55 since ’55 Poster Night Featuring Vin Scully!

Two shutout by Dodger pitchers in the last two nights!  and tonight is the 55 since ’55 Poster Night featuring Vin Scully!   I am very excited about getting this poster and about the festivities tonight! 

Here is what is in stored as reported in the Daily News at  http://www.dailynews.com/news/ci_15585735

The first 20,000 fans entering Dodger Stadium will receive a poster featuring the team’s celebration and a picture of a young Vin Scully and the words of his call of the final out. Scully will also utter his familiar, “It’s time for Dodger baseball,” live from the broadcast booth to the crowd, a role usually filled by a celebrity or child.

Don Newcombe, who won a team-high 20 games for the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers, will throw out a ceremonial first pitch, with a home plate from Ebbets Field, the Dodgers’ home from 1913-57, used for the ceremony.

In another nod to the past, organ music performed by Nancy Bea Hefley will be played almost exclusively for the entire game, according to Josh Rawitch, the team’s vice president of communications.

Ralph Mauriello, a Brooklyn-born pitcher on the 1958 Dodgers, will sing the national anthem and “God Bless America.”

Fans sitting in the My Town section will receive Dodgertown Brooklyn T- shirts, with the “55 after 55” patch the Dodgers have worn on their uniforms this season, and eat from an all-you-can-eat menu including Polish sausage sandwiches and soft pretzels.

the matchup:  Santana against Padilla.  Don’t you love that 50’s miles an hour curveball that Padilla throws!   You can hear the stadium crowds when he throws it. 

Let’s Go Dodgers!

The 55 since ’55 also reminded me of this wonderful post from Mike:

    It was a beautiful night although we lost the game. There was a fire in the Ravine. My friend Lore took some beautiful shots of the helicopters dropping water there.
    I’ll post a picture of the 55 since 55 poster. I think is a beautiful poster of a picture of the Brooklyn Dodgers winning the W.S. and a pic of Vin Scully in the middle with the words “Ladies and Gentlemen, the Brooklyn Dodgers are the Champtions of the World”

    I went to sleep early last night and missed the game. When I woke up this morning and found out how we lost, giving up all those walks in the eight inning, I was glad I was asleep. Sound like it was a great night for Dodger history last night. I saw a picture of the ’55 since ’55 Poster. It looks pretty cool, I might try to buy one. There are plenty available on Ebay. While we are on the subject of Dodger history check this out: http://brooklyn.ny1.com/content/top_sto … yn–though. I think you find this interesting. Joe and I are going to see the exhibit together.

    Wow! What a great opportunity to go to the exhibit! I love that the local High School kids is helping with the exhibit. Thanks for sharing this! Let me see if I can send you a 55 since 55 poster Will

    Yes Peter, it has been a tough week but both the Mets and the Dodgers are not hitting right now but we won Sunday 1-0 and took the series!
    On to the Padres starting Tuesday! Hope the Dodgers can continue their dominance of the NL West like they did in the first half of the season. Good luck with your Phillies.
