Dodgers Practice Shortened by Weather
Heavy rains and flooded fields forced the Dodgers to cut back on their practice Sunday. Pitchers played catch and hitters took batting practice in the covered cages, but the ballfields were off-limits until Monday.
In addition, about 30 players took part in a 45-minute abdominal and lower back yoga session with local instructor Katherine Roberts.
Manager Joe Torre said Monday will mark the beginning of a situational hitting drill in which four teams of batters will hold a week-long competition, conducted by hitting coaches Don Mattingly and Jeff Pentland. – Ken Gurnick
