Andre Ethier, Dodgers Road Trip to New York and Pittsburgh

Congratulations to Andre on having a 30 game hitting streak. The hitting streak ended on the second game at Citi Field but Andre got back to hitting on Mother’s day when he belted his fourth homerun of the year. Andre also had a single so is nice that Andre is back to hitting. During the 30-game hitting streak, he had the other three homeruns.

The most important thing is that the Dodgers were able to salvage one game with the Mets. Is on to beautiful PNC Park now to play four with the Pirates. I’d like to go back to PNC again as the only time I was there, I was only able to watch one game, stay the night and fly back to LA the following morning. .

I have not been updating my blog as often and not visiting the blogs. We had a dead in the family. My dearest tia (aunt) Nena passed away with Cancer. May she rest in peace. Tia Nena was never a baseball fan. She would ask me how I had become such a fan when noone in my family was a baseball fan before. Another reason I have not updated my blog is I have not been feeling well but I am going to try to get back into the swing of things. I got to get ready for all the exciting upgrades to all the Fan MLB blogs. We have all seen it with the Pro blogs. Now is our turn!

During the last Dodgers homestand, I got to meet Steve Soboroff who is the Vice-Chairman of the Dodgers. . My friend Lorena had invited him to come and talk to season ticket holders in the Top Deck when she read that he was going to be viisting the Pavilions so he showed up with Drew McCourt.

In the picture, Drew, me, Gaby (Lore’s friend),David (we had a good laugh ’cause he snuck in the picture), Steve Soboroff and Lorena.

Steve and Drew asked us for stadium suggestions so we offered some suggestions and since they had to go, they asked us to email them suggestions.

The following day, during batting practice, we noticed a white hair gentleman that Deuce’s dad _William thought it was Tom Schieffer. Currently, Schieffer oversees the operations of the Los Angeles Dodgers on behalf of the Commissioner of Baseball. Sure enough it was him. His security guy was close by. We talked to him briefly and snapped this picture.

My condolences on the loss of your tia, Emma. That’s so hard. I hope you feel better soon too. I think the blogging comes and goes for all us when life outside of baseball needs to take the front seat for a while. We love to read what you write whether it’s once a month or every day.
