Country star Toby Keith visited with Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers prior to yesterday's game in Texas, and as you can see he has his Baseball allegiance set right. The photo above is via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2015. Go here to check out more pics taken bu Jon from yesterday's game.
Below are some links to check out:
- Via Jamal Collier at MLB.com, "Kershaw's trip home brief but enjoyable."
"It's fun to be home, see your friends and family," Kershaw said. "Usually you don't get to do this until the offseason, so it's a little bit weird, but it's fun for 24 hours or so."
- Via Frank Cesare at the Gammons Daily, "Andre Ethier is Reviving His Career."
Ethier isn’t being fooled by off-speed stuff this year, and he’s shortened his stroke enough to capitalize on pitches inside that may have jammed him in the past. His ability to recognize strikes more efficiently has the lefty making more contact and allowing him to be more aggressive at the dish without swinging recklessly at pitches out of the zone.
- Via Eric Stephen at True Blue LA, "Chris Anderson, Jeremy Horst named Texas League All-Stars."
- Brandon McCarthy is a funny dude, via his twitter:
in keeping with baseball tradition, a Houston exec should walk into the STL offices and hit their best front office guy with a fastball— Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32) June 16, 2015
- Panini America provides a first-look at some of the cards that'll be handed out at participating hobby stores on Father's day; including the Corey Seager card on the right. Go here to check them out.
- Lol! Via J.P. Hoornstra at Inside the Dodgers, "Hector Olivera dealing with an “elevation issue” in Colorado Springs."
- Drei at It's Always A Good Dre in L.A. tells us about Filipino Night at Dodger Stadium; including a review of the Filipino Dog that was served.
- This is amazingly cool. Via Sal Barry at Punk Junk, "Patrick Kane’s “First” Hockey Card." The Chicago Blackhawks star was shown in the stands on a hockey card 12 years before be began his professional career. I wonder if there are ballplayers who found their way onto a Baseball card as a kid?
