Feliz Dia de las Madres!

Watching Eric Stults pitched yesterday I was remembering that his mom passed away during Spring Training.   Eric:  Your mom was watching you from above!   Thanks for the win and a complete game at that!  The team and specially the bullpen needed that!  

Happy Mother’s day everyone!   Fully enjoy your time with your mom.   Sadly I don’t remember mine as she passed away when I was three but I had a wonderful grandmother that raised me.  People say that I inherited my love for sports from my grandma.  She did not follow baseball but was a boxing fan of all sports and soccer.  

I am heading to Dodger Stadium soon.  Players and coaches will hand out roses at the turnstiles between 11:30 and 12.  I get to the stadium earlier than that so no fair but I’ll see what I can do to get out and come back in :-).  

After the game you can walk around the warning track with your family and meet some Dodger legends along the way.  How cool is that!?  

During the game, several players will be using the pink bats as in years past and they’ll all be wearing pink ribbons on their uniforms for breast cancer awareness.

Plus all sorts of pregame ceremonies honoring Moms, Moms taking the field with their kids and the Dodgers so I better get ready to head to the stadium!

The Red Sox also had an opportunity for Moms and their kids to walk the bases this morning; we have an 8pm game tonight so it would be a late for the little ones to be at the game. And hey – nothing wrong with your grandmother loving boxing! My mom was a HUGE hockey fan! Have a great day!

Jane,
I got the roses but not a win :-( We were down to only the rookie Brent Leach in the BP when Mota lost it. I did walk around the warning track in rememberance of the friends I have lost becaue of cancer.
