Last night the Dodgers honored owner Magic Johnson by distributing his bobblehead to fans in attendance. The former “Showtime” star is now in his first full season as Dodgers owner and hopes to bring the city of Los Angeles its first World Series title since 1988.
The former Laker is very excited about the direction the franchise has taken as he’s helped make the Dodgers players in the trade, free agent and international markets. Since being part of the ownership group that purchased the Dodgers, the team has had an amazing turn around and they are primed for a late postseason run.
In an interview with MLB.com, Magic said the Dodgers have one of the best rotations in baseball and with the excitement Yasiel Puig has brought to the team this season, he believes they have the defense and hitting to get through the National League.
