The Dodgers won for the 103rd time tonight and will finish with the best record in baseball in 2017.
The 103 wins are a Los Angeles Dodgers record.
The Dodgers need one victory this weekend to break the Los Angeles Dodgers record for wins in a season.
The franchise record is 105 wins by the 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers, one of the most powerful teams in baseball history.
I have tremendous admiration and appreciation for our country’s military veterans.
Almost every guy I know over the age of 60 was in the armed services. They have a hell of a lot more guts than I’ll ever have.
My Dad, a gentleman and a patriot if there ever was one, served in Korea. No one had more class and character than my Dad.
I’m certain Dad wouldn’t have been offended by the NFL players’ demonstrations.
And I know how Jackie Robinson — one of the greatest heroes in American history — would have felt about the current athletes’ demonstrations. (He served in the military, too.)
That’s all I need to know.
Longtime friend Matt Rauen added to my “Field of Dreams” knowledge, sending me this picture of the newspaper office scene.
Unbeknownst to me before Matt’s message, that’s Bill Betts wearing the maroon shirt in the background. Bettsie was a legendary teacher at Western Dubuque Junior High in Farley. One of the most interesting guys you’ll ever meet.
