Here's Charley

Tom Hoffarth of the Daily News reports today that the Dodgers will renew the contract for announcer Charley Steiner. I still miss the days when Steiner did SportsCenter on ESPN, but he's one of the better play-by-play men in baseball and it's good to know that he'll continue to back up Vin Scully.

In the meantime, it will be interesting to see which station will be the Dodgers radio affiliate next season. KFWB 980 is reportedly bidding to keep Dodger games, but KABC 790 is rumored to have put their hat in the ring. KABC broadcast Dodger games for 23 years, from 1974 to 1997, and most LA fans have fond memories of tuning to that station on the dial. KSPN 710 is another possibility, as it appears they will lose Angel games.

Phil Wallace | The Lakers front office has a chance to take a superstar in next month's NBA Draft. But if recent history is any guide, there's a strong possibility that they'll take a complete bust.

The best place to watch baseball in Los Angeles is not Dodger Stadium. It’s Jackie Robinson Stadium, the small, elegant home of the UCLA baseball Bruins. Unfortunately for the university, the ballpark occupies 10 acres of the 387-acre Veterans Administration health facility in West Los Angeles, land reserved for housing and treating veterans.
