The MLB handed down harsh punishments to the Houston Astros on Monday after an official investigation concluded the team devised an effective system to illegally steal signs from opponents during their World Series-winning campaign. The Astros bench coach in was Alex Cora, who left Houston that offseason to join the Red Sox as their new manager for Cora, according to the league’s report on the Astros, played a pivotal role in creating and implementing the sign-stealing operation.
There is no timetable for when the league’s investigation of the Red Sox will be completed. The league noted it won’t announce any punishment for Cora until the investigation is done. The Red Sox held a press conference Wednesday to address the situation. It feels inappropriate to turn our attention to Major League Baseball’s trade deadline after a week that saw civil unrest reach the generally staid and risk-averse national pastime, and yet the pages of the calendar continue to turn.

The MLB has also allowed custom equipment for the weekend of Aug.

The official up-to-the-minute starting lineup of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The land for Dodger Stadium was purchased from local owners and inhabitants in the early s by the city of Los Angeles using eminent domain with funds from the Federal Housing Act of The city had planned to develop the Elysian Park Heights public housing project, which included two dozen story buildings and more than two-story townhouses, in addition to newly rebuilt playgrounds and schools. Before construction could begin on the housing project, the local political climate changed greatly when Norris Poulson was elected mayor of Los Angeles in By then, the proposed public housing projects like Elysian Park Heights lost most of their support.
Following protracted negotiations, the city purchased the Chavez Ravine property back from the Federal Housing Authority at a drastically reduced price, with the stipulation that the land be used for a public purpose. It was not until June 3, , when Los Angeles voters approved a “Taxpayers Committee for Yes on Baseball” referendum, that the Dodgers were able to acquire acres of Chavez Ravine from the city. In the mids, Brooklyn Dodger team president Walter O’Malley had tried to build a domed stadium in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, but was unable to reach an agreement with city officials on land acquisition, and eventually reached a deal with the city of Los Angeles.
The rest is history. While Dodger Stadium was under construction, the Dodgers played in the league’s largest capacity venue from through at their temporary home, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. White lines represent the approximate location of the diamond, with the plate at lower right.
