New Dodger Kelly eager for return to Southern California

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Joe Kelly helped the Boston Red Sox win a World Series title. His next goal is to try to win one for the team he grew up rooting for and defeated this October.

The Dodgers on Friday officially announced signing Kelly to a three-year deal worth $25 million that brings the 30-year old right-hander back to Southern California. Kelly was born in Anaheim and grew up in Corona, where most of his family still resides.

“It is one of those things where I am at a point in my career where I have tons of family that is local. I also wanted to be on a team that wins year in and year out,” Kelly said during a conference call.

The good folk of Riverside will be happy, at least.

Red Sox pitcher finds Tony La Russa’s lost World Series ring in surprising place

[Insert joke concerning 2004 World Series here]

Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa has enough rings from his baseball career to nearly fill one hand. He was a three-time World Series champion as a manager, winning one with the Oakland Athletics in 1989 and two more with the St. Louis Cardinals during the early 2000s. Of course, his Hall of Fame induction in 2014 came with a ring too, bringing his total to four.

As we learned on Friday, it can be a chore to keep track of that much precious jewelry. Though the place where La Russa essentially lost one of his Cardinals World Series rings was pretty shocking.

Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Joe Kelly took to Twitter Friday afternoon to reveal La Russa’s World Series ring was actually wedged inside his glove.
