Dodgers Blog Kiosk: 8/10/2012

This photo is just plain awesome.  Hey Dusty Baker!  I want that suit.  The photo is from April 6, 1977, and it features the starting lineup for Opening Day against the Giants.  Pic via twitter @Dodgers.
“I want to win. I don’t care if I’m your best friend or not,” Victorino said. “Sometimes in this era, the way the game’s played is more relaxed. If you still play the old-school way, running the bases hard, hustling, taking extra bases, grinding out at-bats, you kind of stand out. I have always said I will never change that. I was taught as a kid to play that way.”

  • This video is just a treat.  Here is a fan made 8mm film from Dodger Stadium of a World Series Game against the Twins in 1965.  There is no sounds, but the scenery had me in awe.  I am always constantly amazed at what fans wore to ballgames back then.
