Capital & Main is an award-winning publication that reports from California on economic, political, and social issues. On opening day of the 2019 season, March 28, one of the most multicultural fan bases in Major League Baseball will once again fill Chavez Ravine to cheer on their Dodgers. This year, however, when their beloved Blue and White take the field, there will be a whole lot more white. That’s because the franchise that broke the color barrier with Jackie Robinson in 1947, and has been a model for diversity in baseball for decades, will field a starting team that is nearly all white. Gone are longtime fan favorites Adrián Gonzalez and Matt Kemp. Gone is the mercurial Yasiel Puig. Culled from their 25-man opening day roster, the Dodgers starting lineup will feature only one person of color, second baseman Enrique Hernandez. The relationship between the Dodgers and diversity has always been complicated. Chavez Ravine, the arid canyon on which … [Read more...] about Why is this iconic sports franchise in one of America’s most multicultural cities so lacking in diversity?

First, the boys in blue are looking good again and maybe, just maybe, the third time will be the charm. And also, the food at Dodger Stadium is looking good again this year with several new dishes and a couple of returning stars making their debut on opening day this month. “We’re just trying to do simple food great.

By J.P. Hoornstra | [email protected] | Daily NewsPUBLISHED: December 21, 2018 at 2:32 pm | UPDATED: December 21, 2018 at 9:23 pm The Dodgers cleared two spots in their 2019 outfield in one dramatic flourish Friday. Matt Kemp and Yasiel Puig were traded to the Cincinnati Reds, along with pitcher Alex Wood and catcher Kyle Farmer, for three players: pitcher Homer Bailey and prospects Jeter Downs and Josiah Gray. The Dodgers also sent cash to Cincinnati to complete the deal – $7 million, according to multiple reports. The main question for the Dodgers now: how will they replace the production of Kemp and Puig, the two popular corner outfielders who combined to hit 44 homers and drive in 148 runs in 2018? “It’s Dec. 21 and we still have a lot of runway left to spring training,” president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. “We’ll still be focused on ways to improve our team between now and then.” For weeks, the Dodgers were … [Read more...] about Dodgers trade Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp to Reds in 7-player deal
