Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - — Bill Shaikin, Los An­ge­les Times

LOS AN­GE­LES — The first arm im­mor­tal­ized in a Dodger Stadium statue will be the one once known as “The Left Arm of God.”

Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Ko­ufax will be honored with the sec­ond statue at the stadium. The statue is ex­pected to be un­veiled next year, in what the team is call­ing a new en­ter­tain­ment plaza beyond cen­ter field. The Dodgers plan to move the Jackie Robin­son statue, in­stalled two years ago on the re­serve level, to the en­ter­tain­ment plaza, flank­ing the Ko­ufax statue.

The news was tweeted by Alanna Rizzo, the Dodgers host/re­porter for Sports Net LA and con­firmed by a per­son with knowl­edge of the sit­u­a­tion who re­quested anonymity. An of­fi­cial an­nounce­ment will come later Tues­day at a news con­fer­ence at Dodger Stadium.
