Love the Dodgers are now letting season ticket holders into the stadium earlier than the rest of the fans just like in some other stadiums.

Glad Vin is back! His voice is so easy to miss when he’s gone!

Jeff,
So are we, so are we. He looked like he was still a little under the weather yesterday but he sounded great. He has cut down his road game to only California and Arizona so no Colorado this year. He can rest now that the Dodgers head to Milwaukee & Houston.

Just a bit of irony/serendipity/whatever else you want to call it. Jackie Robinson grew up in Southern California only to be associated with the Dodgers primarily while they were in New York. Vin Scully, however, grew up in New York only to be associated primarily with the Dodgers of southern California. Putting possibly Tommy Lasorda aside for the moment, these are THE two main faces of the Dodgers franchise.

That is right Mateo. Vin is going for his 55th season broacasting in Los Angeles and his 64th season overall. That is an amazing record. And yes, Jackie grew up here. I’ve seen seen Jackie Robinson jerseys from Pasadena College and UCLA.
