Dodgers Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda dies at 93

As a teenager growing up near Philadelphia in the 1940s, Tommy Lasorda said he went to a Phillies game once and asked an obscure outfielder with the visiting team, the New York Giants’ Buster Maynard, to sign his scorecard. Maynard snubbed the young Lasorda, pushing the scorecard away. Years later, Lasorda hadn’t forgotten. Then a 21-year-old left-hander in the Brooklyn Dodgers’ farm system, Lasorda found himself in a Sally League game facing Maynard, hanging on after an intermittent big-league ...

Influential people who died in 2020

By BERNARD McGHEE In a year defined by a devastating pandemic, the world lost iconic defenders of civil rights, great athletes and entertainers who helped define their genres. Many of their names hold a prominent place in the collective consciousness — RBG, Kobe, Maradona, Eddie Van Halen, Little Richard, Sean Connery, Alex Trebek, Christo — but pandemic restrictions often limited the public’s ability to mourn their loss in a year that saw more than a million people die from the coronavirus.

Dodgers sign reliever Tommy Kahnle to two-year deal

LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers have taken another low-cost gamble on a formerly effective reliever. They will likely have to wait for the 2022 season to reap any reward from this signing. Free agent right-hander Tommy Kahnle has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal with the Dodgers. Kahnle, 31, underwent Tommy John surgery in August and will not likely be ready to pitch in the major leagues in 2021. The deal includes a $550,000 signing bonus but just a $750,000 salary in 2021, rising to $3.45 million...

For a More Empathic World, People Have to Choose Empathy

In the late 1990s, Najah Bazzy, a nurse in Dearborn, Michigan, made a house call to an Iraqi refugee family to check on their premature baby. When she arrived, she was shocked by how barren their home looked. The family had almost nothing: no stove, no fridge. The adults slept on the carpet. The baby—who’d gone home on a ventilator—was in a laundry basket, wrapped up in a towel. Viscerally feeling the family’s hardship, Bazzy swung into action. She collected her relatives’ extra appliances and ...

Hoornstra: How COVID-19 chaos might help Dodgers repeat as champions

You don’t have to look at the Dodgers’ roster to predict another championship for them in 2021. All you have to do is look at the odds. Not since the New York Yankees’ 1998-2000 three-peat has a champion defended its World Series victory. In a 30-team league with no hard salary cap, that’s not what you would expect. We should have had another back-to-back champion by now. That’s been especially true over the last five years, when a handful of “superteams” emerged in the San Francisco Giants’ wak...

ARLINGTON, Texas — This time, the Dodgers aren’t going to the World Series. The World Series is coming to them.
