Orlando Hudson still has a banner in Dodger Stadium

Leave a comment

The Sons of Steve Garvey blog has a photo up, which was apparently taken last week, showing an Orlando Hudson banner still hanging on the wall in Dodger Stadium. This despite the fact that they non-tendered him he left via free agency and signed with the Twins back in February. Maybe Jamie got custody of the ballpark’s physical facilities staff in the separation agreement.

I’m guessing the thing will be down by the time the team gets back to L.A. for next week’s home opener.

Video: Troy Tulowitzki plays along with a photographer who thought he was a pitcher

Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.

Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:

Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.

Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
