Isn't Dodger Stadium the third oldest stadium in baseball, after Fenway Park and Wrigley Field? (The current Yankee Stadium is not "the house that Ruth built".)
World Youth Team Championships August 8-18 2018
Not enough non-whites on the other four teams for you, Sarah? I'm guessing based on last names, but I think there are only four whites on those teams.

The Times They Are A'Changin'
I think it was said of both Crawford and Schenken. I think many years ago somebody did do a poll in which they asked experts to name the second best player and came out with very sensible rankings.
