The subject of three different stories, including a look at his National League Most Valuable Player candidacy, Clayton Kershaw graces the cover of the September issue of Dodger Insider magazine — which also boasts a feature you’ll want to hang onto for some time to come.
“Take a Number” is a 15-page special section offering the history behind every Dodger uniform number from 00 to 99, with all kinds of information historical and trivial.
Who was the greatest player to wear No. 6, Steve Garvey or Carl Furillo? Who wore No. 39 before Roy Campanella — and after? What is the all-time best Dodger team by numbers? All that and more can be found in this detailed feature. (Preview the first two pages by clicking the image at the bottom of this post.)
Overall, there are more than two dozen stories in this edition of Dodger Insider — the biggest of the year — including a feature on how deeply Zack Greinke is a student of the game, the myth and reality behind new defensive stats, inside-the-game and historical stories, photos, games for all ages and much more.
Buy it at Dodger Stadium or by going to dodgers.com/magazine. The digital version of the issue should be available next week.
