From Dodger "Notes" by Ken Gurnick:
You're an All-Star: Garciaparra and Brad Penny, Dodgers All-Stars last year, participated Monday in the taping of a Major League Baseball commercial for this year's All-Star Game. Because the game is in San Francisco, a cable car was brought in as a prop for the taping.
On an unrelated note:
Experiment continues: Apparently the Dodgers haven't totally scrapped the idea of third-base prospect Andy La Roche in the outfield, because he was working with coach Dave Jauss on Monday on balls bouncing in front of him and turning to chase balls hit over his head.
