One of the first fantasy baseball leagues I participated in was a “legacy” league back in the 1990s. You could draft players from any era. Old Hoss Radbourn was in the league. So was Lyman Bostock.

That memory was rekindled when the Dodgers announced the list of participants for Saturday’s “old-timer’s game,” which will be played at Dodger Stadium after the 1 p.m. game between the Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.

I mean, an outfield of Darryl Strawberry, Dusty Baker and Raul Mondesi? An infield of Nomar Garciaparra, Maury Wills and Eric Karros?

Admission to the game is free with a ticket to the Dodgers-Giants game. Introductions will be followed by a two-inning game. The full list of participants:

Some bullet points for a South Korean Parents’ Day:

• UCLA alumnus Meb Keflezighi, the first American in 32 years to win the Boston Marathon, will throw the ceremonial first pitch tonight.

• The name of this blog is Inside the Dodgers, but apparently that’s only because the team and MLB haven’t threatened legal action against us.

BaseballAmerica.com projects the Dodgers to grab a high school pitcher in the first round of the June draft.

• OK, this is cool. MLBfarm.com has a search tool that allows you to see how each of the Dodgers’ (or any other team’s) top 20 prospects performed yesterday (or another day, last week or last month).

• Speaking of which, Tom Windle pitched yesterday.

Yasiel Puig is swinging less and making contact more.

Backstage Dodgers followed Puig to his Miami home Sunday morning.

MLB.com analyzed Joc Pederson‘s hot start.

• The Class A Midwest League produced the Game of the Year last night. The Clinton Lumberkings were trailing 17-1 going into the sixth inning and came back to win 20-17. Here is the box score.

• Only one current major-league manager has never been ejected from a game. The leaderboard is here.

• The Padres are messing with the outfield distances at Petco Park.

• Robert Glasper’s version is not the first acoustic piano cover of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” I’ve heard, but it is the smoothest:
