Dodger Pitchers and Catchers and then some have reported!

Happy New Season everyone!   Pitchers and Catchers have reported!!  Woohoo!!!

Now is a new count!   11 day and 20 hours before the first Spring Training game!

Yesterday I was going to go to MLB Urban Youth Academy in Compton but I got sick :-(.   Southern University (Baton Rouge, La) was playing against my sister college Cal State Northridge.  And in the second game  Bethune-Cookman University was playing against UCLA.   Anyone catch the games on MLB Network? 

Rod Carew, Don Newcombe and Frank Robinson threw out the first pitches.

Here is another pic:   “Catchers and Catchers reporting”   Russell Martin and Brad Ausmus are looking good!!!!   I LOVE IT!!!!

Thank you Jon!  You are the best!!

 

So this transplanted Red Sox fan at work wanted to bet me that Manny will show up late to Spring Training.  Guess what?  He is already reported so come Monday I will collect on the bet!!

 

The pitcher that is late reporting is Ron Belisario as he again has trouble with his visa.    

Happy P&C Day!  Happy Sunday!  

Breakfast, Photo Day, Game Day & Bluetopia Movie.

Billingsley picked up his 3rd win even though the Rockies were getting him into deep counts.   Manny along with Ethier went yard with two homeruns! 

BLUETOPIA

The day was topped by watching the Dodger premiere movie “Bluetopia”.   Tim Marx did a wonderful job of capturing the fans love for our beloved Dodgers.  I laughed, I cheered  and got choked up watching it.   James Loney, Billingsley, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Kershaw attended.    I’ll say more later about the event.  I am glad that I got to go and sit with my friends that I have made because of our love for our Dodgers.
