Before I head back to CamelbackRanch this weekend, I wanted to post more pictures from my first trip so here they are:
The seven of us with Manny Mota. Too bad the kid taking the picture did not get us all in the picture. Good thing Rosie had another picture.
Sneaking in with Tommy Lasorda. Tommy had signed a ball for me back in 2010 but the ink was getting lighter (no, I did not originally use a blue pen) so he signed it again. He also signed my Mark Langill book. He started looking at the pictures in the book commenting about the rookies of the year on the opposite page where he signed. Thanks Tommy! Love you!
Everyone stopped to watch Kershaw pitch in the intersquad game.
Kershaw had a good outing.
It was time for us to head out but before that we spotted Pepe Yniguez with Bill DeLury. Mr. DeLury has been with the Dodgers since 1950, mostly as Traveling Secretary. He started with the Dodgers as a 17-year- old office boy. Evan of Opinion of Kingman’s Performance did a wonderful job in interviewing Mr. DeLury. Here is the link http://opinionofkingmansperformance.blogspot.com/2011/06/second-longest-tenured-dodger-employee.html
Lorena with Pepe Yniguez. Pepe has been broadcasting Dodger games en Espanol since 1999.
Pepe also teams up with Manny Mota calling some games on TV on Time Warner cable channel 858
Javy Guerra got a kick of Rosie bringing the Rookie Hazing picture of Javy dressed as a Taco.
Javy when he saw me that I sporting my Javy batting practice jersey, he turned me around to show another player and said “See? she is my number ONE fan!” 🙂
I was playing photographer. Here is Priscy with Javy
Here is Amanda with Javy
Here is Tony Jackson, Beat Writer for ESPN Los Angeles. I like his long hair.
Taking a well deserved rest before we go inside Margaritaville
After food and drinks we headed next door to Saddle Ranch for some tequila shots and to ride the mechanical bull
The bull kicks Rene
Priscy is next
She gets knocked out but she gets back on the bull
She is having a bull, I mean a ball lol
Nice going Desiree! Even falling, you fall with grace.
Time to head back to LA. I am going going back to Cali Cali…..
Next Trip: Leaving Thursday night with Lorena and her niece Elisa. Lorena will be driving. They will drive back to Cali. I on the other hand need to head to NH to work there the following week so I will miss Sunday’s game as my flight leaves at noon. I can’t wait for Thursday night!
