Once more, it's 2-for-1 day: Happy birthday to two of the best.
Former Dodgers announcer Ross Porter has taken a position with Interactive Broadcast Network Sports (iBN) as a studio host and play-by-play announcer covering high school and college football and basketball.

Porter, whose 28-year tenure with the Dodgers ended after the 2004 season, has been running Real Sports Heroes since 2007. He starts his new job August 26, the day that IBN launches its 2011 prep football coverage. The network also covers sports including mixed martial arts and minor-league baseball.

Happy birthday, Vin and Ross

It's 2-for-1 day again: Happy birthday to a pair of my all-time favorites.
Nice job by T.J. Simers of the Times catching up with Ross Porter – make sure to read it.

From the Dodger Thoughts archives: "Next Stop Porterville" (forgive the typographical annoyances). Can't believe six years have passed since that interview.

The economy is treating some people right: Kirk Gibson's "She is ... gone!" bat, jersey and batting helmet sold for more than $1 million combined at auction Saturday.
