It’s the start of summer and if you couldn’t tell by the date on the calendar, perhaps the 115-degree on field temperature will confirm that. Even in places with air conditioning, it’s warm.
Today’s game is on FOX, followed by the Hollywood Stars Game on the field. Kareem Abdul Jabbar is going to give the lineups on TV, so that should be pretty cool.
Before I post the lineup, here’s a really cool story about a former Dodger beat writer in the 1950s and 60s who went on to work for the Angels, George Lederer. If you take a few minutes to read it, I guarantee you’ll learn something new. I know I did.
Also, for those of you who tuned into DodgerTalk last night, we wound up postponing Ned’s appearance because the show didn’t start until close to midnight. He’s going to do it on another day this homestand, so keep tuning in.
