Baseball Dreams: What I am waiting for

It has been a while since I have updated my blog.  I got the Hilda award from the Baseball Reliquary since then.  I still got to post about that and then there was the trip to the SABR convention in Philadelphia.  That was so much fun that I am ready for the next convention in Houston.

I was telling myself “I should post today before I return to Dodger Stadium” when I received email of Mark Newman’s latest blog post http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com/2013/08/09/what-are-you-waiting-for/  He titled it  “Baseball Dreams: One fan’s ultimate wish list”   He listed all he is waiting for then asked us ‘What are we waiting for?”

Apparently I was waiting for Mark so here goes.

On this Friday, after the Dodgers last road trip of 7-1, I am waiting for their return!  I am waiting to see my boys against the Rays!  I am waiting to see Dodger Stadium again, my home away from home.  I am waiting to applaud my beloved Dodgers for a job well done on road.

I am waiting to hear Nancy Bea at the organ.  I am waiting to hear el locuaz Pepe Yniguez,  Fernando Valenzuela and el Maestro Jaime Jarrin who will be a grand marshal at the Ecuadorian parade on Sunday that will end at Olvera Street.

I am waiting for the clock to say 4 p.m. so that I can leave work and head to Dodger Stadium.

I am waiting to see Tony Jackson return today to cover the Dodgers.  He no longer has the long hair.

I am waiting to see the ushers like Burnie, Cynthia, Raissa, JD, Margarita, Ernest, Leonard, Valerie and so many more.   I am waiting to see Loui to see if we are still going to go see Howie sing Jazzsinatra songs next Friday night.

I am waiting to see my friends at OLOCR (Our Lady of Chavez Ravine)  I am waiting to see my friend Lorena!.   I am waiting to meet Tom Jackson who is making a trip to Dodger Stadium with his teenage daughters and his girlfriend.

I am waiting to see Jon SooHoo, Jill, Juan, Jessica, Polo.  I am waiting to see my other boys in Blue that no longer play the game but still work for the Dodgers.

I am waiting to hear Adrian’s Gonzalez’s at bat song “El Mariachi Loco” so that Alan, Marta and any other friends around us can dance along.  We believe it helps Adrian bat better ;-)

I am waiting to see more sunsets at Dodger Stadium.

I am waiting to see Vin Scully and wish him a good night.  I am waiting for him to waive back and say in that so familiar tone “Good night”

I am waiting for the Think Cure weekend at Dodger Stadium and see what they have on the auction to help this great cause for the research of Cancer at City of Hope.

I am waiting for another road trip, this time to San Diego for the last Dodger games.  It is always a lot of fun to go see the Dodgers in San Diego.  I am waiting to see Ryu and Puig in their rookie hazing outfits.

I am waiting for October and playoffs.  It has been a while since we have seen the Dodgers in playoff games.  It has been longer (25 years) since we have seen them in a World Series.

It is a great time for Baseball for a lot of us fans with the Pirates playing well and in first place.  The Tigers and the Braves with a 10 game winning streak.  The Dodgers 8-2 in the last 10 games.  The Rangers 9-1 in the last 10 and going neck in neck with the Oakland A’s.

I am waiting for a fun October!
