Dodgers Release 2015 Spring Training Schedule

lat-sp-dodgers-clayton-kershaw-20141111Finally the Dodgers release the Spring Training schedule!   I had seen other teams schedules before so I had jogged down the dates they were playing the Dodgers but now we have a complete schedule!

From Ken Gurnick:

opens March 4 with a home game against the White Sox at their shared facility at Camelback Ranch-Glendale.

The schedule of 30 games concludes with a Freeway Series against the Angels on April 2-4 — the games on Thursday and Friday night in Anaheim, the Saturday game at Dodger Stadium — with all game times to be announced.

The club has at least one home game during each of the four Cactus League weekends. There will be four scheduled split-squad doubleheaders.

The Dodgers will play the World Series champion San Francisco Giants on March 9 at Scottsdale and March 27 at Camelback Ranch.

Sandy Koufax drilled by line drive is OK.

What a scare we all got this morning when news got around that Sandy Koufax  got hit in the forehead by a line drive.

The line drive was hit by Andre Either.  Oh, we know Andre feels terrible.  He was quoted by Dylan Hernandez saying “Your heart kind of leaps out of your body right there for a second.”

Ken Gurnick reported that Sandy Koufax stopped by the Press Box to reassure them that he was OK.  Sandy underwent a CT scan and everything is fine.

The always funny @DodgerzGM said: “Andre Ethier apologized to Koufax for hitting him in the head with a line drive. Said he was aiming for one of the other three outfielders. ”   LOL

My friend Kent Whittaker twitted me “I thought Andre can’t hit lefties.”   Funny one Kent.

Dylan Hernandez reported that Koufax jokingly said he might test the new protective cap for pitchers tomorrow.     Good idea Sandy.  I hope you do wear one.

Glad you are feeling better Sandy.   We hope to see you with the protective cap tomorrow.

Dodger Baseball is Back!

Even Don Mattingly looks slim.  I wish I too can report to Spring Training all skinny.

Dodgers against the Cubs at Camelback Ranch!  Wish I was there.

Billingsley starts against Barney.

I am skipping my Pilates class at noon (we have classes at work at noon Monday, Tuesday and Thursday)  to listen to the game.

Vin Scully quote about Billinglsey giving out already a single, a home run and two doubles  “Sure, you hate to be lather…”

Juan Uribe is the first baseman for this game.

Mike Piazza is at Camelback Ranch.  DylanHearnandez reported that Mike said of Vin Scully:  “I’d love to see him”  I hope to apologize.

Sandy Koufax, A Beautiful sight in Dodger Blue

When the Dodgers posted the first picture of Sandy Koufax suit up in Dodger Blue, I got excited!  I had seen him Sunday at Camelback Ranch with a white long sleeve t-shirt and jogging pants.   Unfortunately we had to leave Sunday so we did not get to see him Monday all dressed in Dodger Blue.  But that is OK, just seeing the pictures,  I got super excited.  I could not wipe a big smile off my face while I work on President’s Day. 

The pictures below are from Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo who does an excellent  job.  check out all the photos here:
