I have been too busy the last few days to keep up with the Dodgers. Instead of hearing about Navarro being DFA’d when it happened, I just found out about it after midnight. It is bad enough to get canned because you suck, but to be shown the door due to “philosophical differences” including lack of hustle and being unprepared is really embarrassing.
This Day in Dodgers History
August 24, 1960 – During a dull game, Vin Scully, the play-by-play voice of the Dodgers, knowing that many fans in the stands follow the game on transistor radios, asks his listeners to help him surprise third base umpire Frank Secory. His ballpark audience responds when veteran broadcaster tells them, “Let’s have some fun. As soon as the inning is over I’ll count to three, and on three everybody yell, ‘Happy birthday, Frank!'”.
