Clayton Kershaw’s days till Opening Day! This wants me want to dance in the rain!
Originally posted on Opening Day Countdown Down Under:
Clayton Kershaw is now likely to make a fourth consecutive Opening Day start for the Dodgers on March 22, three days after his 26th birthday, against Arizona in the first game of Major League Baseball’s Opening Series in Sydney, Australia. That became highly probable when Zack Greinke left his exhibition start after four pitches Thursday with a mild right calf strain.
It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!!
Ahhh. I’ve been waiting for this day! The first Dodger Spring Training game! So
like the apron says “The Heck with housework! Let’s see the Dodgers Play!”
Yesterday was also the launch of the Dodgers new TV Network: SportNetLA
When I got home from work, I spent all the evening watching SportNetLA until past midnight. While watching the station.
I also renewed my subscription to MLB at Bat so that I can listen to the game while I work, at Dodger Stadium and on the road.
Today is 24 days till the Dodgers Opening Day in Australia. When I think of #24, I think of
Walter Alston went on to manage the Dodgers on one-year contracts for 23 seasons (1954-1976).
Welcome back Baseball! I missed you!!
Lunch and Baseball! Baseball and food, my two favorite things!
What a scare we all got this morning when news got around that Sandy Koufax got hit in the forehead by a line drive.
The line drive was hit by Andre Either. Oh, we know Andre feels terrible. He was quoted by Dylan Hernandez saying “Your heart kind of leaps out of your body right there for a second.”
Ken Gurnick reported that Sandy Koufax stopped by the Press Box to reassure them that he was OK. Sandy underwent a CT scan and everything is fine.
The always funny
@DodgerzGM said: “Andre Ethier apologized to Koufax for hitting him in the head with a line drive. Said he was aiming for one of the other three outfielders. “ LOL
My friend Kent Whittaker twitted me “I thought Andre can’t hit lefties.” Funny one Kent.
Dylan Hernandez reported that Koufax jokingly said he might test the new protective cap for pitchers tomorrow. Good idea Sandy. I hope you do wear one.
Glad you are feeling better Sandy. We hope to see you with the protective cap tomorrow.
This makes me want to dance!! WOO-HOO!!!! 💃💃💃💃
Said I will be out of town for this game, but since I have season tickets, I will make sure my brother gets me the microphones.
Lorena told me about the Traveling Exhibit of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Gardena. We both went on Sunday. Too bad I did not hear about it before or I could have gone before when Maury Wills was there on February 1st. Here are some pictures I took:
These were the books in the exhbit but there were some others ones like “42″ for sale.
A very young Don Newcombe
I love the exhibition! Here is a picture of the three women that played baseball in the Negro Leagues. In the middle is Toni Stone, to the right is Connie Morgan, to the left is Mamie (Peanuts) Johnson, the only one that is alive. She is on the Baseball Reliquary list as one that we can vote for to be enshrined into the Hope of the Eternals. I am voting for her among others on the list.
Here is the Negro League Baseball Museum hat I bought with six team patches.
I am glad I got to go see this traveling exhibit and glad to be posting about it especially during Black History month
The exhibition in Gardena is there until Thursday February 13. The address is Nakaoka Community Center. 1670 W. 162nd Street. Admission is free.

Seeing all the pictures from Spring training at Camelback Ranch
brings a BIG SMILE to my face
I can’t wait to be there Saturday!!
hearing that beautiful sound of the ball going by and hitting the glove.
Looking at those crispy Dodger Blue and White uniforms.
Even Don Mattingly looks slim. I wish I too can report to Spring Training all skinny.
Fans turn into kids. Watching the morning workouts. Across chain link fence.
See you this weekend Dodgers!

The Beatles made their United States debut 50 years ago on this date in 1964 on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” By September, the Fab Four were appearing at Dodger Stadium in a promotion straight out of left field.
Stumbling in the 1964 standings and on their way to a sixth-place finish in the National League, the defending World Champions decided to jump on the Beatles bandwagon. To boost late-season box office interest, the team offered 12″ x 18″ portraits of the British singers by artist Nicholas Volpe, whose Union 76-sponsored illustrations of various Dodgers since 1959 had proved popular with Dodger fans and collectors.
