Roberts formerly played with the Dodgers and is the first minority manager in franchise history. The 43-year-old replaces Don Mattingly, who left the team after the season and signed to manage Miami.
Former Dodger great Don Newcombe collapsed at Roberts' news conference and was taken to the hospital. There was no immediate word on the 89-year old's condition.
