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
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.

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!
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.

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.
I just read this week’s Workpress Photo Challenge https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/photo-challenge-juxtaposition/comment-page-4/#comment-300964 and right away I thought of the pictures I took today at Dodger Stadium. The juxtaposition of the elements at Dodger Stadium with tonight’s hockey game.
Hockey game at a Baseball Stadium? Yes! LA The Kings will meat the Anaheim Ducks. The San Gabriel mountains in the background.
pictures taken by me in the Top Deck of Dodger Stadium. My Dodger purse showing
Hockey sticks and other merchandise are being sold at Dodger Stadium to commemorate this historical hockey game.
