Now you can carve Vin Scully’s face into a pumpkin

Just in time for Halloween, the Dodgers’ website has posted free, downloadable pumpkin-carving stencils, my favorite of which is this one featuring Vin Scully:

I also liked this note on the bottom of the page:

CARVING YOUR PUMPKIN

** Kids: Make sure a parent or adult is helping you with this activity! **

Tools:

To carve your pumpkin, you can use a pumpkin carving kit from your local grocery store or you can use the following common household tools:

Spoon

Serrated knife

Pin or nail

Paring knife

I’d like to see some kid try to carve Scully’s face into a pumpkin with a spoon. It’ll end up looking like Tommy Lasorda.

Houston’s Yordan Alvarez leaves game with ankle discomfort

HOUSTON — Houston slugger Yordan Alvarez left the Astros’ game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the fifth inning with left ankle discomfort.

Alvarez, who is tied for second in the American League with 37 home runs, rolled his ankle running out of the box on a single in the first inning.

He looked to be in some pain as he jogged to first base and was checked on briefly by manager Dusty Baker and a trainer before remaining in the game. Serving as the designated hitter, he struck out in the third inning before being replaced by pinch-hitter David Hensley for his at-bat in the fifth.
