Wizard of Oz Night at the Ballpark

With April 1st so far away, this must be legit. Will Ozzie Smith throw out the first pitch? That would be ToTototally awesome!

Dodgers finalize Minor League coaching staffs

We wondered how Guggenheim’s money combined with Friedman’s forward thinking would manifest itself in the organization. Maybe healthier training tables for minor-league players?

After radically reshaping the front office, the Dodgers announced their Minor League staff for 2015 with only a handful of personnel changes, including the addition of a third coach at all levels.

The Dodgers coaching staff runs almost a dozen deep, so why skimp out in the minors? I guarantee this is common practice throughout baseball within five years.
What else?

New director of player personnel Gabe Kapler said the added coach helps ensure at least one Spanish-speaking staff member on every affiliate.

This, too, is a move that seems so obvious - yet it’s 2015 and the Dodgers are making news by doing it.
