Blog Kiosk: 1/8/2015 - Dodger Links - Jimmie Rollins and Another Kershaw Award

Yesterday was National Bobblehead Day, so in celebration the Dodgers unveiled their first bobble of the upcoming 2015 season.  It is Clayton Kershaw's Cy Young/MVP bobble that will be given out to fans on Tuesday, May 12th.  Check out a pic of it above.  Graphic via @Dodgers on twitter.

  • Clayton Kershaw & Mike Trout were named 2014 Sportsmen of the Year by the Los Angeles Sports Council.  Per a press release:
The Los Angeles Sports Council has named Angels outfielder Mike Trout and Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw as the 2014 Sportsmen of the Year. Each player won the Most Valuable Player Award in their respective league, which is the first time an Angel and a Dodger have been so recognized in the same year.

The pair will be honored during the 10th Annual LA Sports Awards, presented by Coca-Cola, which will be held on Sunday, March 15 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The LA Sports Awards are presented annually by the Sports Council to celebrate the greatest moments of the year in sports in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. 
This is the second time Kershaw has won the award and he is the first two-time winner.  He was named the Sportsmen of the Year in 2011.  You can check out the LA Sports Council website here.
"There was only one place I wanted to go if I left Philadelphia and that was Los Angeles -- a place that has history, a place that wants to win, and I wanted to be a part of something special and somehow have an impact on that," Rollins said. "It wasn't happening in Philly at the moment, so I'm not surprised. I'm just glad it happened."
The photo on the right was taken by Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2015. Go here to check out some photos from Jon SooHoo of Rollins' press conference yesterday. 
  • Here's a video of the $1Mil appraisal of a 19th Century Baseball collection that aired on the Antique Roadshow earlier this week.  What a fantastic find and a great story.  BTW, the appraisal is likely way too high.  The scorecards (the pics with ornate borders) are not one-of-kind and are poorly trimmed - known as Mort Rogers Scorecards.  The CDV's, on the other hand, are scarce.  Also, the autographed letter is just awesome.
