Dodgers Blog Kiosk:1/18/2013 - Check Out Pope John Paul II in the Batting Cage!

Check out a pic tweeted by @Dodgers of Don Zimmer, Duke Snider, Carl Erskine and Walt Moryn in Vero Beach in the 50's.
  • 7 current Dodgers are playing in the World Baseball Classic, via Ken Gurnick at
  • Emma at Dodger Blue World continues with her biographies of every living Brooklyn Dodger with Lee Pfund.
  • Scott Andes at Lasorda's Lair makes 19 predictions about the Dodgers.
  • Tomorrow afternoon is the official banner raising game for the LA Kings.  There are some pre-game activities planned, so for information go here.  Also, both Marcel Dionne and Daryl Evans will be on-hand to meet and sign autographs for fans before the game.

  • Christopher Jackson at Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness writes of the lack of shortstop depth in the Dodgers minor league system.
  • Craig Muder at Cooperstown Chatter tells of the 1970 exhibition all-star Baseball game played in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • This is the best Baseball video I've seen all year.  Watch Pope John Paul II taking in some batting practice.  Really, he gets in the cage and takes some swings.  Apparently, he had played on a Vatican softball team.  (Hat Tip: thecolorblew on reddit)  The best comment I saw on youtube said this:
Nothing makes me feel less athletic/coordinated than realizing even a Polish man in his 70s is more comfortable in a batting cage than me.
PS.  I am now unsure if this actually him or a clever hoax.
