"Don Newcombe's presence and life established him as a role model for Major Leaguers across the country," Dodgers President Stan Kasten said. "He was a constant presence at Dodger Stadium, and players always gravitated to him for his endless advice and leadership. The Dodgers meant everything to him, and we are all fortunate he was a part of our lives."
"It's impossible, because the configurations are so different," Mr. Kasten said. "We intend to do this very methodically, and we expect it will take us three or four months. The process will be time-consuming, but we're going to do what it takes."
