This coming Wednesday Panini will be releasing their 2015 Cooperstown Baseball set. Check out a couple of Jackie Robinson cards above. Go here to see a whole boatload of preview pics from the set.
Below are some links to check out:

- Via Barry Lewis at Tulsa World, "Tommy Lasorda can stand the (Tulsa) heat."
“It gets a little warm here once in a while, but I played in Kansas City and Cuba, so I’ve played in some hot places,” Lasorda said during an appearance Thursday at ONEOK Field. “I was going to pitch against the White Sox and was sitting on the porch, and I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walking, that’s how hot it got in Kansas City.”
- Some good news on the draft signing front. Via Jon Heyman on twitter, the Dodgers have signed their 2015 1st round pick Walker Buehler (24th overall). BTW, Buehler also needs Tommy John Surgery, via Heyman's twitter.

- Well this is disappointing, via his twitter. Funkhouser was a Dodger 2nd 2015 first round draft pick - 35th overall. BTW, the the Dodgers will get a compensation pick in 2016 - a 36th pick.
Wanted to be the first to announce tht I will not be signing, and will return to the University of Louisville for my senior season #L1C4 #⚾️— Kyle Funkhouser (@k_funk16) July 17, 2015
Can't forget to thank the Dodger organization for selecting me in this year's draft. Wishing them the best of luck moving forward— Kyle Funkhouser (@k_funk16) July 17, 2015
