Dodgers at PNC during G-20 Summit

After being at Washington DC my Dodgers have to deal with the security in Pittsburgh as a result of the G-20 Summit.   My poor babies!  Traveling secretary Scott Akasaki had to make special arrangements

From Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times

A ban on incoming private charter flights to Pittsburgh was imposed by the Secret Service and Major League Baseball had to receive a special waiver so the Dodgers could get into town.  The waiver was granted under the condition that the Dodgers would hve to go through TSA lines at Washington Dullies Aiport and have their bags sniffed by bomb-sniffing dogs. 

 

Akasai told players that they culdn’t carry alcohol or cologne in their carry-on baggage.

Because of the various checkpoints, Akasaki booked rooms at a hotel on the outskirts of the designated security zones instead of at the regular team hotel in the heart of downtown.  But there is expected to be added security in the new hotel, as it is housing the French, German and Turkish delegations at the G-20. 

So with all this security, expect a smaller crowd than usual at PNC tonight.  I made my first trip to PNC last year.  It is such a beautiful stadium.  Here is a picture

 I love Jerry Crowe from the L.A. Times.  Here is what he wrote this morning:

For those who can’t get enough of Tim McCarver -anybody?_the Fox baseball analyst has released a music CD, “Tim McCarver Sings the Great Ameerican Songbook.”… 

One of the songs he tackles is “There Used to be a Ballpark,” which will remind no one of Frank Sinatra’s version….   

LOL

Congratulations to Matt Kemp  on his 100 RBI plateau!

 

 

Good Luck Garland!   Let’s Go Dodgers!

Magic number:
