Dodgers Last Road Series: San Diego

The Dodgers are going into San Diego with a 3-3 road trip record in this their final road trip.   They saw the Nationals and the Reds celebrate winning their division.    I believe this is the first time that I am on the road seeing another team celebrating.

Josh Becket starts tonight against Volquez.

I am not going to this series  but is very tempting to jump into my car and head to San Diego>

Last Six game Home Stand!  Carmageddon Weekend.

I am looking forward to the last Dodger homestand  with three games with  Colorado Rockies and then the  Giants are in town for three.  Here is what is coming up at Dodger Stadium:

Friday 9/28:

The Friday night fireworks will be set to the music of Frank Sinatra.   Dodgers will be celebrating Tommy Lasorda and Sweet Lou’s birthday which was September 22nd.

Saturday 9/29: 

Happy 50th Baseball  Anniversary Manuel Jeronimo Mota! 

Saturday is the Gran Fiesta.  The final Viva Los Dodgers.     The game time  has been changed to 6:10 pm.   The Gran Fiesta will start four hours before.     Also Pepe Yniguez told me that Manny Mota will be honored for his 50 year Baseball Anniversary!   Felicidades Manny!   Te queremos mucho!

It seems not long ago that picture was taken but it was Spring Training when you can see Manny Mota riding his bike.

Sunday 9/30

Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday.  For those traveling down the 405 Freeway, don’t forget is Carmageddon weekend.

Dodgers close the regular season with three games with the Giants starting Monday.  Wednesday’s game has a rare start of 4:15 pm.

Dodgers Bowling Extravaganza & Bad Moon Rising

Dodgers are off today.   They got swept by the hated Giants at home.  It was sad being at Dodger Stadium and watching this.  Dodgers never led in any of the three games.  

So what are some Dodgers doing tonight?

Bad Moon Rising: Baseball and the Summer of ’68

 
The bowling is too much money for me  so tonight I will be at the Bad Moon Rising:  Baseball and the Summer of ’68 exhibition at the Burbank Central Library.   The exhibition is up until September 27, 2012 but tonight is the discussion and book signing with Tim Wendel, author of Summer of ’68: The Season that Changed Baseball-and America-Forever.  
 
The event is free and is put together by the Baseball Reliquary. 
 
Among the topics examined in the exhibition are the record-setting achievevements of pitchers Bob gibson, Denny McLain and Don Drysdale, baseball reaction to the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert Kennedy, the World Series matchup between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers, the riots, the final major league season for Mickey Mantle, the emergence of Football.
