Blog Kiosk: 3/20/2018 - Dodgers Links - Noooooo!


Insert expletives above. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
Turner was hoping the X-rays would show something different, but he got the news after the game about the fracture and will talk to the doctors Tuesday to try to find out more. 
“It definitely wasn’t what I wanted to hear,” Turner said. “It started to feel better and better as I was in there doing X-rays, so I was pretty hopeful they would come back negative. You get the news, and it’s tough.”

  • As mentioned yesterday, the Dodgers will pay tribute to Kirk Gibson's 1988 World Series home run by permanently marking a commemorative seat located in the Right Field Pavilion where the walk-off landed during Game 1. The “Kirk Gibson seat” is the first seat at Dodger Stadium to be marked in tribute to a historic event. To the right is a mockup of what that seat will look like. Per a Dodgers press release:
Section 302, Row D, Seat 1 in the Right Field Pavilion will be painted blue and adorned with Gibson’s painted signature, as well as a historical marker. Tickets for the Kirk Gibson seat and a companion seat must be purchased as a pair at Dodgers.com/Gibson and will cost $300.  The purchase price includes two commemorative t-shirts and food and drink in the Coca-Cola All-Inclusive Right Field Pavilion. $200 of the $300 purchase price will be donated to the Kirk Gibson Foundation to raise money and awareness for Parkinson’s Research.
