  • Clayton Kershaw’s Good Sportsmanship

    Epoch Times ^ | 10/23/19 | Larry Elder
    While Clayton Kershaw shows that he is a good sport when it comes to losing, not all athletes have gracefully accepted loss as well as him. Larry goes through a list of historical athletes, some who have been good sports, others who have dealt with their loss in less than admirable ways. The underlying lesson is that despite the odds against you, learn from your losses and never give up. You never know how things might turn out.

    Shortened title. Full title: BI Brass Ran Up $65K World Series Tab of Freebies in Luxury Box of LA Dodgers Owners While Team Was Target of FBI Grand Jury Probe Numerous FBI executives lived it up in the executive suite and lounge of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ owners during the 2018 World Series, attending the sky-high-priced event for free — at the same time the Dodgers were a target of a federal grand jury investigation. Federal sources said a team of high ranking FBI brass from the Los Angeles field office attended a World Series game between the Dodgers and...

    Bill Buckner, the longtime major leaguer whose error in the 1986 World Series for years lived in Red Sox infamy, died Monday.

    "What I knew was what they were doing was wrong then, and it's wrong today," said [Rick] Monday. "I had a lot of friends who lost their lives protecting the rights and freedoms that flag represented. I'm not sure what I was thinking, except I was angry and I started to run after them. It is the way I was raised growing up in Santa Monica, [Calif.], and it was reinforced by my six years in the Marine Reserves," he said. Monday said the crowd suddenly began to sing "God Bless America."...(with video)

    In Newcombe's debut season, he and Dodgers teammates Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella became three of the first four African-Americans (along with Cleveland outfielder Larry Doby) to appear in an All-Star Game. After a break to serve in the military during the 1952 and '53 seasons, he returned, and with the likes of Robinson, Campanella, Duke Snider, Gil Hodges and Pee Wee Reese, helped create a World Series champion.

    The wild thing about this particular Super Bowl matchup, though, is that the phenomenon of teams from the same cities facing off in two consecutive title games is very rare. By virtue of having Red Sox-Dodgers and Patriots-Rams both taking place in the 2018 (or 2018-2019 season), it marks the first time since Super Bowl III in 1969 that this has happened: Super Bowl III: Jets-Colts in January 1969, and then in October 1969 Mets-Orioles. Different seasons. Same calendar year.

    OS ANGELES -- The Dodgers are ready for their World Series rematch with the Astros. The Dodgers flexed their muscle in Thursday's 21-5 win over the contending Brewers, securing a series split behind seven home runs from five players and six solid innings from Clayton Kershaw. The Dodgers scored a season-high nine runs in the seventh; the 21 total runs are the franchise's most since July 21, 2001, in Colorado and the most ever at Dodger Stadium. Joc Pederson started the night with a leadoff homer and left the yard again in the seventh, Cody Bellinger broke the game open...

    MLB Trade Rumors ^ | July 18, 2018 | Kyle Downing and Steve Adams
    After a small medical holdup involving one of the prospects coming back, the Dodgers have acquired All-Star shortstop Manny Machado from the Orioles. Outfielder Yusniel Diaz is the key piece headed back to Baltimore in the deal. They’ll also receive minor-league right-handers Dean Kremer and Zach Pop, along with infielders Rylan Bannon and Breyvic Valera. The Dodgers will take on the entirety of Machado’s remaining 2018 salary, which checks in at about $6.3MM. Since starting out the year with an 8-20 record, it’s been all but certain that the Orioles would deal the impending free agent in exchange for more...

    Forty years ago, a man and a child tried to burn a flag on the field at Dodger Stadium, and were thwarted by an ex-Marine outfielder. It's not as simple as it looks. On April 25, 1976, on a hazy Sunday afternoon, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs were playing the final game of a meaningless early-season series at Dodger Stadium when, quite suddenly, one person and then another ran onto the field. It was the bottom of the fourth inning, and Ted Sizemore was at bat. Cubs centerfielder Rick Monday had experience dealing with streakers, drunks, and other...

    Wally Moon, the wiry outfielder with the old-school crew cut who helped take the Dodgers to the World Series three times and became a crowd favorite for his towering “Moon shots,” has died. Moon, who became part of the Dodger’s lineup shortly after the team moved west from Brooklyn, died Friday in Bryan, Texas. He was 87.
