Dodger Caravan! Happy birthday dad.

Dodger Caravan has been announced!   

Caravans are great! The best one was in 2008 at Panda Inn where James Loney and Andre Ethier were our waiters! It was AWESOME having them say to us “Is there anything else I can get you?’

Caravan ImageThe Los Angeles Dodgers will embark on their annual Dodgers Community Caravan presented by USC University Hospital on Monday, February 1 – Wednesday, February 3. The Caravan will kick-off with a stop at USC University Hospital with visits from Dodger Legends and broadcast personalities. On Tuesday and Wednesday the Caravan’s first visit each day will be the two hospitals that are partners in the ThinkCure effort, City of Hope and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles.

Each day will also provide fans with an up-close-and-personal opportunity to meet and hear from the Caravan members, participate in question-and-answer sessions, see demonstrations of professional baseball skills, procure autographs, win fabulous prizes, sign up for the free Kids Club Jr. Dodgers, purchase season ticket packages and Camelback Ranch-Glendale spring training tickets from the Dodgers ticket truck and, most importantly, take an offseason step toward getting ready for the 2010 Dodger season.

Caravan Image*All featured guests are subject to change and times listed at the “Open to the Public” and “Open to Customers” events are ballpark timeframes which may vary slightly.

The open to the public events provide the best opportunities to meet players and receive autographs. Fans should keep in mind, however, that even though the Dodgers will limit the number of autographs a fan can receive to ensure that as many are accommodated as possible, the club cannot, of course, guarantee everyone an autograph, as attendance will determine the number of fans the Dodgers can accommodate. The Dodgers will also hand out a limited quantity of Dodger promo items and ticket vouchers to fans in attendance at Trader Joe’s, Dodgers Dreamfield Dedication Ceremony at Los Angeles Boys & Girls Club, ESPN Zone @ L.A. LIVE, Roscoe’s, House of Chicken and Waffles, Best Buy and Olvera Street.

Happy birthday dad.  My dad Pedro would have been  79 today January 23rd.   He passed away 5 years this June.   My mom passed away when I was three.  How hard it must have been for dad to lose her with two kids to take care.   I had this picture painted from black and white pictures.   The painter did an incredible job.
