The Dodgers’ Organist Plays Selena, Los Tigres Del Norte, Drake And It’s Truly Awesome

If you’ve watched a Los Angeles Dodgers game (on TV or in person), you’ve probably heard a few familiar playing songs in the background. Like this one:

Yep, that’s “Baila Esta Cumbia” by Selena.

And this one:

You’ve probably heard this one at a party at least once in your life: “Como Te Voy A Olvidar” by Los Angeles Azules.

Where are these glorious sounds coming from? Dieter Ruehele, the organist for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

He began the gig in 2016, replacing longtime Dodgers organist Nancy Bea Hefley, who retired after 28 years with the Dodgers.

Ruehle has made a name for himself by peppering in bits of popular music (of all genres) during Dodger games. He’s got several Spanish-language hits in his arsenal, such as “La Puerta Negra” by Los Tigres del Norte…

… And the two songs you heard previously. Selena’s “Baila Esta Cumbia”…

… and “Como Te Voy A Olvidar” by Los Angeles Azules.

Ruehle’s got range. He might hit you with the theme to “Rick and Morty”…

… The theme music to “Game Of Thrones”…

… Or “Passionfruit” by Drake.

And the fans love it.

Even fans of opposing teams appreciate Ruehle’s song selection.

So, if you’re watching the World Series, listen closely. You may hear one of your favorite songs playing in the background.

There is still a lot that we do not know about Covid-19 and the longterm effects of the virus. Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez is learning the hard way how the virus attacks the body after a patient is “cured.”

The baseball world was excited to welcome Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez back.

As the MLB keeps pushing to salvage their Covid-postponed season restart, the virus has shown itself in a different way. After half of the Miami Marlins team tested positive for the virus, a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox is suffering from health issues because of Covid.

Rodriguez is suffering from myocarditis, a heart condition.

The baseball player is suffering from a heart condition that is directly tied to his Covid-19 illness. While Rodriguez survived Covid-19, the heart condition is proof that there is so much more to know about what this virus does. Despite overcoming Covid, Rodriguez is still suffering from the effects of this unknown virus.

The lingering health effect is a reminder of the importance of not contracting the virus.

“That’s the most important part of your body,” Rodriguez told WEEI. “The first time I hear, I was kind of scared a little. Now that I know what it is, I’m still scared, but now I know exactly what it is. I just talk to my mom, talk to my wife, let them know what I have, and now I’ve got to take the rest.”

There is more to Covid-19 than the immediate death and recovery rates.

Health experts and doctors have been warning people about the unknown effects of Covid-19. Rodriguez’s ongoing battle with Covid-19 is a hard reminder that not even the most in shape and athletic people are immune from the devastating effects of the virus. Be safe. Be careful.

Miami Marlins Covid Outbreak Causes Chaos Of MLB Season After One Weekend

An outbreak of Covid among MLB players and coaches has postponed the highly anticipated and very hyped return of the season. It took less than a week since the sport came back for there to be a viral outbreak within the league.

The Miami Marlins are dealing with a Covid outbreak within the team before their opening games.

Half of the players for the Miami Marlins are positive for Covid-19 before the home opener against the Baltimore Orioles. The Marlins’ season has been paused through the weekend and the lineup was changed up to make sure the season can continue.

“Obviously, we don’t want any player to get exposed. It’s not a positive thing,” Commissioner Rob Manfred said Monday night on the MLB Network. “But I don’t see it as a nightmare.” He continued: “We think we can keep people safe and continue to play.”

Phillies Outfielder Andrew McCutchen took to Twitter to vent his frustration about MLB communication.

Apparently, McCutchen didn’t know that the Phillies game against the New York Yankees Tuesday was canceled until getting on Twitter. The weekend schedule was thrown into turmoil after news broke about the outbreak on the Miami Marlins. The outbreak comes as some have criticized the MLB for not trying a bubble conference, like the NBA and NHL.

Other teams in the league are showing their own discomfort with the current situation.

The Nationals were supposed to play in Miami this weekend but the surge in Covid cases in Florida put an end to that. The Washington Nationals voted to postpone and the MLB followed their lead and canceled that series.

In a statement by the MLB, the Miami Marlins are the only confirmed team to have a Covid outbreak. The league recently conducted 6,400 tests among players and coaches and haven’t found other outbreaks on the remaining 29 teams.
