From Last to First. The Dodgers’ win coupled with the San Diego loss took over first place in the National League West for the first time in 2010! . After losing to Colorado on May 8, the Dodgers were in last place, 6.0 games behind the Padres, and have gone 22-7 since!
Kuroda-san pitched his best game against Carpenter but Kuo got the win and Jonathan Broxton the save. Final score: Dodgers 1, Cardinals 0.
Last Saturday my friends and I went to see Ely at an assigned signing at the At&T store in Culver City. We found Ely to be personable and adorable. Here are some pictures:
All about Ely
Ely Signed my scorebook on a scoresheet where he pitched! He looked at it and said “This is Cool!” He was impressed with Lorena who asked him who his favorite pitchers were growing up. I took a picture of Lore and Ely with her camera. Then after my pic with Ely, we were asked if we wanted one with both of us in the picture.
Thank you Ely! Thank you At&T and thank you KABC for the tickets! We sat in the Reserved aisle 7 on Sunday, courtesy of KABC.
Tonight’s game: Clayton Kershaw against Wainwright. This time I will be able to watch the whole game. Yesterday I was working with the Red Cross collecting pledges for the upcoming Annual Blood Drive for Saturday June 19.
This is an annual competition between the Angels and the Dodgers Booster Club. If you donate at this annual Blood drive, you get a voucher for your choice of team tickets, a commemorative t-shirt, a voucher for fish tacos from Wahoo, and a voucher for the Laugh Factory in Pasadena!
DONATE BLOOD! and GO DODGERS!
Dodgers Booster Club and the Annual Blood Drive
I went to the Dodgers Booster club last night. I try to attend their monthly meetings but sometimes it interferes with a game at the stadium.
A rep from The Red Cross was there to talk about the annual Blood drive in June where the Dodgers and Angels Booster Club team up to collect blood.
The Blood drive will be Saturday June 19. For those participating, you will get a t-shirt and a voucher for two tickets to your choice of team. Donate blood and Think Blue!
Unfortunately I will not participate as I will be in Boston for the Dodgers/Red Sox games but today we had our blood drive at work.
Another thing that went on at the Booster club meeting, in addition to the raffle of wonderful gifts like a Dodger gnome (I wanted that!), Dodger t-shirts and other Dodger merchandise was a chance to be on the field June 4th for the 1st Pitch. First name picked from the raffle got a choice of being the Pitcher, Catcher, Manager or Umpire. My raffle number was not called but it did get called to be one of the alternates, should someone not be able to make it.
Dodgers on The Road
In the meantime, my Bums are in Arizona for a three-game series. They won the first game. After a day off on Thursday, they will go to San Diego. I will be there for Saturday and Sunday’s game. I will be part of a group of 60. The Dodger Booster club also is having another group there of about 150. Lots and lots of Dodger fans make the short trip to San Diego, especially if the Dodgers play there on a weekend.
Saturday the Padres are giving out “Beat LA” t-shirts. Last year it was “Beat LA” towels. Look for Dodger fans to “alter” the wording.
And since Sue of http://rrrt.mlblogs.com/ asked to see a picture of me with my red wig, here it is. Cari is also in the pic. .
Here is also the picture I took of the KABC Dodger Talk announcement.
Update on our trip to San Diego
I just heard from Linda in San Diego that the Padres are not letting her use the word “Dodgers” on our group when is announced on the big screen. This is BS! She made the suggestion to call it “Vin Scully Fan club” I think is a great but I still do not like that we cannot use the word “Dodgers” as part of our group when they flash it on the big screen.
