Josh Tucker at Dodger Insider gives us a early peek at the Tuesday, July 29th stadium give-away. It will be a Vin Scully 65th Anniversary microphone. A sketch is shown above.
- BTW, former Dodger hero and current adversarial coach of the Diamondbacks, Kirk Gibson, has just joined twitter. I kid you not. Go here and follow him, @23KGibby.
- Via Ron Cervenka at Think Blue LA, "After 64 spring training camps Maury Wills still enjoys his job".
- Then, Ron at Think Blue LA provides an update to the construction work being done at Dodger Stadium, and includes a bunch of photos.
- Via Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider, "Chris Perez hopes health is on his side in 2014".
“I feel great this year,” Perez said today at Camelback Ranch. “This time last year I was already hurt. It’s a lot better being healthy and being able to get my work in and work on stuff, instead of just going into the training room to get ready to go on the field. Compared to last year, I feel a night-and-day difference. It’s encouraging and it’s exciting.”
- David Vassegh of Dodger Talk mentioned that Sandy is coming.
Rick Honeycutt mentioned tonight that Sandy Koufax will arrive at camp next week #dodgertalk

- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Don Mattingly happy Derek Jeter retiring on his own terms".
"I saw him the first day he walked into spring training right out of high school. He was a skinny little kid, but was probably the toughest guy I think I've ever seen on the field," Mattingly recalled. "He was competitive. He's been winning since he's got there."
