Dodgers Introduce Dave Roberts as Manager

Tuesday afternoon, dozens of media members gathered at Chavez Ravine as the Los Angeles Dodgers prepared to introduce their new manager: Dave Roberts.

He was obviously extremely excited for the opportunity, and said plenty to have fans at something close to a similar level of excitement about the direction he hopes to take the team.

He opened the presser as such:

As he folded his cap he mentioned how his son (who looks insanely like his father) would probably prefer a flatter bill, which drew laughs from the crowd on hand.

He was flanked on either side by Farhan Zaidi and Andrew Friedman, and, of course, Magic Johnson presented Roberts’ jersey, dwarfing everyone at the podium. You honestly couldn’t help but feel some level of happiness for Roberts and his family, as well as the rest of the organization present that day.

He spoke about everything from being the franchise’s first minority manager to Vin Scully calling him on the day of Scully’s birthday (Sunday).

Like we’ve said previously, we don’t want to sound too rah rah about the hiring. There are some worries about what all he brings to the table (or the lack thereof). For now, though, we’re content to simply congratulate Roberts on a dream come true.

Congratulations, Dave, now you and the rest of the organization can get to work.
