You don't have to be a Southern Californian or a Brooklynite, and you don't have to love baseball, to bleed Dodger Blue. You just have to live here. "Oh, I hope they don't leave," said Sunny Pauley, 91, just coming off the links at the Dodgertown Golf Club, where she has been playing for 27 years. "I'd say I was shocked at the news the Dodgers are for sale, just like Tommy Lasorda said he was. They have been here so long, and they do so much good for this town."

Cal Ripken Jr. could replace Tom Lasorda as the resident icon at Dodgertown. A major league club has reserved the option to replace the Dodgers when they move from their longtime spring home in Vero Beach, Fla., Mayor Tom White said Friday. He said the deal could enable spring training in Vero Beach -- a tradition since 1948 -- to continue uninterrupted after the Dodgers leave. White would not identify the club, but it is believed to be the Baltimore Orioles.

The first home game of the spring Friday served as a reminder that there is ample room for improvement when the Dodgers design, build and move to their new digs in Glendale, Ariz., in 2009. The concourses could be built wide enough for fans to enter and exit without squeezing against each other. More concession stands are needed. Bathrooms can be located on the same level as the stands.

One of the few men with absolute power to end baseball's lockout fitted his key into the deadbolt. "Like I said," remarked the official as he opened the door to the Dodgers' spring clubhouse. "Empty." The room didn't look or feel like baseball. It didn't even smell like baseball. It was crammed with empty lockers--metal ones lining the walls, wooden ones scattered and stacked across the middle of the floor.

Dodger executives will travel to Florida soon for another round of discussions with city and county officials hoping to keep the team in Vero Beach for spring training. With limited public funding forcing officials in Florida and Arizona to scale back competing bids for training complexes, a club official raised the possibility Friday that the Dodgers might simply defer their decision for a year or two in the hope a more favorable financial climate might develop in either state.

The priest looked out over the congregation at St. Helen's church, spreading his arms and smiling. "My friends, there is more to life than spring training," Monsignor Irvine Nugent declared. He was answered by one nervous chuckle. Then another. Then silence. A major league baseball team isn't the only thing absent from Vero Beach these days. Life is slower, quieter and seems to have misplaced its sense of humor.
