Happy birthday Roberto Clemente and Lorena. Civil Rights Game. Not Exactly Cooperstown film

Happy birthday Roberto Clemente!    Roberto would have been 78 today August 18, 2012.  In addition to heck of a player, he was a great humanitarian. 

Today is also my friend Lorena’s birthday.   Happy birthday kid!   That is nice that you share a birthday with the great one, Roberto Clemente. 

Dodgers in Atlanta.  Civil Right Game.  Don NewCombe

Dodgers at Atlanta.   They have lost two in a row.  Don Mattingly will start serving his two day suspension today.   It does not look like Matt Kemp will be suspended.   Angel Campos should not have ejected him for cheering for Andre Ethier.  Today is the Civil Right game.  

Today Don Newcombe received the Beacon of Hope Award.  Congratulations Mr. Newcombe!
