"Going to the World Series was such a cool experience. The pageantry and entertainment perspective reminded me very much of the Stanley Cup Finals of 2012 and 2014," Ruehle said. "There was obviously one difference. I had never seen the visiting team win a championship right there in front of me. That was so surreal. But, other than the Game 7 result, it was so much fun to be a part of the World Series." 
“I’ve been in a lot of different situations and scenarios in my career — from some very high highs to some very low moments. I’ve been pretty much been everywhere in between and in and out of baseball, so I do think I have a large spectrum I can pull on to relate to players,” Prior said. “That’s one thing I think I can bring to the table. I feel my perspective in the game is unusual. I was up early in my career, was in the big leagues at 21 years old. But I was also in the Minor Leagues at 33, 34, on the way out.

“Kirk Gibson holds a special place in Dodger history and all of us at Historic Dodgertown enjoyed welcoming him this weekend,” said (Peter) O’Malley. “Kirk has extraordinary memories of Vero Beach and spring training. Kirk’s professionalism and commitment to winning has made a lasting impact on the Dodger organization.”
“I have been thinking a lot lately about 1988, being the 30th anniversary of our World Championship,” said Gibson.  “Because I was in Florida, I took the invitation of Peter O’Malley to stop by and relive being part of the organization’s great accomplishments that year. 
"I was really overwhelmed with the positive atmosphere this special place brings to me.”
