Dodgers News And Notes

A couple of late night Dodger notes:

Jimmy Campanis' WS ring found. A 40-year-old Azusa man has been arrested in the theft of Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Jimmy Campanis' 1988 World Series ring. The ring was taken from a pouch in his golf bag during a charity golf tournament in Chino Hills.

Ivan DeJesus impressing in the Arizona Fall League.'s Tony Jackson gives us the details on the Dodgers' future 2B.

Dodgers sign two Japanese amateur pitchers. The Dodgers signed Japanese amateurs Kazuya Takano and Kazuki Nishijima to minor league contracts. According to sources in Japan, Takano is an 18-year-old right-hander whose high school class isn't scheduled to graduate until the spring. He has three effective pitches,a fastball, curve and split-finger pitch. Nishijima is a 21-year-old college left-hander.

Dodgers to open Dream Field in Northridge. The Dodgers Dream Foundation, in partnership with the LA84 Foundation and the L.A. City Department of Recreation and Parks, will open a new Dodgers "Dreamfield" Saturday at the Northridge Recreation Center.  Frank McCourt plans to be at the ceremony along with pitcher Hiroki Kuroda and former Dodgers Ron Cey, Steve Yeager and Lee Lacy.


  1. I'd really like to see De Jesus get a shot at 2B since Uggla is no longer an option.

    But I'm really expecting to see Theriot and his scrappiness back at 2B.

  2. I want Dejesus at 2B too. You're right, we'll probably end up seeing Theriot.
