In the July 2015 issue of Dodger Insider magazine (image attached), we connect the past to the present and the West to the East, in a special 17-page section that details the birthplaces of Dodger players great and small, state-by-state (as well as around the world). From Don Drysdale (California) to Zack Greinke (Florida) and everyone up, down and in between, it is a rich, diverse geographic history of an indispensable American team.

"A Nation of Dodgers" is one of more than two dozen features in this month's issue of the official team magazine, including stories on how catchers Yasmani Grandal and A.J. Ellis conquer baseball's most painful position and the mystery behind the missing ball from Kirk Gibson's 1988 World Series home run. And, you won't want to miss Vin Scully talking about his favorite photo at Dodger Stadium.

Dodger Insider magazine serves as a companion to the team's official blog, Dodger Insider (dodgers.com/insider), updated multiple times daily.

The 2015 Los Angeles Dodgers Yearbook celebrates the life and career of legendary Dodger lefty Fernando Valenzuela in a special 21-page section, "The Man Behind the Mania." It is entirely in Valenzuela's words - beginning with his first memories of playing baseball at age 13 - and features never-before-seen photos. This year marks the 34th anniversary of the year that Valenzuela (who famously wore No. 34) pitched an Opening Day shutout at age 20, launching Fernandomania.

The July 2015 Dodger Insider magazine and the 2015 Yearbook are available at all Dodger team stores.
