Vin Scully & Boyd Robertson FP

Boyd Robertson – Vin Scully’s right-hand man – literally

Dodger fans have seen his face on the Dodger Stadium jumbotron for three decades.

But chances are that nearly every one of them has said (or thought) “Man, I want that guy’s […]

An interview with 2003 Cy Young award winner Eric Gagné

It was surreal – almost like an out-of body experience. The date was April 6, 2015 – Opening Day at Dodger Stadium – and it was time for the pregame ceremonial first pitch.

The man behind “The Vin Scully Factor” comic strip

During Saturday’s off day between Game-2 and Game-3 of the NLDS, a Drabble comic strip ran in nearly 200 syndicated newspaper across the nation and on-line.
