I hope everyone is having a beautiful Jackie Robinson Day! I am off in a few minutes to my beloved OLOCR (Our Lady of Chavez Ravine). I got my Jackie Robinson jersey in the car!
I am still high from the great Opening Day! After Vin Scully threw out the ceremonial first pitch, I could not stop the tears when I heard Vin say “Two things, #1 In all the years I needed you more than you needed me”. ”#2. Is time now for Dodger Baseball”. He threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Joe Torre. Joe came over afterwards and touched his face. Vin’s wife was wearing a beautiful baby blue dress.
The players were announced in numerical order with Tommy Lasorda being first with his #2 retired number. No, he did not have his uniform on. He only wears it during Spring Training. the players came out from the field level and the outfielders and pitchers from the left field pavilion. The last number coming out was #99 Manny.
We all heard O-Dog hit for the cycle, Andre hit two homeruns but Chad Billingsley cannot be overlooked in his great performance where he did not walk a batte rand he struck out
13. 11. Thanks LuvDodgers23 for the correction!
Wishing you all a great Jackie Robinson Day!
Last night I attended the only exhibition game against the Angels. What was up with that? We usually play them for 3 games! Tonight we face Milwaukee for two exhibition games then my beloved Dodgers fly to San Francisco for one exhibition game then to San Diego for Monday Opening Day there. What a crazy way to end exhibition and start the season!
Last night it was reunion day greeting and hugging the same people that I see day in and day out during the baseball season. Not everyone has made it back yet but tonight, tomorrow night and Opening Day I’ll get to see the rest. My brother said that he was observing me and that I looked like a fish in water when I get to the stadium. I LOVE IT THERE!
I was and still is fighting a cold. I dont want to get sick!!! I got games to see and the trip to San Diego to catch a couple of games there! I stocked up this morning on Dayquil and I am drinking lots of liquids.
I put on the board at work the vacation days I am taking. Someone drew a baseball next to it :-).
I don’t care if it is exhibtion but is always good to beat the Angels! Bragging rights on the train with two Angel fans there! How sweeet.
I bought a a new Big 5 Scorebook, I got pencils, I got my radio, my binos, my glove, my tickets, my sunblock, my cold medicine in case I need it. I am ready for tonight!
Bring on the Brew Crew because our Big Blue Wrecking Crew is back!!
