East Providence native, Dodgers first base coach Davey Lopes weighs in on Fall Classic

October 22, 2013

This is one of those times when getting it straight from the horse’s mouth just seems right. In Dodgers first base coach Davey Lopes, you have someone who meets the criteria of gleaning insight into what exactly makes the Red Sox and Cardinals tick.

Lopes’ credentials are unparalleled when it comes to weighing in/opining on the two World Series combatants. The East Providence native and La Salle Academy alumnus was part of a Los Angeles organization that recently got pushed aside by St. Louis in the National League Championship Series.
