Mandalay Baseball, LLC, a joint venture between ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers and an investor group led by Mandalay Entertainment Chairman and CEO Peter Guber, says the team's new logos and jerseys will mix elements of Dodgers history and the culture of Oklahoma City and Bricktown. The team will also come up with new mascots before the 2015 season.
The group purchased the franchise in September. Oklahoma City will be the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate in 2015.
“Ever since I could walk I’ve never been a home run hitter, I let the other guys do that and grab the glory.” says Craig Aikin, Centerfielder at the University of Oklahoma.
Craig Aikin is a freshman Centerfielder for the University of Oklahoma’s baseball team. He’s generously listed at 5’ 10” on the Sooners roster. He’s known for his speed, but he showed at a young age he has some power.
“It was coach pitch, I was six or seven,” says Aikin. “I remember my dad was standing there throwing, he was the coach, and I would get frustrated cause he wouldn’t throw me a strike.”
