  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1946 the very first playoff series to determine a league champion is played between the Dodgers and Cardinals. Today is Game 1 of a three game set and is played in St. Louis. Unfortunately, Brooklyn would lose Game 1, 4-2, and lose the series a couple of days later at home, 8-4In 1974 Dodger reliever Dr. Mike Marshall set a Major League mark when he made his 106th appearance of the season. In 1993 Mike Piazza set a Dodgers new record for RBI's in a season for a rookie when he plated his 107th run during an 8-5 victory over the Astros.

  • This is cool. Per Yahoo Sports; "Dodgers fanatic on receiving end of yet another important home run."
Catching a home run at a baseball game, let alone even receiving a ball requires a great amount of luck. For Dodgers fan Keith Hupp, the process has become routine. Hupp was once again on the receiving end of a home run on Friday night at AT&T Park when the Dodgers took on the San Francisco Giants.

  • Via Bill Plunkett at the Daily News; "Dave Roberts, Dodgers don’t sound eager to part, but manager’s contract status is uncertain."
“We have a really good working relationship,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said this week. “I think both sides expect to work together for a long time. We’ve had conversations and I think it’s one of those things where all of our focus is on winning a championship and picking that up when we get to the offseason.
“I think because the relationship is so strong and the communication – I get it being a question. But it’s not really a concern for any of us because of the relationship in place.”
