Photos from Steve Garvey Celebrity Softball game to benefit ALS.

I way behind posting these pictures from the Steve Garvey Celebrity Softball Classic to benefit ALS. 

Thank you Mike for inviting Vic and I for this event.  A group of us made the trip after the Dodger game to Pepperdine in Malibu for this event.   The traffic was a little heavy but the ride on PCH is beautiful.   

Here is the booklet which many of us had Steve Garvey signed:

 I did not see Tommy Lasorda but he could have been there early for the Festival, we got there about 5:30.  It looked like it was a fun festival.  I also missed the auction that they had during the festival.  

Some of my pictures did not come out but here are some pictures

Here is Steve Garvey batting in full uniform.  His son is there ready to run for him.

Mike, Steve Garvey and I.   I told Garvey that he looked like he could still play.  He said “Oh you are so kind, thank you. ”

Garvey does look like he could still play, and I’m sure he enjoyed hearing that from you! Canseco, on the other hand….Didn’t he just lose a boxing match to a much older guy?

LOL about Canseco Jane. Did not know that!

Emma,
If I knew you were going to seeJose, I would have given you a great story to tell him..plustell him “hello” from me.
But that is a great collection of past Dodger greats that participated in that event.
Always wish the Rays would do something like that with their former players and the local charities.
Great to see both the community and the team support this great event. And Kudos to Steve Garvey for being the point man for this cause.

Cliff,
My friend Mike says that Jose goes to the same gym he does. I wish I would have taken the Canseco book with me. There are probably going to be other events that he will attend.
