Yasiel Puig Bar Fight Captured On Video ... Dodgers Investigating

11/30/2015 6:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1127-yasiel-puig-tmz-01Yasiel Puig's Thanksgiving Eve bar fight was captured on surveillance video, sources tell TMZ Sports ... and cops say they have seen the tape.  

Sources tell us ... the entire incident was recorded from multiple angles -- including the physical altercation between Yasiel and his sister.  

However, we're told investigators only saw the "outside the bar" footage -- which definitively showed Puig hitting a bar manager in the face ... and then several people attacking Puig in retaliation. 

As for the incident with his sister, one bar staffer who's seen the tape says the footage definitely shows Puig getting physical with the woman ... slapping her hand and pulling her hair. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Dodgers team president Stan Kasten last night who tells us the team and MLB officials are still investigating. 

When we asked Kasten if Puig will be on the team next season, he told us he's not ready to commit to an answer until the investigation is over. 

'Ballers' Omar Benson Miller Dodgers Screwed Don Mattingly ... He Was The Scapegoat

10/29/2015 4:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Dodgers manager Don Mattingly still has one friend in L.A. -- "Ballers" star Omar Benson Miller says it's not Mattingly's fault they bombed in the playoffs, and he didn't deserve the axe.

We got Omar, a huge Dodgers fan, at LAX and asked if he agreed with the "mutual" parting of ways. Omar dropped some wisdom about who's really to blame for the blue crew flaming out in the NLDS ... and it damn sure ain't Donny Baseball!

Check out the clip -- Omar thinks the front office should be questioning certain moves, and he names names.

Coincidentally, Mattingly's now the Marlins skipper down in Miami ... where Omar shoots "Ballers."

So, reunited and it feels so gooood ...

Dodgers to AC/DC You Can't Trash Our Field ... Like Ya Did Wrigley

9/28/2015 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925-dodgers-acdc-getty-01For those about to rock Dodger Stadium -- know that the team's not about to let AC/DC headbangers screw up their run at the World Series by tearing up the field during Monday's show.

The Aussie rockers already left their mark on the Cubs' Wrigley Field. Manager Joe Maddon complained his infield got trashed after AC/DC's concert. So, with the band coming to L.A. ... a Dodger rep tells TMZ Sports they're taking no chances.

Instead of copying the Cubs -- who actually removed their turf and laid it down again -- the Blue Crew will leave the field as is. Their solution will be a special tarp placed over the entire playing surface.

We're told it worked like a charm when Sir Paul McCartney played the stadium last year ... so, team officials aren't too worried about AC/DC's fans. 

Rock n' roll ain't field pollution.

Doc Rivers Disgusted With Paul Pierce's 1st Pitch

7/30/2015 8:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He hasn't played 1 minute for the Clippers yet ... but Paul Pierce has already found a way to DISAPPOINT his new coach -- when he CHOKED on the mound at the Dodgers game. 

FYI -- Pierce had the honor of throwing out the 1st pitch at Dodgers Stadium earlier this week ... but failed ... and got showered with boos from the crowd. 

So, when we saw Doc Rivers in L.A. yesterday, we showed him the footage for the first time to get his candid reaction -- and it was hilarious. 

"On no. That is awful."

Check out the clip ... Rivers does offer a pretty good excuse for Pierce ... and then reveals an embarrassing baseball secret about himself.

0729-justin-turner-getty-01L.A. Dodgers 3rd baseman Justin Turner shoulda oxy-cuted the massive pimple on his leg -- because it got infected ... and things got so bad, he was taken to the EMERGENCY ROOM!!!

It's pretty gross ... Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Turner noticed something was wrong on his inner thigh on Sunday -- and was given medicine, but it didn't heal. 

In fact, things got even worse -- so, he was taken to an emergency room where he was treated for an infection ... stemming from the pimple ... and missed the Dodgers game on Tuesday night. 

Justin later said the pimple was an ingrown hair that "blew up" and got infected. 

Turner was given a ton of medicine and is now out of the hospital and "day-to-day."

MLB's Eric Karros Dodgers Had Nudity Issue ... With Ballsy Pitcher

7/6/2015 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Talk about an awkward conversation ... the L.A. Dodgers once "had an issue" with a pitcher who took locker room nudity WAYYYY too far -- and would hit the team snack bar with his dong out ... so says Eric Karros

It all went down in the '90s ... and judging from the way Karros tells the story, the "issue" was more about being sanitary ... because nobody wants dirty naked parts touching the team Cracker Jacks. 

So, who was the naked culprit? Check out the clip ... Karros is naming names. 

Dodgers Zack Greinke Ripped Teammates for Poop Habits Wash Your Damn Hands!

breaking news

0625-zack-greinke-getty-01L.A. Dodgers superstar Zack Greinke called out a bunch of his crappy teammates in 2013 ... putting the Blue Crew on blast for taking dumps in team facilities ... and NOT washing their hands! 

It's all part of a new book by former Dodgers beat writer Molly Knight ... who says the Cy Young winner had been quietly stewing about his teammates bathroom habits ... until one team meeting where he decided to finally speak up. 

"I’ve got something to say,” he said. The room was quiet.

Some of you guys have been doing the number two and not washing your hands. It’s not good. I noticed it even happening earlier today. So if you guys could just be better about it, that would be great.

Greinke sat down. The team wasn’t sure if he was serious. When they realized he was, they laughed. Then they took the field, far looser than they had been, and went out and beat the Dbacks. Two days later they clinched the division and jumped in the Dbacks pool."

So, who were the dirty culprits? Gonzalez? Kemp? Puig? Kershaw???

We may never know ... but if you ever meet 'em, might not be a bad idea to Purell afterward.

breaking news

united-airlines-dodgers-getty-01Scary moment for the Los Angeles Dodgers ... when the team plane made an emergency landing Sunday night because of a mechanical issue. 

The team jet had departed from San Diego at 7:15 PM after beating the Padres 4-2, when their aircraft -- United Airlines Flight 2207 -- called in an emergency landing at LAX. 

The flight landed safely at 8:16 PM -- with all 176 passengers and crew on board. 

An airline spokesperson said the Dodgers players were transferred to another plane so they could get to Dallas -- where they're set to take on the Rangers later today. 

Minnie Driver Yeah, I Screwed Up Nat'l Anthem (But I Was Still Pretty Good!)

6/10/2015 9:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Minnie Driver's lyrical screwup during the "Star Spangled Banner" at the Dodgers game has clearly not affected her confidence ... telling us, "I did very well. I got a word wrong."

(For the record, she got TWO words wrong, but close enough)

Minnie says she was "very bummed" about the mistake ... and chalked the whole thing up to nerves. 

Still, Driver says it could have been worse -- saying it was more important for her to stay in tune then to have gotten all of the lyrics right.  

She may have a point  ... right Carl Lewis?

breaking news

0520-lance-bass-dodgers-TMZ-01The L.A. Dodgers have announced the team is bringing back LGBT night at Dodger Stadium next month ... with a bunch of huge stars including Lance Bass

It's the 3rd time the Dodgers are hosting the event -- all set to go down on June 19th when the Dodgers take on the San Francisco Giants. 

The team says Lisa Vanderpump will throw out the first pitch. 

Openly gay country music singer Ty Herndon will perform the national anthem. 

Former Dodgers player Billy Bean -- who came out after his playing days were over -- will also be a part of the event. 

The Dodgers say they are also partnering up with GYM Sportsbar -- the first and only gay sports bar in Los Angeles -- in promoting the event. 


Yasiel Puig Hits 1st Home Run ... Then Hits the Clubs!

4/13/2015 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Seems the "old" Yasiel Puig is finally coming back ... 'cause after a quiet, slumping, terrible start to the MLB season ... Puig hit his 1st home run of the year yesterday -- and then he hit the clubs! 

The 24-year-old star partied at Greystone Manor in West Hollywood late Sunday night ... hours after his 1-5 performance helped the Dodgers defeat the Arizona Diamondbacks. 

Puig is in a pretty nasty slump this season -- he's only 3 for 22 with a .136 average ... not ideal for a guy in a $42 million contract. 

In the past, Puig's been a staple on the club scene -- and Dodgers owner Magic Johnson has said that he's totally cool with it as long as the team wins. 

BTW -- Puig wasn't the only jock at the club last night ... Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was there ... so was NBA star JaVale McGee

Larry King I Was At Jackie Robinson's 1st Dodger Game

4/5/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

This is pretty cool ... Larry King was at Ebbets Field on that historic day Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball ... and wait'll you hear how much he paid for a ticket to that game!

The 81-year-old news legend was out in L.A. this weekend when we made case for why he should be considered the greatest Dodgers fan of them all ... essentially the Jack Nicholson of the Blue Crew.

And the fact that he still vividly remembers what happened in Brooklyn on April 15, 1947 ... almost 68 years ago -- you'd be hard pressed to find any other fan who bleeds this kinda blue.
