The video where I got to say “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!” at Dodger Stadium

Las year during Social Septiember I was watching batting practice when William read a twitter that said “The first person that goes upstairs by the Vin Scully Press box will get to do be on the field to say “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball” He thought it was too late to go upstairs, but I told him if you don’t want to go check I’ll check so I rushed up the stairs. Sure enought I was the first one! so I got to say what Vin Scully says at the beginning of each Dodger game, “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!”

I had not gotten the video until recently so I uploaded it. :-)

Thank you to the Dodgers and to William! I love you William :-)

Here are two pictures from that day that I got thanks to Jon SooHoo. Thank you Jon!

The White Sox with Robin Ventura are at Dodger Stadium starting tomorrow. Kershaw goes to the mound against Sale. Let’s Go Dodgers! It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!

Tommy Lasorda giving hitting instructions at Spring Training

Here is a short video I shot of Tommy Lasorda dressed in his batting practice jersey giving instructions to the minor leaguers on how to hit. :-)   “You got an ax in your hand”  “you are chopping the tree down”  “como esta la republica?”

Follow the Dodgers from LA to AZ to NV

 Our last trip to Arizona included a trip to Las Vegas to see the Dodgers play against the Cubbies.  Our first stop was Camelback Ranch to watch the Boys in Blue practice.  We saw Loney so we sang to him:

Afterwards we headed to Surprise Stadium

If you can see the score, the Dodgers are losing in the 4th inning 3 to 9.  Things were going to get worst than that.

I forget in what inning, but Wilson Betemit (Ex Dodger) came to bat and I got hit with a foul ball.   It did not feel as bad as when I got hit a few years back at Dodger Stadium by a Heep Seop Choi foul ball

Next time this is going to be me catching a foul ball like this!

On the road now to Las Vegas to follow our Dodgers!  But first a little detour to Sedona, AZ

We stopped quite a few times to take pictures.

We got to Vegas like 11:30 at night and the following day we scrambled to get tickets as the game was sold out.   After checking a few websites, we were able to get two tickets together and a single one.  That meant we had to go to two different places to pick them up.  The first stop was drive to Sams Town area, the next stop was to drive to the strip by .the Mandalay Bay to pick up the two tickets.   Ok, now on our way to Cashman Stadium. 

The game was a close one but lots of running blunders by the Dodgers.    We got into a little heckling with Cubbie fans.  One sitting next to us was asking us  “why don’t you root for the Angels?” Which we told him “Why don’t you root for the White Sox?”  It was all in good fun.

Vin Scully made the trip to Las Vegas as he was broadcasting his first Spring Training game.

 Prior to the game, from the lower section, I yelled “VIN SCULLY!  WE LOVE YOU!”   I did it three times until the lady sitting next to him saw me and heard  me so she told Vin.   Vin got up, saluted me from above then he  saw my t-shirt and gave me the A OK sign!  The lady asked me to turn around so Vin could see the back.  Vin again gave the OK sign!    It was a great moment!


 

Dodgers lost to the Cubs by one run.  Wtih that, we headed back to LA.  

Next stop:  Dodger Stadium for the Freeway Series then on to Opening Day March 31st.
