It all starts here.


Los Angeles said Monday it plans to introduce the 43-year-old at a news conference on Dec. 1."When I put on this uniform as a player, I understood the special responsibility to honor those that played before me as well as the amazing bond between the Dodgers and their fans," Roberts said in a statement. "I feel that I have now come full circle in my career and there is plenty of unfinished business left in LA."He called the franchise "groundbreaking" for having such players as Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Sandy Koufax, Maury Wills, Fernando Valenzuela and Hideo Nomo.Roberts' father is black and his mother is Japanese. Roberts was born in Okinawa, Japan, where his father served in the U.S. Marines. He becomes the third minority manager in the majors, joining the Washington Nationals' Dusty Baker and the Atlanta Braves' Fredi Gonzalez.Roberts said his hiring is "the opportunity of a lifetime."

I hope Roberts is the right guy for the job, he's a total unknown as a Manager. Little doubt however he'll be an improvement on Mattingly. Go Blue!
