LOS ANGELES -- Friday marked the return of White Sox manager Robin Ventura to Dodger Stadium. He played 151 games with the Dodgers in 2003 and 2004 during the final seasons of his Major League career.
"I don't even know what I hit," Ventura said. "I know we won the West. It was great -- '04 was just a great year. Growing up a Dodgers fan and coming to games here as a kid, to be able to play here was special."
As far as a milestone, Ventura mentioned Steve Finley's winning grand slam against the Giants that clinched the National League West Division championship for the Dodgers in 2004.
"I don't know if it gets any better than that, second-to-last day of the season against the Giants. That was the best one," Ventura said.
