2017 Dodger Spring Training Info and Complete Roster

Last week the Dodgers just released their entire 2017 Spring Training roster, so I thought I would pass that along (see at very bottom).  This should be a helpful guide for those of you attending games at Camelback Ranch.  After all, it just isn't reasonable for you to know everybody's number.  BTW, this list will likely adjust/change as Spring Training moves along.  I'll do my best to update this.  Below are some pertinent dates to keep in mind:
  • February 15 - Pitchers and Catchers Report 
  • February 16 - Pitchers and Catchers 1st Workout
  • February 20 - Position Players Report 
  • February 21 - First Full-Squad Workout 
  • February 24 - Dodgers Photo Day (media related) 
  • March 6 - All Minor League Players 1st Workout
Here are the typical batting and field practice schedules for home games.

Above is a fantastic look at Tommy Lasorda's Dodger office, likely taken in the late 70's.  Directly behind him is his Frank Sinatra wall, and directly to his right are a group of 1977 Topps Dodger cards on a plaque.  Via Arash Markazi at ESPN in a story about Tommy's Dodger Stadium office:
"This is my life," Lasorda said as he stretched his arms out and looked around. "It's all right here in this room. It's all my friends and family. It's like a museum."
