Alvin Andrew Toles (born May 24, 1992) is an American professional baseball outfielder who played for the Los Angeles Dodgers of Major League Baseball (MLB).

"But, at least, we're not worrying whether he's alive," his sister, Morgan Toles, told the newspaper.

Andrew struggles to watch TV, let alone keep up to date on his former team, his dad said. He remains unaware that the team he spent three seasons with secured a World Series win in October.

"We are having challenges,'' Alvin said, "but nothing that God and I can't handle. Schizophrenia, it's just so tough. I mean, he can't even watch TV. He hears voices and the TV at the same time, so it's kind of confusing. I've seen him looking at some baseball games on his laptop, but I don't think he really understands what's going on."
