Quote reblogged from It's a long season. with 47 notes

The Diamondbacks trot out into this gorgeous green field of dreams. Outfielders languidly hurl white rocks at each other, flat and hard. These aren’t parabolas but bullets shot flat over 50 metres. The arms on these people! A hairy man warms up on the pitcher’s mound. It’s Wade Miley. He’ll be throwing the first one to Yasiel Puig, a 23-year-old from Cienfuegos in Cuba. And … strike. If that wasn’t a fastball it was a very-bloody-rapid one. The fans, 90% Aussies, are right into this. There’s little parochialism. The ground looks magnificent with a diamond, a truly big, beautiful thing. The SCG always scrubs up well. But this, this is something else.

I’m sick today, but this photo of the late-70s/early-80s era Dodgers dressed in unspeakable outfits posing in the Dodger Stadium planter boxes makes me feel like a million bucks.

Quote reblogged from Pitchrs & Poets with 110 notes

One of the wonderful things about Dodger Stadium is the cross section of people you see at games. It isn’t a perfect reflection of L.A. by any means, but there is something minorly heartwarming when you get 18-year-old kids from Pico Rivera high-fiving with 60-year-old accountants from Beverly Hills. There is something democratic about the fact that Larry King and Larry King’s housecleaner have to sit in the same traffic entering Chavez Ravine, and then again exiting the parking lot.

I wrote about the gentrification of Dodger Stadium for The Classical.  (via ericnus)

Let’s get things started here at Google Translates Korean Media Baseball Photo Captions with this one. That’s A.J. Ellis, of course, but his last name, when transliterated into Korean and then Google Translated into English, comes out as “Alice.” I love that. Also, ”Alice lonely, sitting alone in the bullpen” is kind of poetic and sad, isn’t it?

I made a thing. You should go follow it if you like laughing at silly baseball-related stuff.

Vin Scully will broadcast Dodgers' opening games from Australia →

newgrassonthefield:

I think we can all agree that this is AWESOME WONDERFUL OUTSTANDING NEWS.

In addition, Vin will be calling four Dodgers spring training games: 2/26, 2/27 (vs. ARI), 3/9 (vs. SF) and 3/6 (vs. COL).
