Since I can barely keep up — meaning not in the least bit — with the current trendsetters in American pop music, I must admit that I have never heard of Tiffany Hwang, nor am I familiar with her nine-member, all-girl super-group, Girls’ Generation. While Girls’ Generation initially made its mark on the global pop charts from its home base of South Korea, Hwang was born and raised on the West Coast and her father apparently is a big-time Dodgers fan. So, how did the 23-year-old global pop phenom fare? Did she make her father proud while throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before the Dodgers hosted the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night? Um, no. Here’s the lovely young lady giving it her best shot, with South Korea’s Hyun-Jin Ryu handling the catching duties. Via Cut4: Yikes. Good form, bad results. Her pre-pitch posing may have thrown her off her game. It was definitely not as good as Cris Carter’s recent attempt at a Reds game. But in all honesty, that should be expected. If ...

The Dodgers on Tuesday promoted right-handed pitcher Ross Stripling to Double-A Chattanooga from High-A Rancho Cucamonga. The 2012 fifth-round draft pick has been on a nearly meteoric rise since the Dodgers popped him last season.
Stripling, 23, posted some impressive numbers in the California League early this season. He struck out 34 batters in 33 2/3 innings, walked 11 batters...
Los Angeles Dodgers' shortstop prospect Darnell Sweeney hit for the cycle on Tuesday night against the Inland Empire 66ers.
Sweeney, 21, hit a home run in his first at-bat, a triple in his second, a single in his third and a double in his fourth. He's done this all in just six innings of work.
Quakes' play-by-play man Mike Lindskog said Sweeney could have easily...
Matt Kemp's generosity has touched many in the baseball world.
Kemp, who recently gave a sick fan not only an autographed baseball but his game jersey, hat and cleats, was beyond moved when he came into contact with Joshua Jones, a 19-year-old from Tracy, Calif., suffering from inoperable tumors in his spine and has been given 90 days to live.
I said hi to him, he just looked...

Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp is a superstar and it has nothing to do with his play on the field. It has nothing to do with his ridiculous 2011 when he tallied 39 jacks, 126 RBIs, 40 stolen bases and hit .324.
On Sunday night at AT&T Park in San Francisco, Joshua Jones, and...
Over the last couple days Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp has gotten a lot of attention for an act of kindness that he showed to a young fan over the weekend during the team's series with the San Francisco Giants. In this clip he talks about the whole scene, how he didn't know anyone was filming, and why he did what he did.
After seeing the clip of him giving...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed short stop Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain that was suffered just a few games into his return to game action. Having hit close to a .500 clip since his return, this is yet another prominent injury setback for the unfortunate Dodgers this season. Los Angeles has called up short stop Dee Gordon to take his...
One lucky Dodgers fan had a night he will never forget on Monday.
Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Matt Kemp makes $10 million a year, but the autographed ball, jersey and shoes he gave a disabled fan are priceless.
Joshua Jones is sick with cancer was at the Dodgers-Giants game with his dad last Sunday. His father started talking to t…

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr. lets his glove do the talking while inconspicuously dealing with a loud mouth heckler at Coors Field. The video is from a game in 2011 but has recently gone viral.
The post Tony Gwynn Jr. And The Heckler appeared first on Baseball Hot Corner.
Before the start of Monday's Los Angeles Dodgers/Arizona Diamondbacks game, Korean pop star and member of the K-Pop group Girls Generation Tiffany Hwang got to throw out the first pitch.
To put it lightly, Tiffany throws out a pitch that doesn't come close to home plate:

As a soccer referee, I have heard it a thousand times.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is taking heat for saying the Dodgers are good in spite of dropping into last place.
After a close loss, the coach can generally be heard praising how well the team played; how tough they were. Okay, maybe that b.s. helps the morale of a bunch of 12-year olds whose only concern is what the post...
The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants have always had a volatile rivalry while doing battle in the National League West.
Lately though it seems the two fan bases have ratcheted it up the volatility. According to the Big Lead, punches and bottles were thrown during a brawl between fans from both teams Saturday night in the stands at AT&T Park,
No word yet on how...
Paul Goldschmidt hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the ninth inning off closer Brandon League and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Dodgers 5-3 on Tuesday night, sending last-place Los Angeles to its sixth straight loss.
League (0-2) walked Gerardo Parra to open the ninth and struck out Didi Gregorius. Goldschmidt fouled off five full-count pitches before driving his seventh home...
