The Dodgers have made big moves this offseason to acquire Joe Kelly, A.J. Pollock, Russell Martin just to name a few. But one name that Dodgers fans got to see on fully display last night is 3rd base coach Dino Ebel.
In 9 minutes worth of footage captured by the television crew on SportsNet LA, Ebel was mic'd up and here are some of the best quotes from the game.
On what it is going to be like being the 3rd base coach for the Dodgers:
I can't wait. It always has been a dream of mine sitting up at Dodgers stadium as a kid growing up in California watching the Dodgers play and being on the field as a major league player. Now getting my chance 32 years at the third base spot
Earliest Dodgers memory:
In 1988 Florida Johnny Padre our pitching coach Chico Fernandez, Leo Pasada, listening those guys talk baseball and putting that uniform on. Right away you buy in and the great minds. Seeing Sandy Koufax and even seeing Orel in 1988 when they won the World Series and the following year seeing them at Spring Training. The Dodger tradition is something I will never forget.
