My last game at Dodger Stadium for 2012

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

Dodgers win!

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.

The Last Three Videos from the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium

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!!

Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium. Vin Scully Video One.

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  

 

Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium. Logan White Videos

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!

Cochito Cruuuuuuuz saves the day! Vin Scully at Baseball Prospectus event

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.

Feliz Dia de El Locutor. Jaime Jarrin’s Anniversary and I will see Vin Scully on Saturday

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

Thank you Rachel for my drawing!  I love it! 

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.

Highlights of Dodgers Diamond Backs series: Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin

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.

Why are the Diamond Backs dominating the Dodgers this year?

Why are the Diamond Backs dominating the Dodgers this year?

I don’t know the answer.   Is one of those baseball misteries.  The D’Backs came into Dodger Stadium with a six game losing streak.  But the other record they had going was six straight wins against the Dodgers.  Well, make that seven now.

Dodgers wasted a good outing by Clayton Kershaw.   They lost 2-0 on Vin Scully Day.   The only good thing about yesterday was honoring Vin Scully.  Vin was the highlight, the rainbow.

Dodgers have hit some slide with the Rockies and Diamond Backs.

they are now 4 1/2 games back.

Jaime Jarrin was saying on twitter that the Giants are probably singing “La Distancia entre los dos es cada dia mas grande”     which means the same as “The distance between us grows and grows”

C’mon Dodgers snap out of it!

tonight: Trevor Cahill  for the D’Backs against Aaron Harang.

Congratulations to Jaime Jarrin!   He will return next year for his 55th year with the Dodgers.  He has signed a three year contract!   Felicidades Maestro!

Stan Kasten Q&A with LA Times Bill Dwyre video. Vin Scully Day!

Last night I went to the Q&A with Stan Kasten moderated by Bill Dwyre.  I had tape recorded the whole event but my brother Vic erased it by mistake.  But here is a little video.   I should have been standing to record  it as I did not have a good view from where I was sitting.

 

Thank you Stan Kasten, LA Times, Bill Dwyre! Thank you Lorena for inviting me!
