Pitchers and Catchers Report

Pitchers and Catchers Report.  What Do these beautiful four words mean?

I asked Pepe Yniguez (Dodger Spanish Broadcaster for the last 18 years) what does it mean to him “Pitchers and Catchers report” He said “To me it means that It’s time for Dodger Baseball! That the 2015 season is around First Base”

To me it marks the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring.   It means palm trees and the sound of batted baseballs. It means sun screens.  It means mornings of hearing from beat writers about workouts on dewy grass outfields.  It means batting cages and practice mounds.  It means we finally will start getting baseball news everyday!

Getting daily baseball news about Pitchers and Catchers reporting brings me such freshets of pleasure.

We baseball fans await with much anticipation baseball news and that special sense of the upcoming season that feed our eternal hopes every Spring.   We  soak-up all the quotes from our  grizzled Pitchers and Catchers.

I can more or less go into a cave during the Winter but I come out all giddy with excitement when I hear those words “Pitchers and Catcher report.”

Don Mattingly, Deuce and more Dodger fans at the LA Kings Game for Dodger Pride Night

It was Dodger Pride Night at the LA Kings game at the Staple Center last night.   No, I could not go, I had a doctor’s appointment at 6:p.m.    but plenty of my friends went.  

That is Dee at the end.  She is the one that has Vin Scully’s picture tattoo.    Way to represent guys

Deuce was honorary team captain!!


What an awesome day for you Deuce!

Thumbnail image for walking with one shoe.jpgSorry I missed it.   After the doctor’s office I decided to go to Nordstrom Rack and you wont guess what happened to me.   I was looking at the endless racks of shoes (they had a sale).  Anyway, one of the ones I tried on, I walked with it, walked some more to see if I really liked it.   I took it off then noticed I did not have my own shoe and I had forgotten where I left my black Ann Klein loafer.  I looked and looked then I asked the sales lady that was arranging the shoes.  She helped me look for it but neither of us could find it and it was closing time.       

I left my name and description of the shoe and walked kind of limping with  one shoe thinking “why does this happen to me?”

 Let’s see if they call me tomorrow telling me they found my shoe.  

On other news, I renewed my Dodger season tickets today.  Today  is the last day you could renew without the Dodgers releasing your seats.

I miss my Dodger fan friends!   See you soon at Dodger Stadium!
