Feliz cumpleaños Pepe Yñiguez

Pepe Yñiguez is part of the Dodgers Spanish broadcasters.  He is entering his 14th year with the Dodgers.  He has also hosted “Central Deportiva”, a werkly sports talk show on KWKW.  He has also broadcasted many events for Fox Sports International including the 1997-2005 World Series.  He has also broadcasted the 1997 MLB All Star Game and the Caribeean Series.  In addition, from 1993-1995 he also served as the Spanish radio broadcaster for the Los Angeles Raiders. 

Recently Pepe Yñiguez was telecasting Dodger games in Spanish along with Manny Mota on cable.  Because of the increase in Spanish telecasts this year, Jaime Jarrin’s son, Jorge will be covering those games with Manny Mota.  

Yñiguez will continue to broadcast games on the radio KTNQ with Hall of Famer Jaime Jarrin and commentator Fernando Valenzuela.  

Pepe is very knowledgeable in the game of baseball.   In Pepe’s voice you can hear the passion that he has for the game.  His golden voice captures the audience.    Recently during Spring Training, my friend Lorena and I spent some time talking baseball with Pepe.   As is often the case when I get together with Terry Cannon of the Baseball Reliquary & Steve Seemayer, we lost track of time talking our favorite subjects: Baseball & The Dodgers.  

Que tengas un bonito dia Pepe.   Que tengas una gran temporada.  Que pronto se te conceda transmitir un no-hitter y que tambien Los Dodgers ganen pronto una Serie Mundial para que te des el gusto de transmitir esos partidasos.   Compartes tu cumpleanos con Cy Young.

May you have a beautiful day Pepe.  May you have a great season.  May you soon get a chance to transmit a no-hitter and also may the Dodgers soon win a World Series so that you would have the  pleasure of transmitting such great games.  You share a birthday with Cy Young

Upcoming Dodgers Homestand, Promotions and a Caption

Dodgers return on Monday Memorial Day for a 13 game homestand.    Lots of games and promotions for this homestand. 

Monday. 5/31.  Manny Ramirez kids BP jersey.  Arizona in town.

Thursday. 6/3.   Matt Kemp Action figure (kids only)  BTW, I think this picture is lame, but the Dodgers posted it asking for a caption.    

Give me a caption and whoever I think is the best, I’ll think of something to send you.  I think that chalk line looks so wrong.

Friday 6/4 is 70’s Day and Loney and Blake giveaway poster.  I have not seen the poster but I’ve been told it has a 70’s Chevelle.  Is is Blue or Red?  

Sunday 6/6.  Viva Los Dodgers.  This year every Sunday is Viva Los Dodgers.  I prefer it back to only one special Sunday. 

Tuesday 6/8.  Jonathan Broxton BBH.   The Cardinals are in town starting Monday 6/7 for three.

Friday 6/11 and Saturday 6/12 is the THINKCURE radio telethon with the Angels in town.  Maybe I can bid on something from Mike Scioscia.

Jose Lima and Lima Time at Dodger Stadium

Jose Lima gave the Dodgers the first play-off victory in 16 years! 16 Years! Imagine that!

It was 2004 when Jose Lima went to Vero Beach as a Spring Training invitee and he gave us that incredible playoff performance against the Cardinals in 2004.

 Jose Lima was a joy to watch and we Dodger fans love that he always had time to sign autographs for us and pose for pictures. If you were at the stadium, you could easily get his autograph and take your picture with him.

I will never forget that game nor your singing and dancing performance at the VIVA LOS DODGERS festival and you singing the National Anthem.

This picture is from May 15, 2004. There I am with my hand-made scorebook. Jose Lima would sit there and pose for pictures and sign autographs on days that he was not pitching

We will never forget you Jose Lima!

Vin Scully made a comment that “Young and Old, we all will get our time and it was Lima’s time”

I wore my 2004 playoff hat to Sunday’s game at Dodger Stadium. I was at that game for our first playoff win in 16 games. I remember I wrote “LIMA TIME” in my rally towel and when I exited I got interviewed by KCAL Channel 9 and also the Spanish station Channel 34.

The following day, Lima was again signing autographs and I regretted that I did not take a copy of the Sport Section with me from the LA Times. There was a beautiful picture of him there that I still have somewhere in my house.

Jose Lima was at Dodger Stadium Friday night. He was shown on the Dodger Vision and we gave him a big round of applause and a standing ovation.

He had recently joined the Dodger community crew and had just opened a baseball academy in Pasadena. I ran into Ben Platts of MLB.COm and he told me that he was supposed to go to the academy and interview Lima.

What a great addition he would have made the the Dodger Community group!

Rest peace Jose Lima. Our thoughts and prayers to you, your family and friends.

Dodgers tied for first with the Padres! Rest in Peace Jose Lima

I don’t like inter-league games but I am glad to see the Tigers for a chance to see Sparky Anderson at the game!   

Here is a great picture of Joe Torre, Sparky Anderson and Leyland.   pic from Jon Soohoo.

Torre Sparky and Leyland.jpg

Is too bad the game was part of the game of the week so no Vinny.  Maybe Sparky will be back today Sunday when the Dodgers go for the sweep!  

You all remember my little broom (size of a pencil_no brooms allowed at Dodger Stadium) that I took to San Diego?  Well I am taking to Dodger Stadium today.  

 

Fear the Beard Case Blake had a homerun and so did Matt Kemp.  Matt had not hit one out since Ned Colletti’s rant to the media.  

Here is Kemp sporting the “In Beard we Trust” tshirt of Casey

Saturday it was Taiwan Day in the “This is My Town” section so it was nice that Hong-Chih Kuo and Fu Te Ni  got in the game.  The promotion includes  Taiwanese food and a t-shirt.  The night before  it was “Star Wars Day” and it was fun seeing all the characters of Star Wars.    

Here is a picture of the section with Taiwanese fans going bonkers seeing Kuo on the mound.  Notice the Dodger Stadium Club below which now has outside seating. 

This is my town Taiwan .jpg 

 

John Ely.

In his last four games, he had not given up a walk until Saturday.  This kid is not afraid to go after the hitters.  He had a shaky first inning Saturday but he settled just fine after that.   I wonder why the White Sox included him in the trade with Juan Pierre.    Oh and he is also in MLBblog Baseball fantasy team.     So another win for the Dodgers and another win for the Locos Azules.

Let’s Go Dodgers!

Going for the sweeep today!      

Note:  I picked up Edwin Encarnacion after he came back from the DL and he has hit 5 homeruns for me since May 18!    WOW!   I forgot who dropped him.  

 

Ice Cream Time!

 

Walter O’Malley had a tradition of treating his staff to ice cream at 2:00 P.M. every day that the Dodgers were in first place.   This tradition is still carried over to this day at Dodger Stadium.  

Rest in Peace Jose Lima.   Sad news of Jose Lima, 37 passing away of a heart attack.  I just saw him Friday night at Dodger Stadium.   He had started a baseball school here in the LA area.   We will never forget “LIMA TIME”  Rest in peace Lima.
