Thinking Blue for Upcoming Dodger Homestand August 17-22.

Billingsley will close off the four game series with Atlanta.   How odd that the fourth game is on a Monday and that the game will be played at the regular time of 7:10 ET time.    By the time the Dodgers get back it will early Tuesday morning.  


Tuesday it will be Matt Kemp’s bobblehead night. with the Colorado Rockies in town.   


Is Lorena’s birthday!

Andre-Food-Serving-2.jpgAndre Ethier will visit the Union rescue Mission from 11:30 am – 1 pm to serve food and Dodger Dogs to the homeless.  Dodger partner Farmer John’s tailgate truck will provide 500 Dodger Dogs for the people that th mission serves on a daily basis.  This will be Ethier’s third visit to the mission.  

Taking public transportation thru downtown LA, I have noticed the increase in homeless people.   I am glad that Andre, the Dodgers and Farmer John are part of this.



Pro Football Hall of Famer and Los Angeles native Warren Moon will throw out a ceremonial first pitch.



Ryan Theriot will take kids on a back-to-school shopping spree at the Staples store in El Monte from 11:20 am – 100 pm courtesy of the Dodgers Dream Foundation and Staples.    


With the Reds in town, Friday is 90’s night.   The first 20,000 fans will receive Andre Ethier posters in honor of the 90’s

Friday is the annual Shirts off Their Backs auction.  All of the Dodgerss’ game-worn, autographed jerseys from the team’s victory over the Yankees on Saturday, June 26 will be auctioned off on the club level outside of the Vin Scully press box from 5:10 – 8:45 p.m. Goodie baskets made by Dodger wives that include their husband’s favorite things will also be up for bid.  I’ve bid on a couple of baskets in the past.   Is always very interesting what is included in the baskets.   One of the most elaborate baskets was Grady Little that included a ride on his motorcycle.   Broxton has included a nice handmade wooden box.   Inside the baskets you can find candy, a glove, batting gloves, shirts, movies, certificates, popcorn, spikes, a bat, etc.    


The first “Bark in the Park at Dodger Stadium” will take place on Saturday presented by Dick Van Patten’s Natural Balance Pet Foods, Inc.    Fans that purchase an AYCE (All You Can Eat) ticket in the right field pavillion for $25 per human can bring their dog.  I’ve never been to one of these events at other parks but why are the Dogers charging $25 per dog?    


Sunday is the usual Viva Los Dodgers Sunday.     

God willing, I’ll try to make it to all the games.   Go Blue!

    Hey Emma!
    Too bad the BP coughed up the lead (again). This is getting depressing. But hey, did you hear the news? The Dodgers actually signed Zach Lee, our #1 draft pick from 2010. You know, the one that everyone (myself included) thought was unsignable and the Dodgers only drafted an unsignable player to avoid having to pay a large signing bonus. I’ll take my piece of humble pie ala mode, thank you very much…

    And I have no idea why the Dodgers are charging $25 per dog. Does that mean that your dog will be able to eat AYCE hot dogs too???

    Hey CP!
    I went inside a store and the Dodgers were winning, I come out and they had lost the game. Sigh.. Very surprised with the Zach Lee signing. I’ll join you with that pie 🙂
    I don’t have a dog but I don’t think they should charge $25 for the pooch. A couple going with their dog got to spent $75! that is too much.

    Emma ~ Sounds like a lot of nice events are happening at Dodgers Stadium this week. The auction sounds very interesting, I hope you get something good. The “Bark in the Park” reminds me of a friend of mine who use take her toy poodle to Met games at Shea Stadium for free.

    Anyway these ninth inning losses are driving me crazy, I can’t watch them anymore. I hope they play better on this home stand.

    Oh, I’ve stopped trying to figure the McCourts and their ways of squeezing even more $ out of loyal fans. That’s why I think Fido should be able to eat all the hot dogs he wants to!

    I’ll put my name on one or two baskets.
    You and me both, we hope our boys play better at home.
    I won the Joe Beimel basket one year. He had a Brooklyn hat, popcorn, nuts, a music gift card, Dodger Adult tshirt and a kid shirt and a video of the show “the office”. I forget what else was there.
    I think it would be too messy there with dogs. I don’t know how they do that at other parks. I rather not do something like that but I have not had a dog for a long time.

    First of all, Happy Birthday to Lorena! Secondly, tomorrow sounds like fun, though it is a serious cause to be involved with Good for Andre for taking the lead on this.

    Plus, it’s good to see Theriot jumping into the community service arena in L.A.! He’s got his hands full with the kids at Staples!

    And, you’ll make it Emma!

    I showed Lorena that you wished her a Happy Bday! She laughed! She did not know I had put it as the week’s events LOL.
    I loive it when the boys contribute in the community!
    God willing, I’ll make t the whole homestand. We also have a get together by the park ouside the ballpark with Top Deck friends this weekend. It should be fun. I think I will bring a surprise salad. A friend who is a very good cook is giving me the recipe.

    Yes Jeff. the Dodgers look spent but still supporting my boys in Blue!
    So you are a Leo too! happy belated kid! Yep! I won’t abandon my boys blue!
