Don’t Miss the Big One!

Don’t miss the big what?  The 41st Annual Convention 2011!   This time is in Southern California.  July 6th to July 10. 

There is plenty to do at the convention in Long Beach!  Check out the presenters and the convention activities at http://sabr.org.  

This will be my first time attending a SABR convention.  I really wanted to go last year to Atlanta but I could not work it out into my schedule.  But this time being so close to home, I am there!   

I am also looking forward to meeting more members of SABR and going to the Dodger game on Friday night and the Angel game on Saturday.   Also the tour of historical Southern California ballparks sites, including Wrigley Field, The Los Angeles Coliseum, Gilmore Field, Washington Park and the Vernon ballpark.  

I am not sure if I can make it to see the Visalia Rawhide at Lake Elsinore.  I never been there.   Did you know that Tom and his cousin Kevin O’Malley own the team?   Tom’s grandfather was the legendary Walter O’Malley,

Check it out!  Don’t miss the big one!   The price is very reasonable, more so if you are a member.

9/11, Southern Cal Fires updates, Andre Ethier, Giant vs. Dodgers!

On this day 9/11, I want to give a big thanks to all firemen in this great country! to the police department, to the ones that were and are in the military, and to the many people that do volunteer work.    Thank you!!!  

Is hard to believe that this happened 8 years ago.  

 

This morning I heard that the fires here in Southern California were 70% contained.  that is great news!   Our firemen  and all the ones that came down here have done an excellent job.   I am glad I got to tell that to a few firemen the other night as I was coming out of Dodger Stadium (there was a small fire outside the stadium).  Their response was “Thank you Ma’m”  “Did the Dodgers win?”  They did win that night!.  

Driving on the Foothill freeway you can still see some smoke from the lingering fires.  We are so due for rain here.

I went to Virginia’s blog  and saw her final list of the N.L. West Cuties!  It reminded me of this photo of Andre.  What do you think Ethierholics?

Hiroki Kuroda is on the mound tonight in San Francisco!  He faces Matt Cain.  

Good luck Kuroda-san!!  

Let’s Go Dodgers! Let’s Go!!

 I got a question:   Why do pitchers shag baseballs in the outfield?   I am asking because last week Kershaw hurt his right shoulder during BP going after he hit the scoreboard.   He had to skip his turn and is still up in the air for his next start.   What is the point of them shagging baseballs in the outfield?  Thanks
