In case you missed it, we chronicled Will Ferrell’s brief, one-inning Dodgers career here. The actor/comedian wasn’t available for interviews after the game — his fifth of the day — but he recently talked to David Letterman about his long day:
The actor who played Mr. Spock in the original Star Trek series and movies, Leonard Nimoy, died today. Here’s something you might not have known: He once played for a certain baseball team in Brooklyn.

An IMDB.com synopsis for the movie reads:
Rich, eccentric T.J. Banner adopts a feral cat who becomes an affectionate pet. Then T.J. dies, leaving to Rhubarb most of his money and a pro baseball team, the Brooklyn Loons. When the team protests, publicist Eric Yeager convinces them Rhubarb is good luck. But Eric’s fiancée Polly seems to be allergic to cats, and the team’s success may mean new hazards for Rhubarb.
Hopefully this gives you second thoughts about your screenplay about a cat owning a baseball team.
The Angels released their complete spring training television schedule on Thursday. The good news for Dodgers fans: Their five head-to-head games against the Dodgers (March 19, March 28 and April 2-4) will not be blacked out in SportsNet LA markets.
The April 4 game is on KCOP, the April 2 game is on Prime Ticket, and the other three are on Fox Sports West.
Other than a tape-delayed March 6 game against the Milwaukee Brewers on MLB Network, these are the only spring training games available on TV to non-Time Warner Cable subscribers. Currently, SportsNet LA is only available to Time Warner subscribers in Southern California.
