Day 6 Spring Training Report

Spring Training Notes from the Dodgers:

  • DODGERTOWN U.N.: Today the Dodgers received a visit from MLB International, which was shooting video for its various worldwide programming partners. Andre Ethier, Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Jonathan Broxton, Rafael Furcal, Kenley Jansen, Trent Oeltjen and Hiroki Kuroda all took turns reading Dodger messages and tag lines throughout the morning and into the afternoon. In addition to the United States, Dodger players currently represent 10 different countries and one commonwealth this Spring Training: Australia, Canada, Curacao, Dominican Republic, Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Puerto Rico, Taiwan and Venezuela.

  • RALLYING THE TROOPS: Tomorrow morning, Dodger Hall of Famer and Special Assistant to the Chairman Tommy Lasorda will speak at the Nellis Air Force Base Prayer Breakfast in Las Vegas. Lasorda has delivered motivational speeches to more than 40 United States military installations around the world.

  • GLORY DAYS: Dodger broadcaster Steve Lyons was the hardest working man in showbiz today, filming a one-on-one with Dodger skipper Don Mattingly, a fielding tutorial on the art of the backhand with Jamey Carroll and most jarringly, a catching segment with Rod Barajas in which the former infielder donned the “tools of ignorance.” Lyons actually looked pretty spry blocking baseballs in the dirt while in full gear. The former FOX Baseball Game of the Week analyst is set to begin his seventh season providing color commentary for PRIME TICKET and KCAL 9 on all road games outside of the National League West.
