The final home series of the season kicked off with a bang as the Dodgers welcomed the newest addition to their "Ring of Honor" on Friday. As you can see, broadcasting legend Jaime Jarrin will now be honored for all of posterity. Watch the pregame video montage the Dodgers put together for him here. They then welcome Billie Jean King and Illana Kloss into the Dodger family.

The next day Chase Utley was named the recipient of the 2018 Roy Campanella Award, and would then get a hearty ovation from fans the following day when it is announced that Sunday would be his last day on the field as a Dodger during the regular season. You can watch the ovation here.

Lastly, the inaugural class of the upcoming "Legends of Dodger Baseball" were presented to the fans on Fan Appreciation Day -- Fernando Valenzuela, Steve Garvey and Don Newcombe.

“We’ve been trying to figure out a spot to place him and today he threw the ball really well,” Roberts said. “And even in St. Louis, I thought the inning the ball came out well. So, to get him up and down two innings, I thought that was good for him. He’ll get a couple days off here and we’ll see where we’re at after that.”

"As a woman, there aren't many women in C-Suites, but 95 percent of women in C Suites identify with being an athlete," King said. "They've proven through data that if you have inclusion in your company, it actually goes to the bottom line. You make more money.
"I also think it sounds a very strong message. You always want to be hospitable in your relationships with other people. The Dodgers stand for something bigger than themselves."

The bungled break-in went down on Thursday evening at around 10:45 PM. An intruder had the audacity to jump the front gate then ring the doorbell without first gaining access via the security intercom. The intruder used another intercom linked to the security system via the front door to ask if "unidentified person" was able to come downstairs and open the padlock.

As I welcome people into my family network, I jokingly tell them that there are only two things that are required. You must be a Dodger fan and a loyal Democrat. 
One of these is actually true. My loyalty to the Dodgers is absolute and long-suffering. I have probably spent more money attending Dodger games than donating to the Democratic Party.
