From Tony Jackson
The Dodgers are keeping a baby boa constrictor -- which they have named Larry Boa and assigned No. .10 after third-base coach Larry Bowa and his jersey No. 10 -- in a small tank in a vacant locker in their clubhouse. The snake is tiny for now, barely wider than a pencil, and there is an instruction booklet for proper feeding left open in front of the tank, with certain passages highlighted. No word thus far on what the long-term plans are for the snake.
