Arruebarruena or Arruebarrena

So which is it?  Arruebarruena or Arruebarrena?  I asked the Dodgers when I started seeing it spelled  Arruebarrena.   The response yesterday was “Arruebarruena.”  but when the Dodgers first signed Erisbel, you kept seeing Arruebarruena everywhere.

Jesus Padilla saw the Dodgers response to me so he twitted this picture

@Dodgers @crzblue I sort of follow Cuban baseball and the Cuban Ntnl Team, and have always seen it as Arruebarruena.

Once Erisbel arrived at Camelback Ranch, the Dodgers announced him as Erisbel Arruebarrena

Either way, Welcome Erisbel!   I see that both in Cuba and with the Dodgers you are wearing Manny Mota’s number.   Great choice!

‘Arruebarrena’ actually only has one ‘u,’ slips into tie for MLB’s second-longest name

By Matt Monagan | Follow @Mono11

Cuban shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena officially reported to Dodgers Spring Training on Thursday. Along with comparing his playing style to Yasiel Puig, the 23-year-old confirmed that his last name is actually spelled with 12 (Arruebarrena) and not 13 (Arruebarruena) letters. See his Cactus League jersey below:

Dodger Stadium Mural at LAPD Northeast Division

One early morning on my way to the Glendale train station to catch up with my train, I noticed this mural that included Dodger Stadium.  I did not have a chance to stop but the next time that I took the train there, I made sure to stop and take pictures.

    It is located at the LAPD Northeast division on San Fernando Boulevard.    It shows Dodger Stadium, the Police Academy that is next door to Dodger Stadium.  In this picture too is the Los Angeles Zoo.

Here is another part of the mural

Griffith Park.

And here is another part of this long beautiful mural that measures 21′X16′.  The mural was designed and painted by more than a dozen young artists.

22 Days – Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw’s days till Opening Day! This wants me want to dance in the rain!

Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw is now likely to make a fourth consecutive Opening Day start for the Dodgers on March 22, three days after his 26th birthday, against Arizona in the first game of Major League Baseball’s Opening Series in Sydney, Australia. That became highly probable when Zack Greinke left his exhibition start after four pitches Thursday with a mild right calf strain.

Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw watches the flight of his first career home run, starting the scoring in his own 4-0 shutout of the Giants last Opening Day.

If it becomes official, then all Kershaw has to do is maintain his pace and he could be known one day as the greatest Opening Day pitcher.

In his three Opening Day starts over the last three years, the left-hander has thrown 19 scoreless innings and the Dodgers are 3-0. That included seven innings (9 strikeouts) in a 2-1 home win over the Giants…

It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!!

It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!!

Ahhh.  I’ve been waiting for this day!   The first Dodger Spring Training game!  So

like the apron says “The Heck with housework!   Let’s see the Dodgers Play!”

Yesterday was also the launch of the Dodgers new TV Network: SportNetLA

When I got home from work, I spent all the evening watching  SportNetLA until past midnight.  While watching the station.

I also renewed my subscription to MLB at Bat so that I can listen to the game  while I work, at Dodger Stadium and on the road.

Today is 24 days till the Dodgers Opening Day in Australia.  When I think of #24, I think of

Walter Alston went on to manage the Dodgers on one-year contracts for 23 seasons (1954-1976).

Walter Alston, Baseball, Brooklyn Dodgers

Welcome back Baseball!  I missed you!!

Lunch and Baseball!   Baseball and food, my two favorite things!

Don Drysdale had generally handled the Opening Day assignment for the Dodgers in that era of their 1-2 domination on the mound following the club’s move from Brooklyn. The big right-hander started on Opening Day in 1958-61, ’63 and ’65. Johnny Podres had started it in ’62, the first game at Dodger Stadium. For Koufax, ’64 was his turn and his time.

Koufax had been named Most Valuable Player of the 1963 World Series, leading the Dodgers to a sweep of the Yankees and then receiving a unanimous Cy Young Award as well as National League…

Vin Scully Microphone MOCK

By Josh Tucker

The Dodgers 2014 promotional calendar launched with a Vin Scully 65th Anniversary Commemorative Item. Today, the item officially becomes the Vin Scully 65th Anniversary Microphone.

We only have the initial sketch, but this immediately becomes one of the most unique and meaningful Dodgers promotional items in recent memory. The microphone will include a voice chip for fans to press a button and hear Vin. We have a feeling those words will be, “It’s time for Dodger baseball!” The Hall of Fame broadcaster will have his name inscribed on the base.

Get tickets to Vin Scully 65th Anniversary Microphone giveaway night. For the entire 2014 promotional calendar, click here.

The Beatles made their United States debut 50 years ago on this date in 1964 on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” By September, the Fab Four were appearing at Dodger Stadium in a promotion straight out of left field.

Stumbling in the 1964 standings and on their way to a sixth-place finish in the National League, the defending World Champions decided to jump on the Beatles bandwagon. To boost late-season box office interest, the team offered 12″ x 18″ portraits of the British singers by artist Nicholas Volpe, whose Union 76-sponsored illustrations of various Dodgers since 1959 had proved popular with Dodger fans and collectors.

The Beatles portraits were separated into four games – John Lennon (September 12), Paul McCartney (September 15), George Harrison (September 29) and Ringo Starr (October 3) – and distributed to “children through the ages of high school.” The Beatles would later perform their…
