From Last to First! Meet John Ely
From Last to First. The Dodgers’ win coupled with the San Diego loss took over first place in the National League West for the first time in 2010! . After losing to Colorado on May 8, the Dodgers were in last place, 6.0 games behind the Padres, and have gone 22-7 since!
Kuroda-san pitched his best game against Carpenter but Kuo got the win and Jonathan Broxton the save. Final score: Dodgers 1, Cardinals 0.
Last Saturday my friends and I went to see Ely at an assigned signing at the At&T store in Culver City. We found Ely to be personable and adorable. Here are some pictures:
All about Ely
Ely Signed my scorebook on a scoresheet where he pitched! He looked at it and said “This is Cool!” He was impressed with Lorena who asked him who his favorite pitchers were growing up. I took a picture of Lore and Ely with her camera. Then after my pic with Ely, we were asked if we wanted one with both of us in the picture.
Thank you Ely! Thank you At&T and thank you KABC for the tickets! We sat in the Reserved aisle 7 on Sunday, courtesy of KABC.
Tonight’s game: Clayton Kershaw against Wainwright. This time I will be able to watch the whole game. Yesterday I was working with the Red Cross collecting pledges for the upcoming Annual Blood Drive for Saturday June 19.
This is an annual competition between the Angels and the Dodgers Booster Club. If you donate at this annual Blood drive, you get a voucher for your choice of team tickets, a commemorative t-shirt, a voucher for fish tacos from Wahoo, and a voucher for the Laugh Factory in Pasadena!
DONATE BLOOD! and GO DODGERS!
