Blog Kiosk: 6/29/2020 - Dodgers Links & Mews - Some Odds and Ends


Here's a fantastic 1913 vintage photographs featuring a "Bloomer" girl -- a female ballplayer/team who would barnstorm around the country taking-on all competition. The photographs is via the Shorpy blog -- easily my favorite of all vintage photography websites. Check it out here.

Toles was sleeping behind the Federal Express building, located at Key West International Airport, 3491 S. Roosevelt Blvd. All he had with him was a black book bag, deputies said.
Police said they gave Toles several chances to leave the area without being arrested but he wouldn’t walk away, wrote Deputy Tomas Venegas.

"It's like the parent who takes his kid to daycare with a little bit of a temperature," he said. "Now you're putting everybody else at risk. You can't be a spreader. You've got to take every possible precaution, and that sometimes means wearing a mask and gloves. I can't understand why we weren't being told to wear masks and gloves in the beginning of this. Everybody thinks, 'It can't happen to me.' But this can happen to anybody."

Hoese, the Dodgers’ first first-round pick in 2019, currently sits at No. 10 on our Top 10 3B Prospects list with the chance to have an excellent power profile for the hot corner. Miguel Vargas (No. 15) and Edwin Rios (No. 18) give this deep system some options at the corners for the future.
“Basically, in 2012, I got to play for the Red Sox and the Dodgers. Both were historic years, for both franchises,” Gonz├ílez said. “Red Sox, it was the one hundred anniversary, Dodgers it was the fiftieth anniversary. So, I kind of played in 150 years of tradition.”
As for the flag he has in his man cave, that holds a special meaning: “And the same year the Red Sox were amazing. They flew this this flag over the Capitol in honor of the birth of our first daughter, Brianna Bell.”

  • Per an AP Report at ESPN -- "Four minor leaguers suspended for violating drug program."
Reza Aleaziz and Juan Idrogo, minor league pitchers for the Los Angeles Dodgers, also received suspensions. Aleaziz was suspended 50 games after testing positive for Amphetamine, and Idrogo received a 72-game ban after testing positive for gw501516, a performance-enhancing substance.
Former presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter are lending their voices to an important baseball milestone: the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Negro Leagues.
The four ex-presidents kicked off the “Tip Your Cap” campaign on Monday, which asks baseball fans to take a photo or short video of themselves tipping their caps in honor of the talented players and civil rights heroes of the Negro Leagues.
