Homenaje a Jaime Jarrin. Paying Tribute to Jaime Jarrin

Esta mañana cuando iba manejando a tomar el tren para el trabajo, la estacion de radio El Recuerdo tenia una entrevista con Jaime Jarrin. La mañana estaba nublada y el trafico pesado pero la entrevista alegró mi mañana.

This morning while driving to take the train to work, the radio station “El Recuerdo” was interviewing Jaime Jarrin. The morning was clowdy and the traffic heavy but hearing the interview brighten my morning.

Jaime estaba siendo entrevistado pro Silvia Botello por sus 54 años cubriendo los Dodgers y porque el proximo Lunes, Jaime va a ser homenajeado en Dodger Stadium. En su honor esta camiseta sera dada a las primeras 30,000 aficionados..

Jaime was being interviewed by Silvia Botello for his 54 years covering the Dodgers and because next Monday Jaime is going to honored at Dodger Stadium. In his honor the following t-shirt will be given to the first 30,000 fans

the ball is going going and kiss it goodbye!

Me encanta la camiseta y la usare con orgullo!:.

I love the t-shirt and I will be wearing it with pride!

Despues de escuchar la entrevista y ya en el tren, me fui a la pagina de El Recuerdo para leer la entrevista. Habia mas information alli de lo que escuche.:.

After hearing the interview and already on the train, I went to “El Recuerdo” website to read the interview. There was more there than what I heard.

Lo unico que no me gusto es leer que Jaime piensa retirarse en tres años mas :-( No quiero pensar en esas fechas cuando se retire Vin Scully y Jaime Jarrin. Para nosotros los oyentes son parte de nuestra familia cuando los dejamos entrar a nuestros hogares, nuestros carros, nuestros trabajos, y a todas partes incluyendo Dodger Stadium donde cargando nuestros radios o nuestros telefonos equipados para escucharlos donde quiera que nos encontremos.

The only thing I did not like reading is that Jaime is thinking of retiring in three more years :-( I don’t want to think of those days when Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin retire. For us the listeners, they are part of our family when we allow them to come into our homes, our cars, our jobs and everywhere else including Dodger Stadium where we carry our radios or our phones equipped to listen to them wherever we may be.

Pero entre tanto disfrutemos escuchandolos. Aqui les dejo otros dichos de Jaime y mi pobre traduccion

But in the meantime, let’s enjoy them listening to them. I leave you with other Jaime’s sayings along with my poor translation:

Cantado el 3er strike!
Called 3rd strike.

Se quedó con la carabina al hombro ponchándose.
He was left with the rifle on his shoulders striking out.

Las bases llenas, el rancho ardiendo
The bases are full and the Ranch is in flames

Listo el pitcher, lanzamiento! Sooobre el plato!
The pitcher ready, the pitch! Over the plate!

y, le tiiiira y se pooonchaaa!!
The pitch and he strikes out!

se van los Dodgers comiendo de la mano como corderitos.
Dodgers go down one two three like lambs eating out of the hands.

Ya veo las casitas de mi pueblo.
I already see the little houses of my town. When the game is near the end.

Feliciades señor Jaime!!!!

Mark, We LA Fans are very lucky!

I honestly had NO idea that Dodgers games were broadcast in spanish, too. Shows just how sheltered I am! Sounds like he does a great job.

Yes, Mike. Dodger games have been broadcasted in Spanish since the team moved to Los Angeles in 1958. Well you gave me an idea on a post seeing how many teams also broadcast in Spanish. Were the Dodgers the first?
