I knew that the Annual SABR Day is scheduled for January 26, 2013. Now I am finding out that the Dodgers will have their first Winter FanFest on the same Saturday!
My first reaction was “Awe shucks!” but then I started thinking “Why not have SABR at Dodger Stadium?” It would be a great opportunity to pass the word around and see if more people want to sign up to be a member of SABR.
I was told at the last meeting that the location had not been determined. Last year it was at the LA Habra library. It was a great event with Del Crandall in attendance and High School coach Eddie Alvarez. Daryl Gribsby talked about his book “Celebrating Ourserves: African-Americans and the Promise of Baseball”.
Last year the Dodgers were having Open House at Dodger Stadium. I went a day before so I would not miss SABR Day. Last year I said the same thing “Why not have SABR DAY at Dodger Stadium.
From the SABR website at http://sabr.org, this is what i says:
SABR Day is an annual event that brings together SABR members and friends on the same day, regardless of where they live. The fourth annual SABR Day will be held on January 26, 2013. Check back on this page soon as we update our calendar with SABR Day events in your area!
Regional SABR meetings are open to all baseball fans — though we encourage you to join SABR if you like what you find — and are usually free to attend. Guest speakers often include current and former baseball players, managers, umpires, executives, scouts, writers and authors.
This will be the Dodgers first Fanrfest in the Winter. In the past two years we had events where we can volunteer along the players at places like cleanup the ocean and the La River and donating time at the La Food Bank.
I hope that they will still have events like these in addition to the FanFest. Look for more information to the Dodgers FanFest at http://dodgers.com
Update: Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin will also be at the FanFest!! Also lots of food trucks.
I know everyone will have the list but I like to have it handy here so I know where to find it.
The Dodgers Promotional Schedule for 2013 has been released! I am loving the Old Timers Game! and that Jaime Jarrin will finally get a bobblehead! I love the t-shirt last year too with his iconic homerun saying “La Pelota se va se va y despidala con un beso” “The ball is going going and you can kiss it goodbye!”
Sandy koufax & Vin Scully will get another bobblehead! I just hope this time Sandy Koufax will acknowledge the fans at least from the Vin Scully Press Box if not the field throwing out the first pitch.
I see we will also get a Magic Johnson bobblehead and a t-shirt.

Sunday I was planning on going to the San Clemente Seafest but after seeing that there was going to be an MLB Postseason quadruple header on TV, I decided to stay home. I am glad I did stay home to watch most of the four game series. Yeah, I vegetated but in between I did get some cooking done.. I’ll take the train ride to San Clemente another weekend.
Today there is another quadruple header! I am at work but I will work with my headphones on while I listen to some of the local announcers on MLB At Bat. I tend to switch between the home and away team announcers. I have found them a little too homers. That is something that you don’t find with Vin Scully, Jaime Jarrin and Pepe Yniguez.
When I find myself on the road and my MLB At Bat fails me at the stadium, I turn to my radio and listen to the local announcers. In addition to enjoying the game, I like to listen to the local commercials to see who their local sponsors are. I found the milk commercials at Minnesota …wholesome . By the way, avocados from Mexico commercials in the MLB Postseason? Cool! It did make me want some avocado . Talking about avocados, last weekend was the Avocado festival in Carpinteria, CA.
this reminds me of the avocado trees back home in Honduras. It also reminded me of Duke Snider who had an avocado farm in Fallbrook, CA.
The quadruple header for today:
St Louis at WAS 10 AM PT (1 PM ET) on MLBNetwork. Carpenter against Edwin Jackson.
SF at CIN 1 PM PT (4 PM ET) on TBS Barry Zito against Mike Leake
BAL at NY 4:30 PM PT (7:30 PM ET) on TBS on ESPN radio Miguel Gonzalez against Kuroda-san.
DET at OAK 6:30 PM PT (9:30 PM ET) on TNT Mike Scherzer against AJ Griffin
Ex-Dodgers in the postseason: Kuroda-san, Jonathan Broxton, Guilleromo Mota, Edwin Jackson, Derek Lowe, Jayson Werth, Russell Martin, Jim Thome, Jim Johnson, Xavier Paul, Dioner Navarro and David Ross (Braves)

p.s. Jaime Jarrin twitted this “commendable drive of Clayton Kershaw to intensify the collection of funds to help kids in Zambia. He will have a golf tournament on November 12th in Los Angeles.
I like the quotes once you publish your post here at the MLB Blogs. This is from today:

Before I post some pictures from the last game at Dodger Stadium. I want to post this one from the night before. This is Rachel and Lorena. Rachel is four years old.
Rachel asked me “What are you doing?” I showed her my book and she says “Oh! you are keeping score!” Smart girl!
For the last game at Dodger Stadium, my friends Rosie, Iilda, Lorena and I splurged and sat in the dugout seats.
The only thing is that we sat behind the visiting dugout but that gave us also a nice view

Taking a picture of a Relay for Life piggy bank with Cochito Cruz in the background. My boss who is one of the leaders for the Relay for Life in Simi Valley puts one by the cafeteria cashier box so employees can donate their change to the cause.
Here is Cochito on first
A friend emailed me this picture telling me “those don’t look like Top Deck seats!’
Good night Vin Scully! We Love you!
A friend of mine sent me a PM saying “Emma I was worry about you after the Dodgers got eliminated but not after googleing ”Emma Dodger blue” and saw Crzblue” LOL.
I divided the video recording into
three four videos so here are the final three.
This one is 5.59 minutes
This one is 2:30 minutes. This is the one where Pensando Azul asks Vinny “what ring is he wearing”. He was wearing 1988 and he said it has been a long time.
And this is the last one. Here is where I asked Vinny if he is going to New York. It is more like I blurted it out.
Vin is right (he is always right) that the Dodgers playing in New York the night before and then the following night in San Diego is …well a little rough. Why is the schedule that way where the Dodgers play Tuesday and Wednesday at Yankee Stadium (why only two games?) and then Thursday thru Sunday at San Diego. Why not a day off on Thursday. I do hope something is changed where Vin can make the game but I understand if he does not.
WE LOVE YOU VIN!!
Here is the first video I recorded of Vin Scully at the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium.
I did not realize until the second day that the first person that asked a question is my twitter friend Pensando Azul. Neither one of us knew the other one was going to be there.
Vin mentioned that he is a fan of Baseball Prospectus. Love the man!
Two more days till I head to Cincinnati
I was so looking forward to attending the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium. Vin Scully was the first speaker. I video taped Vin with my flip but I have not upload that one since that would take a little longer. What I did upload first was the short videos with Logan White. Apologies that I could not video tape the entire Logan White part. I had used most of the time left in the Flip for Vin Scully.
Here is the first of part of Logan White:
Here is the second part of Logan White video taped:
Thank you so much to everyone at Baseball Prospectus that put this event together at Dodger Stadium! Thank you to Joe Hamrahi, Vin Scully, Dan Evans, Logan White and Steve Garvey. I had a wonderful time!
Thank you Baseball Gods for Cochito Cruuuuuuuuuuz ! Dodger Stadium went crazy when Cruuuuuuuuuz sent the three run homerun deep into the Dodger bullpen. The chant started again “CRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZ” and an exuberant Cruz came out of the Dodger dugout to acknowledge the fans.
The night started with Andre Ethier hitting a two run homerun. After the game was over I was able to wish “good night” to Vin Scully who answered me back with a “Good Night”
The fireworks were extra special with the win and the music set to Mexican music. Lorena and I were singing along.
Saturday: Baseball Prospectus event with Vin Scully!
I am heading to the stadium for this special event!
Today September 15, is Honduras Independence! Felicidades la patria que me vio nacer! Yes, I was born in Honduras.
Dodgers lost to the Cardinals. It was another frustrating night at Dodger Stadium with the team lack of hitting.
The highlight of the game on Thursday: the Cool-A-Coo! It hit the spot and brought back so many memories back when I used to watch Fernando pitch, back when Scioscia was behind home plate, back when the team was known as “The Big Blue Wrecking Crew“
Another highlight last night: Hanging out with friends especially Lore and little Rachel
Here is Rachel again. She is a cutie. She and her sister Elizabeth and her parents are season ticket holders. I’ve been seeing since they were babies.
Jaime Jarrin’s Hollywood Star Anniversary.
On this day, September 14, 1998 – Jaime Jarrin received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
You can find the star on the north side of the 6300 block of Hollywood Boulevard. Happy anniversary sr. Jaime!
Feliz Dia de El Locutor
Hoy Septiember 14, es El Dia de El Locutor en Mexico. Today is Day of the Broadcaster in Mexico.
Felicidades a Jaime Jarrin, Pepe Yniguez y a Fernando Valenzuela! Ojala que celebren con una victoria de los Dodgers. Let’s hope you celebrate with a Dodger victory. Feliciadades muchachos!
Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium
Saturday I am looking forward to attending the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium. In addition to meeting many of Baseball Prospectus personalities, Vin Scully will also make a special appearance!
There will also be a question and answer session with industry guests including Los Angeles Dodgers Assistant GM, Amateur and International Scouting Logan White.
The private event is sold out so I am glad that I signed up!
So I was remembering reading about the time Hilda Chester colored her hair red to change the Dodgers luck. They went on to win that day.
Nothing new to report is just has been frustrating to lose to the Diamond Backs.
Only highlights of these last two games with the Diamond Backs have been:
Vin Scully on his special Bobblehead day.
and Jaime Jarrin signing a three year extension. Next year will be his 55th year with the team
Felicidades a nuestro maestro Jaime Jarrin!
Josh Beckett on the mound tonight. Can they break the snake spell?
Wake up Dodgers!
Is frustrating and exasperating being at the stadium night after night and seeing you lose when you can do better than that.
