Alexander: Late October baseball in SoCal again this year? Count on it

Yes, we overreached a year ago. You might not remember, and I might be crazy for issuing this reminder, but This Space went out on a limb a few days before the 2018 baseball season began … a thin, shaky, precarious limb: “It is the beauty of spring training. When it ends, everyone is still undefeated. “So, in that spirit of optimism, why not indulge that wild dream that Southern California baseball fans have harbored for the better part of six decades. “The Dodgers and Angels, playing in October...

Disneyland to test mobile-only ordering for Dole Whip treats at Tiki Juice Bar

There won’t be a long line stretching away from the Tiki Juice Bar in late March for those tasty Dole Whip floats and soft-serve treats that Disneyland visitors crave because the Anaheim theme park will be testing a new mobile ordering strategy designed to help reduce congestion and crowding. The Tiki Juice Bar will run a test on March 28-30 when Dole Whip items at the food stand will be available for purchase only via mobile order, Disneyland officials said. During the test, visitors can still ...

Ducks defenseman Korbinian Holzer making most of consistent ice time

ANAHEIM — Korbinian Holzer has played 150 games over seven seasons in the NHL, including 92 in four seasons with the Ducks. He’s been in their lineup and out of their lineup too many times to count over the years. He’s been sent down to San Diego of the AHL and then recalled from the Gulls. “For me, it’s always been kind of like a roller coaster,” said Holzer, a 31-year-old defenseman. Things have changed recently for Holzer, though. The work has been steady. Finally. In addition to playing his ...

Jets Down Ducks – Hellebuyck Earns Shutout

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Connor Hellebuyck made 29 saves in his first shutout of the season, and Kyle Connor had a goal and an assist in the Winnipeg Jets’ fourth straight victory, 3-0 over the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night. Mark Scheifele scored a power-play goal in the first period and Nikolaj Ehlers added a goal for the Jets, who extended their lead atop the Central Division to three points over Nashville.

Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw accepts delay in start of his season

GLENDALE, Ariz. — For the first time since 2010, Clayton Kershaw will watch the pageantry of Opening Day from the dugout and he knows how that will make him feel. “Disappointed,” the Dodgers left-hander said after throwing to hitters for the first time this spring Wednesday. “Being out there on Opening Day is special and I don’t take that for granted. I love being out there – just what it signifies, being part of Dodgers history. All that stuff, it’s not lost on me. I love doing that. But when y...

NHL Players’ Association thinks Kings’ Drew Doughty is a funny guy

Kings defenseman Drew Doughty is a knee-slapping dude, according to the NHL Players’ Association, which has named Doughty the second-funniest player in the league in a poll in which over 500 players participated. When that subject was broached following practice Wednesday, Doughty didn’t even ask, “What the (expletive) is so funny about me?” No, unlike Joe Pesci’s character Tommy DeVito in Goodfellas, Doughty smiled. “Well, I like to have fun out there,” he said. “I get mad and I take things ser...

Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

Where is Brandon Pirri?

Four, three, two, one. Those numbers speak to the career of one, Brandon Pirri, the journeyman winger who is currently a member of the Vegas Golden Knights. His path to the Golden Knights has been an interesting one, to say the least. At just 27 years old, Pirri has already been a part of five different organizations, playing meaningful NHL games for each team. Now with the Golden Knights, Pirri is experiencing an unfortunately familiar fate, stuck as the odd-man out, the dreaded healthy scratch...

Cross another potential free agent off your 2020-21 wish list. With all due respect to Mookie Betts, who stands alone as the crown jewel of that winter’s free agent crop, Mike Trout is not just another potential free agent.

Dodgers’ Walker Buehler looks strong in late spring debut

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dodgers ace-in-waiting has done more waiting than pitching this spring. But right-hander Walker Buehler finally got in a game Tuesday night, throwing 46 pitches over 2-2/3 innings (many traveling a healthy 98 mph). He gave up three singles, struck out two and was charged with a run when his last baserunner eventually scored. “It was good – a little erratic, a little all over the place,” Buehler said. “But that’s what these games are for.” It might have been Buehler’s first ...

Alexander: Mike Trout’s Angels deal rewards baseball’s best, and most humble, star

The biggest takeaway from the news of Mike Trout’s impending mega-contract: Humility pays. And maybe there’s a certain amount of karma involved in the idea that the guy who doesn’t try to sell himself, doesn’t make headlines off the field, and doesn’t try to get managers fired or set himself above his teammates just got the richest current contract in pro sports. Those commentators along the Eastern Seaboard who salivated over the idea of Trout becoming a Phillie or a Yankee after his contract r...

Ducks primed for Jets rematch after beatdown last month

ANAHEIM — The last time the Ducks faced the Winnipeg Jets, they were coming off a nine-day hiatus for the All-Star break and their bye week. The Ducks were a mess, plain and simple. They were no match for the faster, smarter and more creatives Jets, who thumped them 9-3. The Ducks gave up six goals in a period for the first time in their 25-year history. Somebody by the name of Jack Roslovic scored three times for the Jets, who clicked three times on the power play and fired six pucks past John ...

Mike Trout’s lifetime contract with the Angels is just part of latest trend for MLB superstars

There’s a closed Facebook Group consisting of exactly 30 members, all from the baby boomer generation. Only the chairman of every Major League Baseball team is allowed to join. One day, someone’s sister shared a meme about how the athletes they rooted for growing up used to play for one team. Sandy Koufax. Jerry West. Jim Brown. Maurice Richard. The meme was shared with the Group. It received 30 thumbs up. Quickly, every owner began negotiating a massive contract extension with his star player. ...

California news agencies join forces to obtain previously secret records from hundreds of police agencies

One Los Angeles police officer had sex with a drug addict he met on foot patrol. A San Diego County sheriff’s deputy was linked to a Mexican drug cartel. That same deputy sold erectile dysfunction pills illegally to a colleague in a jail parking lot. A Brea police sergeant hawked official shoulder patches he took from the department for $95 apiece. Such misconduct, once secret under four decades of police confidentiality statutes, now must disclosed under a new transparency law targeting police ...

Canadiens Have Good Addition With Weal

The Montreal Canadiens and general manager Marc Bergevin had a quiet trade 2019 deadline day. The team decided to make only depth moves and avoided big names on the market or rental players. Christian Folin, Dale Weise and Nate Thompson were among the new faces who joined the team. The Habs made only one trade during trade deadline day on Feb. 25 — the acquisition of center Jordan Weal for Michael Chaput. The move was intriguing because the Canadiens already had depth and Weal seemed like just a...
