 60-game season. If there was a feel, it was artificial, like the Xbox had been accidentally activated and a video game was on the big screen at home. Even the intense storm that ended play in the sixth inning in Washington seemed like...
    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Micah Johnson played pro baseball for six years, including a brief stint with the Dodgers.Now he's moved on to a new career, and doesn't regret trading a bat for a brush, and cowhide for a canvas."Art is so different from baseball because baseball is so specific to what you need to do to get to that level," said Johnson. "With art it's the complete opposite."When Johnson was a new player at 2016 spring training, manager Dave Roberts asked him to tell the team his hobbies outside of baseball. Micah didn't want to say piano for fear he'd have to play in front of the team.'So what I did was, I said I like paint. There's no way he's gonna make me paint!" said Johnson.

    The big sports news from Los Angeles this week — other than the sensational outfield play of clubhouse attendant Francisco “Chico” Herrera — was that the Dodgers will join some other teams and sell fan cutouts to fill seats at Dodger Stadium. Which, of course, immediately brought up the question: Will they be like real Dodger fans and leave after the seventh inning? Not that it really matters. Like Chico, the cardboard cutouts are just one more reminder that everything is not as you think you see it in Major League Baseball. Still, as we edge toward the first midsummer opening day in baseball history, we’ve seen enough in what MLB euphemistically calls summer camp to come to this conclusion: A season like no other is really no season at all. Cardboard cutouts in the stands. Players you struggle to name shuffling on and off the field. Rules that appear to have been made up in some fantasy geek convention. And, worst of all, 60 measly games to decide things — assuming a miracle happens and the season actually goes...
