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.
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!

Watch out for those quotes!
the Dodger family is complete with Sandy Koufax and now Vin Scully at Camelback!
Welcome back Vin!
Like Hilda Chester used to tell you
VIN SCULLY I LOVE YOU!
Dodgers against the Cubs at Camelback Ranch! Wish I was there.
Billingsley starts against Barney.
I am skipping my Pilates class at noon (we have classes at work at noon Monday, Tuesday and Thursday) to listen to the game.
Vin Scully quote about Billinglsey giving out already a single, a home run and two doubles ”Sure, you hate to be lather…”
Juan Uribe is the first baseman for this game.
Mike Piazza is at Camelback Ranch. DylanHearnandez reported that Mike said of Vin Scully: ”I’d love to see him” I hope to apologize.
When the Dodgers posted the first picture of Sandy Koufax suit up in Dodger Blue, I got excited! I had seen him Sunday at Camelback Ranch with a white long sleeve t-shirt and jogging pants. Unfortunately we had to leave Sunday so we did not get to see him Monday all dressed in Dodger Blue. But that is OK, just seeing the pictures, I got super excited. I could not wipe a big smile off my face while I work on President’s Day.
The pictures below are from Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo who does an excellent job. check out all the photos here:

We are smiling and laughing with joy seeing Sandy back wearing Dodger Blue.
