Blog Kiosk: 4/12/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Just a fantastic photograph of the "Duke" from 1956. It is currently available at auction at RMY (link here).

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1962 Dodgers left-handed rookie Pete Richert made his major league debut by striking out the first six batters he faced -- tying records for strike outs in an inning (4 K's in the 3rd inning), successive strike outs by a pitcher in his major league debut, and consecutive strikeouts by a relief pitcher. BTW, he also won the game when the Dodgers mounted a comeback by scoring seven runs in the fifth inning.
Per a twitter translation: "These are one of the things I admire of my former colleague Trayce Thompson always playing strong and with much love God continue to give many blessings and the opportunity to play much more because he actually deserves it."

Locastro was going to be a base-stealing threat if he made the roster. Though he didn't make the postseason roster, it was those three days that gave him hope entering Oklahoma City's home opener Tuesday night against Round Rock.
“I think being able to get my feet wet last year was a great stepping stone,” Locastro said Tuesday. “I was taking it like I was playing with the house's money. I was trying to enjoy it but make an impression.”
  • I just can't get enough of Vin Scully. Listen to him wax poetic about the Dodgers and the upcoming 2020 All-Star Game below, via a tweet from the Dodgers:
