    (CNN)"When Jackie Robinson stepped on the field as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers, for us Black folk, it was our Neil Armstrong landing on the moon," said Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City.Now, 75 years after Robinson broke Major League Baseball's color barrier, the Los Angeles Dodgers left their spikes at the ballpark to walk in his footsteps.A group of Dodgers players and coaches toured the museum, which Kendrick called a civil rights and justice institution seen through the lens of baseball. Robinson would use his fame and prestige to become a civil rights activist."It's emotional. It's exciting," said Dave Roberts, manager of the Dodgers.Roberts thinks young major league players understand the monumental achievements of Negro Leaguers integrating under harsh circumstances. "It's sinking in," Roberts told CNN's Fredricka Whitfield Saturday. "I think as we go forward, really that appreciation of our history and how that came to be is so important."Read MoreRoberts is one of only two Black managers in Major League Baseball along with Dusty Baker of the Houston Astros. Roberts is...
    Vin Scully, the voice of the Los Angeles Dodgers for 67 years, died on Tuesday as the organization honored his memory Baseball has lost its voice. Vin Scully, who brought Dodgers broadcasts to life for 67 years, died on Tuesday at the age of 94. Scully didn’t just narrate baseball history. He was baseball history. When Scully first worked Dodgers Spring Training in 1950, he called games featuring Connie Mack (born in 1862 during the Civil War), who was still the manager of the Athletics. Scully did games with Dutch Leonard (born 1909) and Julio Urias (born 1996). His influence spanned generations. For many baseball fans, he was the voice behind the game’s iconic moments. When you heard Scully’s voice, you could picture Clayton Kershaw unleashing a breaking ball. But you could also see Kirk Gibson pumping his fist, the ball slipping through the glove of Bill Buckner, Sandy Koufax letting go of his blazing fastball, Yogi Berra jumping in the arms of Don Larsen, and Jackie Robinson racing home. When he first began working for the Dodgers, Hank Aaron,...
    Two books on Los Angeles baseball — one on the Dodgers’ World Series season, one on the electricity of Shohei Ohtani — give L.A. fans much to ponder. It would be overstating things to say that baseball is in a state of emergency, though it has been  in a bit of an extended identity crisis for a while. With teams embracing a number of new methodologies both on and off the field while popular interest in the sport wanes, there is reason to wonder how much correlation there is between these two trends. What does it take for teams to succeed today? Has efficiency outpaced enjoyability? And yet on an individual level, there are still players whose own athleticism and talent renders such questions irrelevant. Two new books explore different elements of the modern game. Pedro Moura’s “How to Beat a Broken Game” focuses on one of baseball’s premier teams and many of the problems facing the MLB, while Jeff Fletcher’s “Sho-Time” is a biography of the game’s most unique, and perhaps brightest star, Shohei Ohtani.Did the Los Angeles Dodgers...
    DENVER, CO – APRIL 10: Justin Bruihl #63 of the Los Angeles Dodgers pitches against the Colorado Rockies during a game at Coors Field on April 10, 2022 in Denver, Colorado. (Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty Images) Which members of the Los Angeles Dodgers won’t be on the active roster on May 1? Due to a shortened Spring Training, Major League Baseball teams were allowed to have 28-man rosters to get them through the unpredictability of the first month of the season. On May 1, the roster sizes will be reduced to 26. Like most teams, the Dodgers used the expanded roster space to stock up on pitching due to the reduced time warming up in the spring. The Dodgers added 16 pitchers to their roster. Once the club determines who they want to keep on the active roster, they will still have some questions going forward as the status of starting pitcher Trevor Bauer is still unknown. The league still has him on administrative leave through April 22. The Dodgers rotation consists of Clayton Kershaw, Tony Gonsolin, Andrew Heaney, Julio...
    Chicago Cubs Marcus Stroman starts Jackie Robinson Day off strong with a tattoo honoring the late player. Chicago Cubs pitcher Marcus Stroman shared a tattoo he got of Jackie Robinson, one of the most historic players in MLB. Stroman’s tattoo undoubtedly makes his celebration of Jackie Robinson Day the best one of all time. Robinson is the most important part of inclusion of Black players in MLB and Stroman expressed his gratitude for him on Twitter. Beyond thankful and grateful for the legendary life of this man.

    Before Game 1 of the National League Division Series between the 107-win Giants and 106-win Dodgers, I snagged a few moments with Giants general manager Scott Harris on the field at Oracle Park. The 34-year-old Harris — a native of Redwood City — is in his second season as the Giants’ GM and his first with the organization playing games at every level. I wanted to know what he’ll be doing during games, how busy his phone is with long-lost friends looking for tickets, and how the organization is looking top-to-bottom heading into one of the great postseason matchups in baseball history. Harris is a diplomat by nature. He was hired, in part, to be a face of the franchise. He’s too savvy to dig himself or anyone else any holes. You might pick up some of that spin in his answers. But when it comes to the stuff he really enjoys and can speak candidly about — the nitty-gritty of running a baseball team — and he lights up and will gladly talk for hours....
    Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer will miss the rest of the season after Major League Baseball and the players' union agreed to extend his administrative leave through the World Series as he stands accused of sexual assault.   A team spokesperson confirmed the news to DailyMail.com. ESPN was the first to report the decision.  Bauer was placed on seven days' paid leave July 2 under the joint domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy adopted by MLB and the players' union after a Southern California woman identified as Ms. Hill said he choked her into unconsciousness, punched her repeatedly and had anal sex with her without her consent during two sexual encounters earlier this year.  Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer will miss the rest of the season after Major League Baseball and the players' union agreed to extend his administrative leave through the World Series as he stands accused of sexual assault Bauer's accuser, identified by her attorneys as 'Ms. Hill,' claimed in her filing that she consented to have sex with Bauer on two occasions, but...
    Let’s start to analize when it will be the possible debut of the Venezuelan Keibert ruiz with the Nationals of Washington in the MLB. The Nationals left their best starting pitcher Max Scherzer and shortstop Trea Turner who went to the Dodgers, in exchange for hosting several players including the Venezuelan catcher. Keibert Ruiz. The citizens of the capital have kept the Creole mask, the best prospect of the Dodgers before the change with the Nationals. Ruiz, who turned 23 in July, is hitting .314 with 21 homers and 59 RBIs in 71 games in his season in the minors. An uncertainty has really been generated about his debut with the Washington big team and that is that until the 2019 season, the month of September was eagerly awaited, which expanded the rosters to 40 players. But as of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they can only be expanded up to 28 players, which will also be valid in this campaign. It could be said that as the main prospect he was for the Dodgers, Ruiz It is...
    Dodger Stadium is already becoming hostile territory for the Houston Astros hours before their game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Once the 2021 scheduled was released, everyone circled the date of Aug. 3. On this day, the Houston Astros make their return to Dodger Stadium for the first time since the sign-stealing scandal came to light. That means they will have to face the venom of the Los Angeles Dodgers fanbase. Hours prior to the game, Dodgers fans began chanting “cheater” at the Astros players during batting practice. In said practice, fans began throwing home run baseballs back onto the field. Dodgers fans are yelling “Cheater” and throwing back home run balls hit by the Astros during batting practice. 100 minutes to game time — Eric Stephen (@ericstephen) August 4, 2021 It’s already gotten dangerous at Dodger Stadium, fans throwing home run balls on the field at the Astros in batting practice.

    South Korea and Japan Emerge as Key Battlegrounds in the Streaming Wars Heres how much money Americans in their 30s have in their 401(k) accounts You might remember the 1998 New York Yankees. Great team. Won 114 games and the World Series at the peak of a stable, generational dynasty. And if you remember the team, you probably remember its starting lineup. Derek Jeter was the shortstop, of course. Who was the center fielder? Bernie Williams! And the second baseman? Chuck Knoblauch. The exercise is just as frictionless for the 2001 Seattle Mariners, winners of a record 116 games but not the World Series. The 2020 Los Angeles Dodgers exceeded their lofty winning percentages in a pandemic-shortened year, and still share that time capsule quality — a familiar, durable core of names and faces. What they don’t share is the Sporcle-ready, round-peg-round-hole way of ticking off how the pieces fit together. Who’s the center fielder? Well, so usually … it’s mostly Cody Bellinger, who also plays first base but is on the IL right now. OK, the second baseman?...
    April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson became the first black player to play in Major League Baseball. It was on the first basic stage that Robinson played this historic game with the Brooklyn Dodgers. The first match was not trivial for Robinson At the time, MLPs practiced racial segregation, which had the effect of sending African-American baseball players to “Negro leagues” even though they excelled in the game. So Robinson’s entry into the league was criticized by many retreating baseball players; Celebrity No. 42 has been the victim of many insults and threats in his successful 10 year MLA career. Before jumping into the big league, Robinson made his professional debut at the Montreal Royals, a school club affiliated with the Brooklyn Dodgers, which played in the AAA-Caliber International League. In 1997, MLP retired its jersey from 42nd on all teams in the league. Since 2004, April 15 has been known as “Jackie Robinson’s Day” and all major league players wear the 42nd jersey in memory of the legendary athlete at matches on this special day. Our tribute to a great...

    (CBS LA) — It’s been spring for over a week. And the weather in many parts of the country is already starting to warm up. But it won’t actually feel like spring until April 1, when MLB opens its 2021 regular season. Thankfully that’s only a couple days away.

    Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports A Dodgers fan had a billboard put up near Fenway Park thanking the Red Sox for trading Mookie Betts. The fan was the CEO of a site that organizes trips across the country to watch the Dodgers play.

    Thursday, 11 Feb 2021. 21:01 LOS ANGELES – Before signing his name under contract with the Dodgers, Trevor Boyer inquired with former teammates. “There is nothing but high praise for everyone,” said the 2020 National Sai Young winner. “I didn’t hear anything negative. “ Power was introduced to the media based at Dodger Stadium, along with manager Dave Roberts and Andrew Friedman, who headed the baseball operations for Los Angeles. In his youth, Perr would go with his father at this time and listen to Vin Scully through headphones. A native of North Hollywood, he attended high school in Santa Clarita and attended UCLA. On Thursday, the right-handed player wore a 27-year-old sweater and received a three-year contract. “I want to be part of an organization that can win,” Burr said. I finished second in the NCAA and Majors, which was enough for me. “ Last season, he led the nation with an average of 1.73.

    Next1 of 3Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse The Los Angeles Dodgers are likely to move on from several notable players in free agency this offseason. The Los Angeles Dodgers are still basking in the glory of being World Series champions. The organization should be a contender for years to come and even more elite talent could be heading to SoCal once free agency begins. The team also has some internal decisions to make on their own free agents. Justin Turner is the biggest name to discuss and the decision was already on the table before his controversial return to the field following a positive COVID-19 test. Let’s take a look at three players who may not be wearing a Dodgers uniform in 2021.3 players Dodgers are likely to lose in free agency3. Joc PedersonJoc Pederson barely stayed with the team in 2020.

    The Los Angeles Dodgers’ lineup this season has been incredibly productive. Things are looking very different in this unusual 2020 season, but one facet that remains unchanged is the dominance of the Los Angeles Dodgers, as Dave Roberts once again has his team in the postseason. Adding Mookie Betts gave the Dodgers one of the league’s most fearsome lineups from top to bottom, and they’ve been so hot of late that they’ve joined a category previously occupied by only two other teams in MLB history. Los Angeles’ decision to bank on a deep, balanced approach in the lineup that lives and dies by the home run ball has paid dividends, as they became the third team in MLB history to have five players hit 10 or more home runs in the first 50 games of a season, joining the 1956 Cincinnati Redlegs and the 2000 Anaheim Angels. Interesting note from @Dodgers_PR. The Dodgers are one of only three teams ever to have five players with 10+ homers through 50 games, along with the 56 Cincinnati Redlegs and 2000 Angels. —...

    The San Francisco Giants are supposed to return to Oracle Park Tuesday to open a six-game homestand following a stunning series split in Los Angeles. If Major League Baseball has the players’ best interests in mind, the Giants probably shouldn’t play on Tuesday, or anytime this week. With a widespread COVID-19 outbreak decimating the Miami Marlins roster (at least 10 players have reportedly tested positive) and other prominent stars across the league dealing with lingering effects of positive tests, it’s increasingly clear the league’s health and safety protocols aren’t enough to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. MLB postponed two games Monday, calling off the Marlins-Orioles game and the Phillies-Yankees matchup to “conduct additional COVID-19 testing.” If the Phillies, who hosted the Marlins on Sunday, have an outbreak on their roster, the season could be over before a full week of games is even complete. The Giants will hold out hope veteran right-hander Jeff Samardzija can start Tuesday’s home opener, in part because blissfully ignorant hope is all MLB can cling to at this point. The reality is no one...
    When outfielder Austin Slater slugged a pair of doubles and drove in five runs out of the leadoff spot in the Giants’ exhibition game in Oakland on Monday, fans had high hopes 2020 would mark Slater’s breakout season. After back-to-back blowout losses in Los Angeles, Slater will finally make his season debut. Slater played his first major league game back on June 2, 2017, but the former eighth round draft choice still has fewer than 500 career at-bats. Despite inconsistent play from their outfielders over the past few years, Slater has never received consistent opportunities to lay claim to a starting job. It appears that opportunity won’t materialize this season either, but first-year manager Gabe Kapler is committed to playing him whenever the Giants face a left-handed pitcher. Slater’s career OPS is nearly 100 points higher against left-handers (.761) than right-handers (.664), but his splits were even more disparate in 2019 when his OPS was .838 in 91 at-bats against lefties and .671 in 101 at-bats against right-handers.

    The stadium was empty but Panda-monium broke out anyway at Friday night's Giants-Dodgers game in Los Angeles. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Dodgers utility player Chris Taylor had a not-quite-socially distanced run-in with Giants first baseman Pablo Sandoval (aka "Kung Fu Panda") that quickly went viral and turned into a meme for the moment we're living through. Taylor was racing toward first just as Sandoval was leaping in a vain attempt to catch a high throw from third. BLUE JAYS TO PLAY IN BUFFALO MINOR LEAGUE PARK AMID PANDEMIC Then it happened: Taylor ran face-first right into the backside of the 268-pound Sandoval. Both players went tumbling to the ground. It wasn't quite a "Down goes Frazier!" moment -- but it was close. Social media users, of course, loved it. Despite the crash, Taylor didn't appear hurt and he stayed in the game. The Dodgers went on to win 9-1, after beating the Giants 8-1 the previous night.

(Photo by Will Newton/Getty Images) Cody Bellinger thinks the Dodgers celebrations need better celebrations. The 2020 MLB season is set to begin this Thursday. It will be unlike any previous season, with no fans in attendance and a 60-game schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Players will need to make a lot of adjustments in an unorthodox year. For the Los Angeles Dodgers, celebrating will be one of those adjustments. 2019 NL MVP Cody Bellinger thinks their celebrations aren’t good enough heading into the season. https://twitter.com/jphoornstra/status/1285060434781851648 Without fans, the lack of energy in the stadium may make end-of-game celebrations awkward for players.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts revealed that he will use the designated position to give defense defense to several of his field players. In a conversation with MLB Networks, the California squad driver said he will make the decision based on the opponent’s starting pitcher’s hand.

    Several minor league baseball players were released by their teams Thursday, but Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher David Price is reportedly doing everything he can to help those athletes.
