|Another offseason activity I overlooked posting about during the holiday madness of December:
Continuing the Dodgers franchise's rich history of expanding the game of baseball, a couple of the current team's players traveled to the United Arab Emirates last month, courtesy of Emirates Airlines, the official airline of the Dodgers. Chase, along with Rojo Chingon, brought not just a bit of Dodgers to the Middle East, but a bit of L.A. as well, as both are hometown heroes born and raised in Los Angeles County.
This follows a trip to the region taken early in the 2017 offseason by El Titan and Doc, highlights of which are linked here, via Spectrum Sportsnet.
|Emirates’ local grassroots initiatives with the Los Angeles Dodgers highlight the airline’s commitment to the development of baseball in Dubai and the UAE. Emirates and the Los Angeles Dodgers currently support the Dubai Little League with financial support, equipment, and uniforms to develop the talent of the 700 players in different divisions. |
The World of Dodgertown it is, indeed.
"The Dodgers have always occupied an enormous place in the history of the game. If the Yankees are the most successful team in baseball history, the Dodgers are the most essential. Their legacy is unique."
