Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts Says No Chase Field Pool Party: 'That Won't Happen'

PHOENIX — Four years ago, the Los Angeles Dodgers celebrated clinching a division title at Chase Field in Arizona with several players climbing the right field wall and celebrating in the pool. Should the Dodgers close out their National League Division Series with a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix over the next two days, don’t expect a repeat splash.

“That won’t happen,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday night after arriving in Arizona on the scheduled off day. “This is a completely different team, and I think we have bigger goals than to jump into a swimming pool.”

The Dodgers lead the Diamondbacks in the best-of-five series, 2-1. Game 3 is scheduled for 10:08 p.m. ET (TBS) Monday night, one of four MLB games on the docket.

When the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks on Sept. 19, 2013 at Chase Field, their celebration caused quite a stir.

There were even reports that a Dodger or two may have even >peed in the pool.

U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate John McCain was not happy.

No-class act by a bunch of overpaid, immature, arrogant, spoiled brats! "The #Dodgers are idiots"
