Aftermath of Red Sox-Dodgers series 

August, 26, 2013
LOS ANGELES -- Bits and pieces from the Red Sox-Dodgers series over the weekend:

Andre Ethier recalls that he had always wanted to play center field as an amateur ballplayer, but when he got into professional baseball, he was moved to corner outfielder and that was that.

But with Matt Kemp sidelined and the Dodgers in need of a center fielder, Don Mattingly asked Ethier to move there and he has loved it -- and believes it’s been good to be challenged in a different way at this stage of his career.
