Blog Kiosk: 8/6/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Thank you, Andre!

You can watch the pregame video honoring Ethier, here. Watch the fun little pregame Q&A between Andre and Jason Bateman, here. Andre then spoke with the Dodgers broadcast booth during the game, here. Per Alden Gonzalez at ESPN:
"It's flattering and humbling to have all this fuss for a guy who was just another player in a long line of great Dodgers," Ethier said, his two sons, Dreson and Retton, seated to his right. "It meant a lot to me to play in L.A. for 12 years and play in front of these fans."
"If I could do one more thing," Ethier said, "it would be to play one more game with Matt."
