Jaime Jarrín agrees to multi-year contract extension

LOS ANGELES -- Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrín will return to the Dodgers for a 61st and 62nd season in 2019 and 2020 and has agreed to a multi-year contract extension, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced today.

Jarrín will be available to the media Friday at 5:30 p.m. in the Dodger Stadium Interview Room, prior to his Ring of Honor induction ceremony.

LOS ANGELES -- Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrín will return to the Dodgers for a 61st and 62nd season in 2019 and 2020 and has agreed to a multi-year contract extension, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced today.

Jarrín will be available to the media Friday at 5:30 p.m. in the Dodger Stadium Interview Room, prior to his Ring of Honor induction ceremony.

Said Jarrín, "It seems like it was just yesterday that I was at the Coliseum in 1959 and started my work with the Dodgers, the time goes so fast. I'm still enjoying it just as much as I did 60 years ago. I love what I do, and it's a privilege for me to be able to do it. I have had the opportunity to work with the best of the best, ballplayers, broadcasters and staff, and I have been so fortunate throughout my career. Of course, I have to thank the Dodgers and especially my wife Blanca for her support and for allowing me to do what I love all these years."

"Jaime Jarrín is a Hall of Famer in every sense of the word, and the Dodgers are lucky to have had him behind the mic for the past 60 years as he's chronicled the greatest moments in Los Angeles history with his unique storytelling and iconic style," said Lon Rosen, Dodger Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "We're thrilled that Jaime is returning with this multi-year contract extension and are looking forward to celebrating him Friday night."

On Friday, Jarrín will become the 12th inductee into the Dodgers' Ring of Honor, joining Pee Wee Reese, Tommy Lasorda, Duke Snider, Jim Gilliam, Don Sutton, Walter Alston, Sandy Koufax, Roy Campanella, Jackie Robinson, Don Drysdale and Vin Scully in having their name/number permanently affixed to Dodger Stadium. Fans are encouraged to arrive early for the 6:30 p.m. ceremony.

During the course of his 60-year Dodger career, which began in the club's second season in Los Angeles in 1959, Jarrín has been lauded as one of the all-time great baseball announcers, including his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998 as the recipient of the Ford C. Frick Award. He became only the second Spanish-language announcer to earn that honor, joining Buck Canel. Jarrín is a member of both the Southern California Sports Broadcasters' Association and the California Broadcasters' Association Halls of Fame, and received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, dedicated in September 1998. His other major honors include La Gran Cruz al Merito en El Grado de Comendador received in Ecuador in January 1992, being honored by the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) Foundation with an AFTRA Media and Entertainment Excellence Award in 2011 and earning Hall of Fame recognition by the Associated Press Television-Radio Association (APTRA) in 2011.

#CompleteGamer - Celebrating Bob Gibson in 2018

As part of the campaign, fans are asked to share examples of people that they know who are a #CompleteGamer in their own respective field or vocation. Each week, the team will highlight at least one fan #CompleteGamer and they will receive a special Gibson autographed item from the team.

2018 Yearbook Celebrates Golden Anniversary of Gibson and the Year of the Pitcher

Bob Gibson stood taller than ever in 1968, delivering a masterful mix of shutouts, streaks and strikeouts while his 1.12 ERA raised the bar (and helped lower the mound) for every pitcher who's followed. It was a season for the ages, and on the 50th anniversary of the Hall of Famer's pitching tour-de-force, the 2018 Cardinals Yearbook salutes the man and the season that re-wrote the record books. 

This gorgeous and colorful keepsake features an in-depth Q&A presenting Gibby's personal insight into '68, a game-by-game breakdown of his 34 regular-season and three World Series starts, exclusive recollections of Hall-of-Fame opponents like Hank Aaron, Al Kaline and Billy Williams, and a wide-ranging package of features documenting all of the stories that defined the Year of the Pitcher. Adorned with signature studio and action pictures of the 2018 Cardinals, this yearbook is a complete-game experience for Redbird fans of all ages!

Now on sale at Busch Stadium, fans can purchase this keepsake inside each stadium gate, team store locations, merchandise stands throughout the concourses and Cardinals Authentics shops inside Ballpark Village and Ford Plaza. Also available at major St. Louis area retailers, cardinals.com/yearbook and 314-345-9000.

Mariners extend player development contract with Short-A Everett

Mariners and AquaSox agree to extension through 2022

Seattle Mariners Director of Player Development Andy McKay announced today the extension of the Player Development Contract with the Everett AquaSox, the Mariners Short-A affiliate in the Northwest League. The Player Development Contract, which would have run out at the end of the 2020 season, has been extended to cover the 2021-2022 seasons.

"Partnering with Everett for another four years fulfills multiple goals for us," Mariners Director of Player Development Andy McKay said. "Aside from the geographic convenience, the AquaSox, with leadership of both Danny (Tetzlaff) and Pat (Filippone), provide our players with a first-class environment. Their commitment to our players is evident with the upgrades that they have spearheaded to the ballpark. We will continue to reciprocate by providing the best on-field product that we can while continuing to impact the surrounding community through our community service initiatives."

The Player Development Contract, which would have run out at the end of the 2020 season, has been extended to cover the 2021-2022 seasons.

"Aside from the geographic convenience, the AquaSox, with leadership of both Danny (Tetzlaff) and Pat (Filippone), provide our players with a first-class environment. Their commitment to our players is evident with the upgrades that they have spearheaded to the ballpark. We will continue to reciprocate by providing the best on-field product that we can while continuing to impact the surrounding community through our community service initiatives."

Everett has been affiliated with the Seattle Mariners for 24 seasons, becoming the Mariners affiliate in the Northwest League on September 12, 1994. The AquaSox play their home games at Everett Memorial Stadium, located in Everett, Wash., less than 30 miles north of Seattle. In 24 seasons as the Mariners affiliate, the AquaSox have compiled a 908-914 (.498) record. Since joining the Seattle organization, Everett has qualified for the postseason 7 times, including 6 times over the last 9 seasons (2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 & 2018). In 2010 the AquaSox led the Northwest League with a franchise record tying 49 wins (also: 1987 as San Francisco Giants) on their way to a Northwest League Championship. With the extension, the Mariners and AquaSox will continue to have the longest affiliation pairing of any clubs in the Northwest League. 

Everett has produced numerous Major Leaguers during their affiliation with the Mariners, including helping develop current Mariners RHP Matt Festa, RHP Félix Hernández, RHP Erasmo Ramírez and C Mike Zunino.

"The Mariners and AquaSox have had a stable relationship dating back to 1995 and we look forward to continuing working together for many years to come," said Mariners Executive Vice President & General Manager Jerry Dipoto. "We are in a unique situation having our Northwest affiliate so close to Seattle. The city of Everett and the AquaSox fan-base have always been great supporters of our minor leaguers and the entire Mariners organization. 

The AquaSox wrapped up the 2018 season with a 38-38 overall record, which was T2nd-best overall record in the Northwest League North Division and trailed only the Hillsboro Hops (52-25) and the Vancouver Canadians (40-36) for the best in the league. The AquaSox qualified for a postseason berth after winning the North Division First Half title, but fell the Spokane Indians in the Northwest League North Division Finals.   

The AquaSox featured 21 players selected by Seattle in the 2018 MLB First-Year Player Draft, including C Jake Anchia (7th), RHP Grant Anderson (21st), RHP Joey Gerber (8th), INF Cash Gladfelter (27th), RHP Nolan Hoffman (5th), INF Bobby Honeyman (29th), INF Connor Kopach (25th), OF Charlie McConnell (13th), OF Keegan McGovern (9th), RHP Penn Murfee (33rd), INF Ryne Ogren (12th), LHP Benjamin Onyshko (24th), LHP Michael Plassmeyer (4th), C Cal Raleigh (3rd), OF Ryan Ramiz (23rd), INF Nick Rodriguez (22nd), RHP J.T.

Ellis (2012), Clayton Kershaw (2013-14), Zack Greinke (2015), Utley (2016) and Justin Turner (2017).   

Utley, 39, becomes the second Dodger to win the award twice, joining three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw, who won back-to-back Campanella Awards in 2013 and 2014. Utley was originally acquired by the Dodgers on Aug. 19, 2015 in a trade with the Philadelphia Phillies and subsequently re-signed to one-year contacts in 2016 and 2017, before singing a two-year deal this past offseason. On July 13, during a press conference at Dodger Stadium attended by the entire team, Utley announced that the 2018 campaign would be his last as an active player, citing the desire to become a full-time Dad. One of the most respected leaders and teammates the game has ever known, Dodger fans were treated to his infectious, gritty and clutch style of play over the past four seasons after a legendary career with the Philadelphia Phillies from 2003-15. 

As a true testament to his ability to lead and help the Dodgers in any capacity, Utley won the Campanella Award despite having appeared in 82 games and making just 181 plate appearances. True to form, Utley has battled through injuries to excel in a pinch- hitting role this season, batting .351 (13-for-37) off the bench, which ranks seventh in the National League.  

Utley has reached the World Series three times, winning the championship with Philadelphia in 2008. In his career, he's been named an All-Star six times and won four Silver Slugger awards while amassing 1,885 hits, scoring 1,102 runs, hitting 259 homers and driving in 1,025 runs. He has been hit by the pitch 204 times, which ranks eighth in Major League history.  

The final words to sum up Chase Utley as a teammate come from Dodger President, Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman: 

"He's as good as it gets. The effect he has had throughout. If you think back to 2015, to that point we were one of the worst base-running teams in baseball. We get Utley, and from that point through the end of the season on we were second. It speaks to the effect he can have. He has had as much and as lasting of an impact as I've ever seen a player have on an organization.'' 

Campanella was a three-time National League Most Valuable Player (1951, 1953 and 1955), eight-time All-Star and a member of the 1955 World Championship team. He played in five World Series and his 142 RBI in 1953 set a franchise record, since surpassed by Tommy Davis (153 in 1962). In 1,215 career games during a 10-year career, all with the Dodgers, he batted .276 with 242 home runs and 856 RBI. 

He began his career in the Negro Leagues, establishing himself as one of the top catchers in the league before joining the Dodger organization in 1946. Campanella played for Class B Nashua of the New England League, making that club the first integrated affiliated baseball team in the United States.

On Jan. 29, 1958, just as the Dodgers were making final preparations for their move to Los Angeles, Campanella was involved in a tragic car accident that paralyzed him from the neck down, marking the end of his playing career. On May 7, 1959, a Major League record-setting 93,103 fans filled the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on "Roy Campanella Night" for an exhibition game between the Dodgers and Yankees. 

He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969 and was among the first three Dodgers to have their uniform numbers retired alongside Jackie Robinson and Sandy Koufax. Campanella remained active in the Dodgers' Community Relations Department until his death on June 26, 1993 at the age of 71.
