Although the World Series will be completed by Oct. 29 at the latest, and the Los Angeles Dodgers haven’t played since being eliminated in the NLDS, your Halloween can have a Boys in Blue feel to it.
Just over one week after releasing a Vin Scully stencil template for pumpkin carving, the Dodgers made templates for Yasiel Puig, Tommy Lasorda and both of their distinguished logos available for download.
Puig showed improvement in his first full season with the Dodgers, particularly in the outfield where he reduced the number of times he overthrew the cutoff man. Puig’s ability to play center field was key in the Dodgers’ settling on an outfield that allowed Matt Kemp to become an everyday player in right field.
Although the template for Lasorda shows him smiling, he was best known for his fiery persona and never-say-quit attitude. He managed the Dodgers to two World Series titles with the last one coming in 1988, which is also the most recent World Series win for the Dodgers.
Lasorda remains connected to the team and is often seen sitting with Magic Johnson and other members of the Guggenheim Baseball Group behind home plate at Dodgers’ home games. With the 2014 season in the books, the Dodgers’ 2015 campaign begins April 6 against the San Diego Padres.
