Welcome Back, Mr. Koufax
Every living legend deserves there moment to shine again, even if they are long retired and no longer possess the incredible physical attributes they once had in their prime. But where time chips away at our body, our mind gains the wonderful virtue of wisdom and we can take that wisdom and pass it down to the next generation.
Sandy Koufax, the greatest pitcher that ever lived, will once again be involved in making the LA Dodgers into champions. Koufax has signed on to be an advisor for chairman Mark Walter. Koufax will help in during the spring training with the club pitchers at Camelback Ranch Glendale. Aside from these duties, Koufax will also be a consultant during the season. Naturally, he was delighted to be back with the team where he became a legend.
“I’m delighted to be back with the Dodgers,” he said. “I’m looking forward to spending time with the team during Spring Training and to contributing in any way I can to help make the team a success for the fans of Los Angeles. Some of my most cherished memories came at Dodger Stadium.”
Koufax will be a great mentor for young prospects. Who better to have you how to pitch than Koufax? General Manager Ned Colletti commented on this exciting prospect.
“For our young players and our veterans to be able to tap Sandy’s expertise and counsel during Spring Training and throughout the season will provide yet another tremendous resource in our efforts to strengthen our club,” he said.
