Spring Baseball is just around the corner, and I just can't wait. So when I came across this vintage 1951 Acme press photo on eBay I knew I had to share it here. Per the descriptor attached to the reverse:
Gene Hermanski and Bruce Edwards (right) of the Brooklyn Dodgers oblige with autographs at their spring training camp for Jim Campanis (left) and his younger brother, George. The youngsters showed up on their bicycleBelow are more links to check out:
- This seems like a must see. Via Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider he points to an episode of "Lost L.A." on KCET that airs tonight 8:30 PM; entitles "Before the Dodgers." It features Chavez Ravine. You can also watch it streaming at KCET, here.
- Via Justin Russo at Dodgers Nation, "Puig Soars To New Heights .. Literally." Yasiel recently took an helicopter trip around downtown LA.
- Via Matthew Moreno at Dodger Blue, "Brandon McCarthy Hopes To Return Prior To 2016 All-Star Game."
“I would like to be back before the All-Star break,” he said. “My ultimate goal is to make a start or two before the All-Star break. If it doesn’t happen that’s fine, I’m mentally prepared for that. I want to use that as our foundation of, ‘This is where I need to get to.’”
- Apparently, Dodger prospect Cody Bellinger has added some muscle, via his twitter:
S/O to my man @KPTZ3 for helping me put on 20 pounds this off season, Glendale boundddd— Cody Bellinger (@Cody_Bellinger) February 2, 2016
- Check out the newest digital issue of Baseball Magazine here. You can download it for free. Its cover story covers the impact Jackie Robinson had in Brooklyn.
- This is hilarious. Via Carrabis at Barstool Sports, "Rangers Announce Adrian Beltre Bobblehead Promo With Removable Helmet To Pat His Head." I really do miss Adrian.
- I thought I'd pass along the news that LA Kings broadcaster Bob Miller is doing well. He recently had heart bypass surgery. Via a tweet from the Kings:
