This week on the podcast we are joined by True Blue LA managing editor Liz Islas about growing up a Dodgers fan in Giants country, and how her first game in the press box just happened to be the longest regular season game in Dodger Stadium history.
We also talked quite a bit about the Dodgers’ red hot offense, the sublime start by Cody Bellinger, plus the struggles of Joe Kelly and Yimi Garcia in the bullpen. And peach iced tea.
With Bellinger at seven home runs at the time of record, this week’s Dodgers rewind is of Franklin Stubbs, who had seven home runs in April 1987. The first-round pick out of Virginia Tech played six seasons with the Dodgers and started all five games at first base in the 1988 World Series.
Stubbs was a minor league coach across three levels in the Dodgers minor league system from 2009-15, and is now a coach for the Hillsboro Hops, a Diamondbacks Class-A affiliate.
