The Last Three Videos from the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium

I divided the video recording into three four videos so here are the final three.  

This one is 5.59 minutes

This one is 2:30 minutes.   This is the one where Pensando Azul asks Vinny “what ring is he wearing”.  He was wearing 1988 and he said it has been a long time. 

And this is the last one.  Here is where I asked Vinny if he is going to New York.  It is more like I blurted it out.  

Vin is right (he is always right) that the Dodgers playing in New York the night before and then the following night in San Diego is …well a little rough.  Why is the schedule that way where the Dodgers play Tuesday and Wednesday at Yankee Stadium (why only two games?) and then Thursday thru Sunday at San Diego.   Why not a day off on Thursday.   I do hope something is changed where Vin can make the game but I understand if he does not.   

WE LOVE YOU VIN!!

Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium. Vin Scully Video One.

Here is the first video I recorded of Vin Scully at the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium.  

I did not realize until the second day that the first person that asked a question is my twitter friend Pensando Azul.  Neither one of us knew the other one was going to be there.  

Vin mentioned that he is a fan of Baseball Prospectus.  Love the man!  

Two more days till I head to Cincinnati  

 

Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium. Logan White Videos

I was so looking forward to attending the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium.  Vin Scully was the first speaker.   I video taped Vin with my flip but I have not upload that one  since that would take a little longer.    What I did upload first was the short videos with Logan White.  Apologies that I could not video tape the entire Logan White part.  I had used most of the time left in the Flip for Vin Scully.     

Here is the first of part of Logan White:

Here is the second part of Logan White video taped:

Thank you so much to everyone at Baseball Prospectus that put this  event together at Dodger Stadium!  Thank you to Joe Hamrahi, Vin Scully, Dan Evans, Logan White and Steve Garvey.  I had a wonderful time!

Cochito Cruuuuuuuz saves the day! Vin Scully at Baseball Prospectus event

Thank you Baseball Gods for Cochito Cruuuuuuuuuuz !    Dodger Stadium went crazy when Cruuuuuuuuuz sent the three run homerun deep into the Dodger bullpen.   The chant started again “CRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZ” and an exuberant Cruz came out of the Dodger dugout to acknowledge the fans.  

The night started with Andre Ethier hitting a two run homerun.   After the game was over I was able to wish “good night” to Vin Scully who answered me back with a “Good Night” :-)   

The fireworks were extra special with the win and the music set to Mexican music.  Lorena and I were singing along.  

Saturday:  Baseball Prospectus event with Vin Scully!

I am heading to the stadium for this special event!

Today September 15, is Honduras Independence!  Felicidades la patria que me vio nacer!   Yes, I was born in Honduras.

Feliz Dia de El Locutor. Jaime Jarrin’s Anniversary and I will see Vin Scully on Saturday

Dodgers lost to the Cardinals.  It was another frustrating night at Dodger Stadium with the team lack of hitting.  

The highlight of the game  on Thursday:   the Cool-A-Coo!  It hit the spot and brought back so many memories back when I used to watch Fernando pitch, back when Scioscia was behind home plate, back when the team was known as “The Big Blue Wrecking Crew”  

Another highlight last night:  Hanging out with  friends especially Lore and little Rachel

Thank you Rachel for my drawing!  I love it! 

Here is Rachel again.  She is a cutie.  She and her sister Elizabeth and her parents are season ticket holders.  I’ve been seeing since they were babies.    

Jaime Jarrin’s Hollywood Star Anniversary. 

On this day, September 14, 1998 – Jaime Jarrin received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Feliz Dia de El Locutor

Felicidades a Jaime Jarrin, Pepe Yniguez y a Fernando Valenzuela!   Ojala que celebren con una victoria de los Dodgers.  Let’s hope you celebrate with a Dodger victory.   Feliciadades muchachos!

Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium

Saturday I am looking forward to attending the  Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium.   In addition to  meeting   many of Baseball Prospectus personalities​, Vin Scully will also make a special appearance!  

​There will also be a question and answer session with industry guests including Los Angeles Dodgers Assistant GM, Amateur and International Scouting Logan White.

The private event is sold out so I am glad that I signed up!

So I was remembering reading about the time Hilda Chester colored her hair red to change the Dodgers luck.  They went on to win that day.

Dodgers and Cards battle it out at Dodger Stadium for Four

I have not had time to post here and after the Dodgers performance, I was a little frustrated.  

 Dodgers lost the two game series with the Diamond Backs at Arizona.  Now they are back at Dodger Stadium but they have not played well at home!   Well, they have not play well on the road either but the home record is worst.  

Something got to give since The Cardinals have not done well either.  They got swept by the Padres!   The Padres are playing very well.   

Somebody got to score starting tonight!   I was telling a friend at work “The Dodgers can’t score even with  pockets  full of bills in a whorehouse”   haha can I say that here? 

I love my Cardinal fan friends but I hope your team goes down tonight! DFW 003.jpg

I wonder if Cardinal girl is going to any of the games.

Koufax found wondering in the parking lot

Getting to the stadium early for batting practice you meet a lot of fans.   Last night on Sandy Koufax bobblehead night,  after the 7th inning stretch we noticed Michael who we usually see during BP, was standing behind us.  He was asking “Who did I miss during BP?   We told him “Maury Wills was signing”   He has gotten Maury Wills autograph before.  We also told him Sandy Koufax did not appear to be at the stadium that night.  He then started telling us why he was late.   Here is his story:  

“I got to the stadium early today (8/7) because it was not just a bobble head game, but the Sandy Koufax bobble head game. The most popular bobble head, right up there with the upcoming Vin Scully bobble head.

I was able to park on Stadium Way in front of the Barlow Hospital, and around 4:40pm, walked over to wait with the other fans at the Elysian Park entrance, where we would be let in at 5:10pm.

I saw three boys petting and playing with a young kitten who was just laying on the sidewalk just inside the Dodger Stadium parking gate. I asked if it was their kitten and they said no, they had just found it there. One of the boys was able to pick the kitten up and it seemed pretty tame. I picked the kitten up, and it appeared to be a boy and about eight weeks old. I went to the front of the line with the kitten and told the security guard about it. I said I wanted to take the kitten home, but wondered if someone at Dodger Stadium could keep it somewhere until the end of the game. The security officer said probably not, and pointed me to the main parking hut, where the security guards let people into the stadium. I told them my story, and they said they couldn’t help, but did offer me some water for the kitten.

My options seemed to be to have security call animal services and pick up the kitten, or leave the kitten in my car until the game was over some five or six hours later.

Neither opinion seemed reasonable, as I didn’t want the kitten taken to the pound, nor did I want to leave it in a car for hours when it was about 90 degrees out. I also didn’t think leaving the kitten where it was found was very safe, as it was next to the 10 lanes of traffic where people drive in and out of Dodger Stadium.

While my daughter Dianna kept the kitten company in the car, I went to the Barlow Hospital but they couldn’t help either. I called the Dodger Fan Assistance line and they also could not help me.

I ended up calling my wife Donna, and she drove from Sherman Oaks, while I drove to back to Griffith Park, so we could meet half way at the zoo parking lot, and I passed the kitten over to her so she could take him home.

We ended up making it back to the game and getting our bobble heads, but missed batting practice and the chance to get autographs. A small price to pay for saving a life. The kitten is doing fine. We’re going to call him “Koufax.”

Meet Koufax

Thanks Michael for sharing the story and the pictures of your kitty Koufax.   Thank you for giving  little Koufax a home.

Bad Long Spell for the Dodgers. Good Luck Fife!

 I thought the All-Star break would work wonders for the Dodgers.  With Andre & Kemp back I thought things were going to start looking better.   but I better stop looking thru this:

Like the LA Times pointed out, they have lost 18 of the last 24!   They ended the first half

 game in first place but now they are:

Two games back of the Giants.

I thought the Dodgers were happy to have me back at Dodger Stadium after I went to the SABR convention

they lost two out of three from the Padres.  They lost the first game to the Phillies and tonight the kid  Fife has been called from Albuquerque to replace Billingsley who has gone on the DL with elbow soreness.   the 25 year old Fife will make his MLB debut against gulp…Halladay.  

Let’s Go Dodgers!

Let’s Go Fife!

Yeah, I am still looking thru the colored glasses.  

Is Beach Chair night tonight!  

I anderstand we will get a voucher for the chair and we go pick it up after the game.  For those that only come for the giveaway, they will turn around, pick up their giveaway and leave.   Let’s see how this works picking up the giveaway AFTER the game.  At least the giveaway are not bats or baseballs  givin prior to the game.

Dodgers are playing 20 games without a day off

With a combination of away and home games, the Dodgers are playing 20 consecutive games without a day off before the All-Star break.

It started with the Dodgers going to Oakland for three game where they got swept.

Then they headed to Anaheim where they lost two out of three.

After Sunday’s game they took a bus to Ontario to hop on the flight to San Francisco to play three there.

After the three in San Francisco they come home to play a four game series with the Mets starting Thursday.

Come Monday the Reds come to Dodger Stadium to play three. The Fourth of July game on Wednesday starts at 6:10.

After the Fireworks game, is off to the airport to start a four game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

WOW! a tough test ahead for Mattingly and the Dodgers. If they can turn it aorund and do well they can do this:

By then, Matt Kemp should be ready to come back and we can see him doing this:
