Dodgers Down Under: Eating kangaroo
MAR 18, 2014 3:26p ET
The Dodgers have arrived safely in Australia and are already taking in the local sights, sounds ... and cuisine.
Catcher Tim Federowicz shared his thoughts after chowing down on kangaroo.
Just had kangaroo for dinner. It was a lot better than I expected!— Tim Federowicz (@FedX19) March 18, 2014
The Dodgers will play a two-game, season-opening series against the Diamondbacks at Sydney Cricket Ground -- established in 1848. The games will be played at 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. PT on Saturday.
Dodgers infielder Andre Ethier, however, seemed annoyed when questioned by reporters about the hard playing surface at the Cricket Ground.
"I'm here to play a baseball game. I boarded a plane last night and this is where I landed. I'm here to play," said Ethier, according to the LA Times.
"Glad to be here. Fun trip. This is a good time. Great for baseball. Good for Australia. Happy to be here, guys."
The Chicago White Sox, a team that shares a spring training home with the Dodgers in Glendale, Ariz., played a series of exhibition games in Sydney 100 years ago.
