Homestand, Kirk Gibson and Viva Los Dodgers Festival
So far this homestand we are 2-3. Not good. We split the four game series with Arizona. I really thought we would take the series.
One of the best things of the D’backs being in town is getting to see Kirk Gibson.
Gibby is so nice that he comes over to the Kid’s corral and signs for us fans. Last year the D’backs happen to be in town during the 80′s celebration day. Kirk Gibson took the time to show up at the 80′s luncheon held in the Club Level restaurant. We had quite a few players from the 80′s but the big surprise was Gibson. Gibby mentioned that it be nice if the seat where his famous 88 World Series landed be marked with his name. Now, wouldn’t that be nice to honor Gibby?
When I got to the stadium and saw the matchup on the scoreboard of LeBlanc with a 9.75 ERA, I thought for sure my Dodgers can win BUT instead it was a frustrating loss. Dodgers were blanked out by the score of 2-0. UGH! Ten men were left on base. Pathetic display! Clayton Kershaw has had 8 runs support in his last 9 starts. Just pathetic hitting lately. I still can’t believe it! Zip, nothing, nada zero runs. Oh, I almost forgot the two errors in the same play. Just pathetic.
Randy Wolf goes Saturday! Hopefully the wolfman can restore order and be the stopper he has been lately.
Saturday is also the Viva Los Dodgers Festival.
I have been attending a few of these events in the past. There is music, games for kids, vendor booths from Dodger sponsors with giveaways an contests. Also there is autgraph booths with players rotating in the booths. Jaime Jarrin, Fernando Valenzuela and Pepe Yniquez also participate in this event.
The game will start at it scheduled time of 7:10 p.m. so for us that are going to both the festival and the game it will a long day/night at the stadium.
Tomorrow is also another segment of “This is my Town”. This time is to honor the Mexican community so the shirt will be in Spanish “Esta es my Ciudad” Buying tickets in this section entitles you to the t-shirt and an All you can eat. The menu includes guesadillas, lime chicken, watermelon and the standard nachos, Dodger Dogs, and non-alcoholic drinks.
