KPCC reports:

Calls for the Los Angeles Dodgers to move their spring training base from Arizona were made today when about 150 people demonstrated outside Dodger Stadium in a union-organized protest against Arizona's illegal-immigration law.

"It's important for the Dodgers to take a stand,'' Mike Chavez, communications coordinator with SEIU United Service Workers West, said. "They have a history of standing up against discrimination and we're asking them to do something to show some leadership.''

Dodgers vice president of communications Josh Rawitch declined to comment.

The Dodgers have a long-term lease with Glendale, Ariz. for their Camelback Ranch-Glendale spring training facility.
