Rest in Peace Dr. Frank Jobe

As a member of the Baseball Reliquary, I am proud that I voted for Dr. Frank Jobe in 2012.  He was elected to the Baseball Reliquary Shrine of the Eternals that year on July 15, 2012.   The day before, Dr. Frank Jobe was at Dodger Stadium with Tommy John throwing out the first pitch

Rest in peace Dr. Frank Jobe.  I think The Hall of Fame should have done something for Dr Jobe a long time ago.  Dr. Jobe was the  greatest  man of Sport medicine.  Nobody else has contributed as much to the sport as he has.   Thank you Dr. Jobe.

Trader Joe’s Dodger Fearless Fan of the Day

Who remembers when Trader Joe’s and the Dodgers had the “Fearless Fan of the Day” At Dodger stadium?   I remember that day during batting practice I was walking with a Trader Joe’s bag in the field level when a lady stopped me and asked me if I wanted to be the “Fearless fan of the day”.  she said “you get to go on the field, but  you have to wear this”. The this was a Dodger Hawaiian shirt. She had me at “you get to go on the field”.  What I can’t remember is what year that was.

Here is the video from that day;

 

Dodger Stadium Mural at LAPD Northeast Division

One early morning on my way to the Glendale train station to catch up with my train, I noticed this mural that included Dodger Stadium.  I did not have a chance to stop but the next time that I took the train there, I made sure to stop and take pictures.

    It is located at the LAPD Northeast division on San Fernando Boulevard.    It shows Dodger Stadium, the Police Academy that is next door to Dodger Stadium.  In this picture too is the Los Angeles Zoo.

Here is another part of the mural

Griffith Park.

And here is another part of this long beautiful mural that measures 21’X16′.  The mural was designed and painted by more than a dozen young artists.

22 Days – Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw’s days till Opening Day! This wants me want to dance in the rain!

Clayton Kershaw

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.

Clayton Kershaw

Clayton Kershaw watches the flight of his first career home run, starting the scoring in his own 4-0 shutout of the Giants last Opening Day.

If it becomes official, then all Kershaw has to do is maintain his pace and he could be known one day as the greatest Opening Day pitcher.

In his three Opening Day starts over the last three years, the left-hander has thrown 19 scoreless innings and the Dodgers are 3-0. That included seven innings (9 strikeouts) in a 2-1 home win over the Giants…

It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!!

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!

Sandy Koufax drilled by line drive is OK.

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.

32 Days – Sandy Koufax

Don Drysdale had generally handled the Opening Day assignment for the Dodgers in that era of their 1-2 domination on the mound following the club’s move from Brooklyn. The big right-hander started on Opening Day in 1958-61, ’63 and ’65. Johnny Podres had started it in ’62, the first game at Dodger Stadium. For Koufax, ’64 was his turn and his time.

Koufax had been named Most Valuable Player of the 1963 World Series, leading the Dodgers to a sweep of the Yankees and then receiving a unanimous Cy Young Award as well as National League…

Vin Scully Microphone MOCK

By Josh Tucker

The Dodgers 2014 promotional calendar launched with a Vin Scully 65th Anniversary Commemorative Item. Today, the item officially becomes the Vin Scully 65th Anniversary Microphone.

We only have the initial sketch, but this immediately becomes one of the most unique and meaningful Dodgers promotional items in recent memory. The microphone will include a voice chip for fans to press a button and hear Vin. We have a feeling those words will be, “It’s time for Dodger baseball!” The Hall of Fame broadcaster will have his name inscribed on the base.

Get tickets to Vin Scully 65th Anniversary Microphone giveaway night. For the entire 2014 promotional calendar, click here.
