Yesterday November 29th, our baseball poet laureate turned 82!
We love you Vin! Happy birthday!!
Here is a Vin Scully short video that you will love from the California Sports Hall of Fame org: LOL. I love what Vin tells Tommy at the end!
Is too bad that this year we will not have the Christmas event for Dodgers season ticket holders. Last year, my friend LTD23, Erik and I had a ball at Dodger Stadium. An extra bonus was that Vin Scully showed up. Here is a pic I took last year!
It was an overcast day but we had a wonderful time!
After Erik and I yelled our customary greeting to Vin with “Vin Scully, we love you!” Vin looked at us and smiled. He talked about how the stadium is like a person with open arms, about the sky with some clouds but that us fans were brighten up the day :-). At the end he took notice of this little girl in the front with wings on telling her and other kids “you better watch out, you better not cry, Santa is coming to town….” Afterwards Tommy Claus waddled to that area. It was a great event for both kids and adults.
Here I am at the pitcher’s mound while the line to visit Tommy Claus was getting longer. Meanwhile at the batter’s box, they are taking pictures of fans and putting the message “Season Greatings from <insert name>”
Yes, Vin, it was a day filled with clouds, but YOU brighten the day by being there! May you continue to enjoy broadcasting games and brightening our days!
Here is Vin throwing out the first pitch at Fenway Park. That was the last time the Dodgers were at Fenway! I hope Vin does goes again next year!
What have I been up to lately? Well for me, is the busiest time at work from November till February so I am thankful that it is during the baseball off-season. I have also been in a reading binge. My last three books? Well, one had zombies, and the last two? Vampires and werewolves.
