FRANK H. McCOURT, JR.


OWNER & CHAIRMAN

exeCutives

Frank H. McCourt Jr. became the fourth owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers after receiving unanimous approval from Major League Baseball on January 29, 2004. McCourt has established four goals - to field a championship-caliber team each and every year; to provide the fans with the best experience in sports; to give back to the community in a meaningful way; and to always treat one another with integrity and respect. Under his stewardship, the Dodgers have reached postseason play four of the last seven seasons, joining the Phillies and Cardinals as the only National League teams to accomplish that feat. The 2009 club had the best record in the National League, won an NL West title for the second consecutive season, and swept its firstround opponent for the second time in as many years, reaching back-to-back National League Championship Series for the first time in 31 years (1977-78). Prior to McCourt purchasing the team, the franchise had not reached the NLCS or won a postseason game in the previous 15 years. The teams success on the field can be attributed primarily to the organizations commitment to finding top amateur talent around the globe, developing those players to play baseball The Dodger Way and to supplement that talent through free agency and trades, when necessary. In addition to the teams performance, the significant enhancements to Dodger Stadium have contributed to record attendance, as the teams five highest attendance marks have all coming during his tenure. McCourt has invested $150 million in stadium improvements designed to allow Dodger Stadium, which is entering its 50th season, to thrive in modern times. Recent improvements include replacing all of the seats in the stadium bowl; installing a new playing surface, including drainage improvements; renovating concourses with new and expanded concessions and other amenities; reconfiguring the parking lots to improve traffic flow (including a new transportation center); doubling the size of the Dugout Club; renovating the Stadium Club; creating two new Baseline Box Clubs; making significant upgrades to the video in-game experience; and completing numerous structural and voluntary seismic upgrades. In 2009, another of McCourts visions became a reality with the creation of Camelback Ranch Glendale, a state-of-the-art year-round training facility in Arizona that brought Dodger Spring Training close to Southern California fans for the first time. The fans responded by setting a Cactus League record for attendance. The site was honored by Ballpark Digest with an Editors Choice award, as the publication called Camelback Ranch a bold re-imagining of the Spring Training complex, bringing in the feel of a classic training camp with all the amenities of today... Camelback Ranch-Glendale provides plenty of great memory-making moments for fans old and young. In 2008, McCourt enhanced the teams legacy of both embracing change and bringing baseball to other parts of the world by playing the first Major League Baseball games (exhibition) in China. Last year, the Dodgers returned to the Far East for a pair of exhibition games in Taiwan. McCourts commitment to the community is realized through the Dodgers Dream Foundation, which focuses on four key bases first, recreation; second, education; third, health; and home plate, the environment. Each base has a signature program: the Dodgers Dreamfields initiative has built or refurbished 10 baseball fields around Los Angeles and is committed to building another 40; the Dodgers Scholars program is a collaboration with the Jackie Robinson Foundation, and provides 42 college scholarships per year; ThinkCure! is the clubs official charity, in partnership with City of Hope and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles, from which nearly $1 million has already been granted; and to complete the community Frank McCourt meets with high school athletes at an April diamond, the organization has made a 2010 event in which he and other Los Angeles civic leaders commitment to the environment and will made a commitment to Save our Sports.

In addition to the front office staff and management team, McCourt relies on the guidance of three Special Advisors -- former pitching star and social pioneer Don Newcombe (appointed in 2009); medical pioneer Dr. Frank Jobe (appointed in 2008); and legendary Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda (appointed in 2006). While McCourts efforts have greatly benefited the franchise over the past seven years, they expand beyond Dodger Stadium. In September 2008, McCourt purchased the Los Angeles Marathon with the goal of turning it into a world class race. Last year, he delivered a new stadium-to-sea course that led runners past a number of Los Angeles landmarks from Dodger Stadium through West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Veterans Administration property and Santa Monica. For his efforts, McCourt was honored by the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce in 2010. In 1977, the Boston native founded The McCourt Company (now the McCourt Group), which specializes in the development of major commercial real estate projects. His real estate development roots span five generations, and his family has been associated with many major Boston real estate projects, including the citys Back Bay, Logan Airport, and Bostons waterfront. McCourt earned a reputation as a visionary leader and influential businessman, leaving a positive and lasting impact on the city of Boston and revolutionizing Bostons new Seaport. Today, this booming area boasts a new convention center, hotels, offices, residential buildings and numerous commercial, government and cultural facilities. The McCourt Company moved to Los Angeles in 2006. McCourt serves on the Board of Directors of Georgetown University, from which he graduated in 1975, and co-chaired Georgetown Universitys Third Century Campaign (New England Region), which raised more than $1 billion for the university. He is active in an array of educational, trade, civic and charitable organizations, including serving as President of the Dodgers Dream Foundation, and Founding Chairman of ThinkCure!. McCourt has four sons Drew, Travis, Casey and Gavin whom he has often said he expects will someday take over as stewards of the Dodger franchise.

THE CHAIRMAN

Regarded by many as baseballs most popular ambassador, Tommy Lasorda begins his 62nd season in the Dodger organization and sixth as Special Advisor to the Chairman. He was named Vice President in 1996 after retiring as manager, a position he held for the previous 20 seasons. Lasorda assumed all player personnel responsibilities when he was named the Dodgers interim General Manager on June 22, 1998. He relinquished his General Manager duties when he was promoted to Senior Vice President on Sept. 11, 1998. In his current position, Lasorda reports directly to the Office of the Chairman, serving as an advisor on all areas of the Dodger organization for Owner & Chairman Frank McCourt. Lasordas current responsibilities include scouting, evaluating and teaching minor league players, acting as an advisor and ambassador for the Dodgers international affiliations, and representing the franchise at more than 100 speaking engagements and appearances to various charities, private groups and military personnel each year. He has spoken to troops at more than 40 military bases around the world, including a five-country goodwill tour in 2009 with Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. They visited troops throughout the Middle East. Lasorda compiled a 1,599-1,439 record and won two World Championships, four National League pennants and eight division titles in an extraordinary 20-year career as the Dodgers manager. He ranks 17th with 1,599 wins and 16th with 3,038 games managed in Major League history. His 16 wins in 30 NL Championship Series games managed were the most of any manager at the time of his retirement in 1996. His 61 postseason games managed ranks fifth all-time behind Joe Torre (138), Bobby Cox (136), Tony LaRussa (107), and Casey Stengel (63). He is only one of five managers to manage the same team for 20 years or more, joining Walt Alston, Connie Mack, John McGraw and Bobby Cox. Lasordas role in the globalization of the game of baseball is now more evident than ever before, as Commissioner Selig appointed him as the Official Ambassador of the inaugural World Baseball Classic in 2006, and again for the 2009 Classic that was played at Dodger Stadium. In that capacity, Lasorda served as a spokesperson for the tournament and continued his travels around the globe to promote the game of baseball, as he has visited 28 countries in his lifetime - Australia, Canada, Columbia, China, Chinese Taipei, Cuba, Denmark, England, the Dominican Republic, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Monaco, Norway, Panama, Puerto Rico, Scotland, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Venezuela, Bermuda, Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkey, Ireland and throughout the United States. In 2008, he was awarded with the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette by the Emperor of Japan for his contributions to Japanese baseball. He has made countless trips to Japan over the years, serving as a key liaison between the Dodgers and the Orix Buffaloes in their friendship agreement. Lasorda was also the Dodger ambassador for other friendship agreements that the Dodgers had wit other Asian teams including the LG Twins from Korea and the Sinon Bulls from Taiwan. He also threw out the first pitch in the China Baseball Leagues first World Series in 2002. As baseballs ambassador, Lasorda was called upon by Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig to star in an ad campaign on behalf of Major League Baseball during the 2006 postseason. The campaign, entitled Tommys Tough Love, featured Lasorda in a tuxedo, motivating fans to continue to watch baseball even though their favorite team was not in postseason play. In 2009 Lasorda had his portrait installed in the Smithsonian Institutions National Portrait Gallery. The portrait, which measures 60x50 inches, was painted by Everett Raymond Kinstler, and was presented to the Smithsonian as part of the celebration of his 60th season with the Dodgers. During his six-decade career, Lasorda has met seven U.S. Presidents - Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush, who asked Lasorda to serve as a delegate to the U.S. National Day at the World Exposition in Aichi, Japan in June 2005. The World Exposition was not the first time that President Bush has called upon Lasorda for his assistance, as the Hall of Fame manager participated in the festivities surrounding the Presidents inauguration in January 2005. Two months later, Lasorda accompanied Frank McCourt, in addition to the family of Jackie Robinson, during a visit to the White House to represent the Dodgers in a ceremony that posthumously awarded Robinson with the Congressional Gold Medal. In 2007, Lasorda joined Dodger legend Don Newcombe in leading a contingent of Little Leaguers from Los Angeles to Washington D.C. for a tee-ball game on the South Lawn of the White House. In 1997, Lasorda was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee in his first year of eligibility. He was the 14th manager and 52nd Dodger inducted into the Hall of Fame. In 2007, Lasorda was asked by the Hall of Fame to be a member of the committee on managers and umpires, leading to the elections of Billy Southworth and Dick Williams to Cooperstown. He served the Hall in the same capacity in 2009 that led to the election of Whitey Herzog and Doug Harvey. Though the National Baseball Hall of Fame is his most prestigious, Lasorda has been enshrined in 17 different Halls of Fame, including the Chattanooga Professional Baseball HOF (2010), Brooklyn Dodgers HOF (2009), Philadelphia Sports HOF (2009), Ogden Professional Baseball HOF (2009), Albuquerque Baseball HOF

Lasordas uniform number (2) was retired by the Dodgers on Aug. 15, 1997 and the main street that leads to the entrance of Dodgertown in Vero Beach, FL was renamed Tommy Lasorda Lane on March 5, 1997. He also threw out the Tommy Lasorda visits with soldiers during the military batting first pitch in Game 7 of the 1997 World practice on the field at Dodger Stadium on Veterans Day 2010. Series. During the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, Lasorda managed an underdog United States team to the Gold Medal over the highly favored Cuban National team just five days after celebrating his 73rd birthday. The Olympic Gold Medal, which Lasorda considers his greatest professional achievement, marked his return to the dugout after his retirement in 1996. Lasorda posted a 3-1 record as the NL manager in four All-Star Games. He joined St. Louis Gabby Street (1930-31) as the only managers in NL history to win league titles in his first two seasons when he led the Dodgers to titles in 1977-78. Lasorda also managed nine of the Dodgers 16 Rookies of the Year, more than any other big league skipper in history. Prior to replacing Hall of Famer Walter Alston as manager on Sept. 29, 1976, Lasorda spent four seasons in Los Angeles on Alstons coaching staff from 1973-76. He spent eight seasons as a manager in the Dodgers minor league system at Pocatello (1965), Ogden (1966-68), Spokane (1969-71) and Albuquerque (1972). Lasorda also spent four years as a Dodger scout after retiring as a player following the 1960 season. An astounding 75 players Lasorda managed in the minor leagues went on to play in the Majors and he serves as a godfather to nearly a dozen of their children. Lasorda compiled an 0-4 record and 6.52 ERA as a left-handed pitcher in parts of three Major League seasons with the Brooklyn Dodgers (1954-55) and Kansas City Athletics (1956).

DR. FRANK JOBE


SPECIAL ADVISOR TO THE CHAIRMAN

exeCutives

A legend in the field of medicine and baseball, Dr. Frank Jobe enters his fourth season as a Special Advisor to the Chairman and 47th season in the Dodger organization. Amazingly, more than 35 years have passed since Jobe made history and altered the sport forever. It was 1974 when Dodger pitcher Tommy John was diagnosed with a ruptured medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his left elbow, an injury that previously had no cure. That is, until Sept. 25 when Jobe tried a procedure in which he removed a tendon from Johns forearm and repaired his elbow. John, who had won 124 games prior to the operation, went on to pitch 14 years after the operation, compiling 164 more victories in that time, without ever missing a start due to elbow problems. Since then, Jobe has performed more than 1,000 Tommy John surgeries on pitchers of every level, helping to resurrect the careers of countless big leaguers and his fellowship program at the Kerlan-Jobe clinic has trained more than 250 fellows over the years. On Feb. 21, 2008, the Dodgers announced that he had been promoted to Special Advisor to Chairman Frank McCourt and he took part in a special pregame ceremony at Holman Stadium in Vero Beach, FL. Jobe was honored again in front of the home crowd at Dodger Stadium on Sept. 23, 2008 in a ceremony that included his two most famous patients, John and former Dodger Orel Hershiser, among others. Dr. Jobes contribution to the game is only bested by the exemplary character he has bestowed upon our organization for more nearly 50 years, McCourt said. If ever a person had Hall of Fame credentials, it is this history-making medical pioneer. Of course, since Jobes experiment on John, several things have changed about the procedure. What was once a four-hour surgery can now be done in about an hour and the rate of recovery has increased exponentially. Though Jobe originally put Johns chances of returning to the Major Leagues at less than five percent, Jobe now estimates that 92 to 95 percent of patients will return as good, if not better, than prior to the surgery. In fact, the procedure has become so valuable that in recent years, players have signed multi-year contracts just months after they have the surgery in expectation of a high-level return. In honor of the 30th anniversary of his ground-breaking efforts, the Dodgers honored Jobe on March 31, 2004 prior to a Spring Training game in Vero Beach, FL and again during the year at Dodger Stadium. Jobe, who began his association with the Dodgers in 1964 and has been their orthopedic doctor since 1968, found himself in the right place again 16 years after saving Johns career, as he reconstructed the right shoulder of former Cy Young Award winner Orel Hershiser, another procedure that had never been successfully performed on a Major League pitcher. Hershisers rehabilitation was a success and he presented Jobe with the game ball from his 100th career victory, which came in 1991, his first win after the surgery. Former Dodger Darren Dreifort made a similar gesture while rehabilitating at Dodger Stadium. His trophy featured a plastered replica of Dr. Jobes hands holding a surgical instrument with a handwritten message from the Dodger pitcher. When you first begin working out after the surgery, its frustrating and it gets to be monotonous, said Dreifort. But the flip side is without the surgery and Dr. Jobe, you wouldnt be out there playing catch. Jobe, a native of North Carolina who studied at Loma Linda Medical School and did his residency at Los Angeles County hospital, has often been mentioned as a candidate for enshrinement in the National Baseball Hall of Fame, alongside other non-playing personnel like former Dodger owner Walter OMalley. A review of the careers hes rescued lends credence to the argument. The most satisfying feeling in medicine is to watch a patient from the time of the injury until hes well and back to 100 percent, said Jobe. This is very satisfying because its something I took part in from the beginning. Also, its interesting that sports surgery in particular really wasnt developed until the late 1950s. So when Tommy came along in the 1970s, there was an opportunity and I happened to be the right guy in the right place.

SPECIAL ADVISOR TO

exeCutives

THE CHAIRMAN

Don Newcombe enters his 56th season in the Dodger organization and 41st year as the teams director of community relations. In 2009, he added a new title as Special Advisor to Chairman Frank McCourt. Still the only man in baseball history to win the sports three major honors - Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award - Newcombe played an often overlooked role in the countrys civil rights movement, along with Dodger teammates Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella. Newcombe, 83, spent the first seven years of his 10-year big league career with the Brooklyn Dodgers before joining the franchise in its move to Los Angeles in 1958. The right-handed pitcher helped the Dodgers win their first World Championship in 1955, leading the National League that season with an .800 winning percentage (20-5). That season, he also became the first NL pitcher to hit seven home runs in a season. The New Jersey native was a four-time National League All-Star and registered a record of 149-90 with 1,129 strikeouts and a 3.56 ERA, 136 complete games and 24 shutouts. He pitched in three World Series and at 22 years old in 1949, he became the second rookie ever to start the opening game of a World Series, striking out 11 Yankees in eight innings. In 1951, Newcombe won 20 games for the first time in his career and then missed the following two seasons while serving his country during the Korean War. He later won 20 games again in 1955 and led the league with 27 wins in 1956. Following his Major League career, Newcombe signed with the Chunichi Dragons of Japans Nippon Professional Baseball in 1962 and became the first former Major League player to play in the Japanese League. He batted .262 with 12 homers in 279 at-bats before ending his playing career. In 1980, his final year of eligibility, Newcombe received 59 votes (15.3 percent) for enshrinement in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. When he signed with the Newark Eagles of the Negro Leagues in 1945, Newcombe had no idea he was on the verge of changing the course of sports history. Dodger President Branch Rickey had decided to integrate Major League Baseball, as an unwritten rule had prevented blacks from playing since the 1880s. Rickey secretly began scouting players from the Negro Leagues and he eventually signed Jackie Robinson, catcher Roy Campanella and Newcombe. In 1946, the trio broke the minor league color barrier as Robinson played at Triple-A Montreal while Newcombe and Campanella were standouts for the Class B Nashua Dodgers of the New England League. Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 and he won National League Rookie of the Year honors. Campanella was promoted to the Dodgers in 1948, and Newcombe finally arrived in May 1949. From 1949 to 1956, the Dodgers played in five World Series and narrowly missed the playoffs in 1950 and 1951. While the Dodgers were winners on the field, the trio still faced challenges off the field. There were death threats, isolation, degradation and insults hurled by fans and opponents, along with snide comments from certain Dodger teammates. Throughout the early 1950s, there were some hotels and restaurants that wouldnt serve black players during the season. After his career, Newcombe had a fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King, just 28 days before his assassination in 1968. Concluding a tour of speech-making, protests marches and peaceful demonstrations, King had dinner at Newcombes home in Los Angeles before King returned to Atlanta. According to Newcombe, King said, Don, youll never know how easy you and Jackie and (Larry) Doby and Campy (Roy Campanella) made it for me to do my job by what you did on the baseball field. Ten years after his retirement in 1960, Newcombe started the Dodgers Community Relations Department in 1970. He makes dozens of appearances throughout the Los Angeles area each season, speaking to youngsters and participating in the Dodgers Alumni Association. In that role, he has Don Newcombe is honored on the field on helped numerous people in their battles against substance Jackie Robinson Day, April 15, 2009. abuse.

NED COLLETTI
GENERAL MANAGER

exeCutives

Ned Colletti enters his sixth season as General Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, a position to which he was appointed on Nov. 16, 2005. In this capacity, he is responsible for overseeing the teams baseball operations, including all scouting, player personnel and player development. Colletti is the 10th general manager in Los Angeles Dodger history and is entering his 30th year in Major League Baseball. During his five years at the helm of the club, the team has reached the postseason three times, making him the first general manager in Dodger history to accomplish that feat. Colletti reached 400 victories as a GM in 2010, hitting that milestone in 744 games, which was faster than every GM in Dodger history besides Buzzie Bavasi (723 games). Since Colletti joined the Dodgers, inheriting a team that finished with a 71-91 record, the team has posted a 429-381 record (.530), the second-best mark in the National League behind the Phillies (.563). Among NL West opponents, the Dodgers lead second-place Colorado by 14.5 games during the five-year span. Among the 30 current Major League GMs, only Brian Cashman, Theo Epstein, Billy Beane and Doug Melvin constructed teams that reached the postseason in at least three of their first five years. Most recently, Topps named the Dodgers as Organization of the Year in 2010. The prestigious award dates back to 1966 and highlights the Major League team that has shown outstanding performance, depth and talent throughout their Major and Minor League teams. Since joining the Dodgers, Colletti has been charged with competing for the postseason each year while keeping the teams abundance of young talent intact for the future. To that end, he has put together a team for 2011 centered around a core group of players under the age of 28 while surrounding them with established veterans under first-year manager and former American League MVP, Don Mattingly, whom Colletti hired. During the offseason, Colletti signed 10 free agents - including four starting pitchers - to significantly upgrade the pitching staff. In addition, he inked infielder Juan Uribe and reliever Matt Guerrier to three-year deals to solidify the roster. Colletti has quickly become known throughout the game for his success at obtaining talent during the season, particularly at the trade deadline. Among the key contributors he has added in midseason over the past several years are three likely Hall of Famers Manny Ramirez, Greg Maddux (twice) and Jim Thome as well as veterans Ted Lilly, Scott Podsednik, Ryan Theriot, Octavio Dotel, Casey Blake, Vicente Padilla, George Sherrill, Ronnie Belliard and Jon Garland. Collettis first trade as GM netted outfielder Andre Ethier, while he continued to hold onto several key players who have become the nucleus of the team, including All-Stars Jonathan Broxton, Chad Billingsley and Hong-Chih Kuo, as well as Matt Kemp, James Loney and Clayton Kershaw, among others. Collettis acquisition of Ramirez has been deemed by many as the greatest trade in Dodger franchise history, as he traded for the perennial All-Star just minutes before the trade deadline in 2008. Ramirez went on to put together two of the greatest months in team history before continuing his torrid hitting during the postseason. That trade and the subsequent play of Ramirez was named the top moment in Los Angeles sports in 2008 by the Los Angeles Sports Council. In 2009, the Dodgers finished the regular season with the best record in the National League for the first time since 1983 and swept the National League Division Series for the second consecutive season to reach the NLCS in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1977-78. In 2008, the Dodgers had won the NL West and swept the Cubs in the Division Series to reach the NLCS, capturing their first postseason series victory since their World Championship season of 1988. Colletti and his staff have focused heavily on developing top talent, as they have executed an offseason Player l.a.

Since coming to Los Angeles, Colletti has renewed the clubs focus on finding talent all around the globe, including in Asia, where he signed free agents Takashi Saito in 2006 and former All-Star Hiroki Kuroda in 2007. The team also inked Robert Boothe, its first amateur signing from Japan and solidified its roots in China, where the Dodgers played the first-ever Major League exhibition games in March 2008.

LOGAN WHITE
ASSISTANT GENERAL MANAGER, SCOUTING

exeCutives

Logan White begins his 10th season with the Dodgers and fifth as Assistant General Manager, Scouting. In this capacity, Whites primary responsibilities are overseeing the organizations amateur and international scouting efforts, including the annual June First-Year Player Draft, along with assisting the GM in various capacities. In 2010, Topps named the Dodgers as Organization of the Year. The prestigious award dates back to 1966 and highlights the Major League team that has shown outstanding performance, depth and talent throughout their Major and Minor League teams. Prior to being promoted to Assistant GM in 2007, White served as the Director of Amateur Scouting for the Dodgers for five seasons. In that role, he headed up the draft selections or signings of 22 players, including three All-Stars, who have appeared in the Major Leagues for the Dodgers over the past four seasons - Tony Abreu, Chad Billingsley, Jonathan Broxton, Blake DeWitt, Scott Elbert, A.J. Ellis, Chin-lung Hu, Eric Hull, Kenley Jansen, Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw, Andy LaRoche, Brent Leach, James Loney, Russell Martin, James McDonald, Russ Mitchell, Xavier Paul, Eric Stults, Ramon Troncoso, Cory Wade and Delwyn Young. Along with his staff of amateur scouts, Whites history of success in the draft helped lead to the Dodgers being named Baseball Americas 2006 Organization of the Year. With White in charge of amateur scouting the Dodgers have been able to build a club that has a core of homegrown talent and has reached the NLCS twice in the past three seasons. The Dodgers June 2004 First-Year Player draft was rated by Baseball America as the best draft in the National League and second best in baseball. Its 2003 draft was tabbed as the best in the Major Leagues by the publication and its 2002 Draft was rated as the fourth-best draft in baseball. The Dodgers were the only team to have their draft rated in the top five in each of those three seasons. Right-handed pitcher Zach Lee, the clubs first-round pick last season, was considered a Top 10 talent who had committed to LSU to play quarterback, but White and General Manager Ned Colletti convinced him to sign with the Dodgers and he quickly was tabbed as one of the organizations top prospects by Baseball America. Lee was the eighth pitcher taken with the Dodgers first overall pick in the nine drafts under White since 2002, with the lone exception being Loney, another high school pitching phenom, who was drafted as a first baseman and has become a fixture on the big league club. The strategy has paid dividends, as the team has graduated several draftees to the Major Leagues, including Billingsley, Broxton, Kershaw and Elbert while a plethora of pitching talent remains in the minor leagues, including Lee and fellow first-round draft choices Aaron Miller (2009), Ethan Martin (2008) and Chris Withrow (2007), among others. The Dodgers scouting success hasnt been limited to the first few rounds, either, as the teams 17th-round pick in 2002, Martin, emerged as a two-time All-Star catcher, while Kemp, a sixth-round selection, earned Gold Glove and Silver Slugger honors in 2009. In addition to his work at the amateur level, White played a significant role in the signing of Takashi Saito, a non-roster invitee in 2006 who became one of the games top closers, as well as the scouting and signing of right-hander Hiroki Kuroda, who joined the Dodgers in 2008 following a successful professional career in Japan. Prior to joining the Dodgers, White spent seven years with the Baltimore Orioles as the West Coast Supervisor with responsibilities including overseeing all area scouts from the Western part of the United States, as well as evaluating players in Canada and Australia. Whites scouting experience is extensive, as he served as the West Coast Supervisor for the San Diego Padres from 1993-95, an area scout with Baltimore from 1990-92 and an associate scout with the Seattle Mariners from 1988-89. He was a minor league pitcher in the Seattle Mariners organization from 1984-87 and was signed by Jeff Malinoff. Originally from Portales, NM, White graduated from Western New Mexico University with honors and was an Academic All-American in 1984. In 1996, he was inducted into the Western New Mexico University Hall of Fame. White, his wife Deena and son, Logan, Jr., reside in Phoenix, AZ.

In a 2010 LA Times fan poll, he was voted as the sixth greatest all-time Los Angeles Dodger player. A native of Tampa, FL, Garvey played 193 consecutive errorless games at first base to set a Major League record and his eight and a half seasons alongside fellow Dodger infielders Davey Lopes, Bill Russell and Ron Cey is a record almost certain to remain in perpetuity. In 1980, Garvey, Ron Cey, Reggie Smith and Dusty Baker gave the Dodgers and Major League Baseball its first 30-home run quartet. The most dramatic moment of his career was his game-winning home run in the ninth inning of the decisive Game 4 of the 1984 NL Championship Series which beat the Chicago Cubs and propelled the San Diego Padres to their first-ever National League Pennant and World Series appearance. It marked the fifth time that Garvey would play in the Fall Classic, including appearances with the Dodgers in 1974, 1977, 1978 and 1981, when he helped the franchise capture its fifth World Championship. From 1993-98, he served as an analyst for CBS coverage of the College World Series and since 1988, he has owned his own company, Garvey Communications, and is also a highly sought-after motivational speaker, traveling both domestically and abroad to speak at corporate functions. A father of seven children, Garvey and his wife, Candace, reside in Los Angeles.

Ron Cey begins his 30th season in the Dodger organization and his 15th year as a member of the front office. In this capacity, he makes numerous appearances on behalf of the team in the community and in conjunction with the clubs corporate sponsors. Cey, 63, spent 17 seasons in the Major Leagues, including 12 with the Dodgers from 1971-82. Nicknamed The Penguin, he was a six-time National League All-Star and is the franchises all-time home run leader among third basemen with 228. He retired as the Los Angeles Dodgers all-time home run leader, a mark that was surpassed by Eric Karros. A lifetime .261 hitter with 316 home runs and 1,139 RBI in 2,073 games, Cey will forever have his name etched in Dodger lore for his performance against the Yankees in the 1981 World Series, when he batted .350 with six RBI to earn co-MVP honors as the Dodgers captured their fifth World Championship. Cey spent eight and a half seasons alongside Bill Russell, Davey Lopes and Steve Garvey, as the Dodger infielders set a record that will likely never be broken. In 1980, Cey, Steve Garvey, Reggie Smith and Dusty Baker gave the Dodgers and Major League Baseball its first 30-home run quartet. In a 2010 LA Times fan poll, he was voted as the twelfth greatest all-time Los Angeles Dodger player. The Tacoma native attended Washington State University and was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the third round of the 1968 amateur draft. He made his big league debut on Sept. 3, 1971 and subsequently appeared in four World Series with the Dodgers (1974, 1977, 1978 and 1981). He and his wife, Fran, reside in Woodland Hills and have two children, Dan and Amanda.

INFLAMMATION: the bodys natural response to injury in which the injury site might display various degrees of pain, swelling, heat, redness and/or loss of function. LABRUM: an edge, rim or lip-shaped structure found in the shoulder joint. LIGAMENT: band of fibrous tissue that connects bone to bone or bone to cartilage and supports and strengthens joints. MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI): imaging procedure in which a radio frequency pulse causes certain electrical elements of the injured tissue to react to this pulse and through this process a computer display and permanent film establish a visual image. MRI does not require radiation and is very useful in the diagnosis of soft tissue, disc and meniscus injuries. MENISCECTOMY: an intra-articular surgical procedure of the knee by which all or part of the damaged meniscus is removed. MENISCUS: crescent-shaped cartilage, usually pertaining to the knee joint; also known as cartilage. There are two menisci in the knee, medial and lateral. These work to absorb weight within the knee and provide stability. METACARPALS: five long bones of the hand running from the wrist to the fingers. METATARSALS: five long bones of the foot, running from the ankle to the toes. PATELLA TENDINITIS: inflammation of the patellar ligament; also known as jumpers knee. PATELLOFEMORAL JOINT: articulation of the kneecap and femur. Inflammation of this joint can occur through: 1) acute injury to the patella, 2) overuse from excessive running particularly if there is an associated knee weakness, 3) chronic wear and tear of the knee, 4) as a result of poor foot mechanics. Patellofemoral irritation can lead to chondromalancia, which in its most chronic condition, could require surgery. PHLEBITIS: inflammation of a vein. PLICA: fold of tissue in the joint capsule and a common result of knee injury. POSTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT (PCL): a primary stabilizing ligament of the knee that provides significant stability and prevents displacement of the tibia backward within the knee joint. A complete tear of this ligament necessitating reconstruction could require up to 12 months of rehabilitation. RECONSTRUCTION: surgical rebuilding of a joint using natural, artificial or transplanted materials. ROTATOR CUFF: comprised of four muscles in the shoulder area that can be irritated by overuse. The muscles are the supraspinatus (most commonly injured), infraspinatus, teres minor and subscapularis. ROTATOR CUFF IMPINGEMENT SYNDROME: a microtrauma or overuse injury caused by stress, and the four stages are: 1) tendinitis with temporary thickening of the bursa and rotator cuff; 2) fiber dissociation in the tendon with permanent thickening of the bursa and scar formation; 3) a partial rotator cuff tear of less than one cm and 4) a complete tear of one cm or more SCAPULA: shoulder blade. SCIATICA: irritation of the sciatic nerve resulting in pain or tingling running down the inside of the leg. SCIATIC NERVE: major nerve that carries impulses for muscular action and sensations between the low back and thigh and lower leg; it is the longest nerve in the body. SHIN SPLINT: a catch-all syndrome describing pain in the shin that is not a fracture or tumor and cannot be defined otherwise. SPONDYLITIS: inflammation of one or more vertebrae. SPONDYLOLISTHESIS: forward displacement of one vertebra over another below it due to a developmental defect in the vertebrae. SPONDYLOSIS: abnormal vertebral fixation or immobility. SPRAIN: injury resulting from a stretch or twist of the joint and causes various degrees of stretch or tear to the muscle or tendon tissue. STRAIN: injury resulting from a pull or torsion to the muscle or tendon that causes various degrees of stretch or tear to the muscle or tendon tissue. STRESS FRACTURE: a hair-line type break in a bone caused by overuse. STRESS X-RAY: a continual x-ray taken when a portion of the body is stressed to its maximum in order to determine joint stability. This is a test utilized in some ankle injuries. SUBLAXATION: partial dislocation of a joint. The term usually implies that the joint can return to its normal position without formal reduction. TARSALS: a group of seven bones of the foot consisting of the calcaneus, talus, cuboid and three cuneiform bones. TENDINITIS: inflammation of the tendon and/or tendon sheath, caused by chronic overuse or sudden injury. TENDON: tissue that connects muscle to bone. THORACIC OUTLET COMPRESSION SYNDROME: a neuro-vascular disorder of the upper extremity common in throwing. TOMOGRAPH: a special type of x-ray apparatus that demonstrates an organ or tissue at a particular depth. TRANSVERSE PROCESS: small lateral projection off the right and left side of each vertebra that functions as an attachment site for muscles and ligaments of the spine. TRIANGULAR CARTILAGE: a connective tissue characterized by its nonvascularity and firm consistency; located on the little finger side of the wrist. ULNAR NERVE: nerve in the elbow commonly irritated by excessive throwing. WRIST: the junction between the two forearm bones (radius and ulna) and the eight wrist bones (trapezium, capitate, hamate, pisiform, trequetral, lunate and scaphoid).

Since 1981, the Dodgers have selected only 11 players in the Rule 5 draft and only four of those players have made the Opening Day roster, including Carlos Monasterios, who accomplished that feat in 2010. Monasterios and D.J. Houlton are the only two that remained with the big league club for their entire rookie seasons, as the other two players, Frank Lankford (1998) and Jose Antonio Nunez (2001) were both offered back to their original club before the All-Star Break.
