He has also broadcasted many events for Fox Sports International including the 1997-2005 World Series. He has also broadcasted the 1997 MLB All Star Game and the Caribeean Series. In addition, from 1993-1995 he also served as the Spanish radio broadcaster for the Los Angeles Raiders.
Recently Pepe Yñiguez was telecasting Dodger games in Spanish along with Manny Mota on cable. Because of the increase in Spanish telecasts this year, Jaime Jarrin’s son, Jorge will be covering those games with Manny Mota.
Yñiguez will continue to broadcast games on the radio KTNQ with Hall of Famer Jaime Jarrin and commentator Fernando Valenzuela.
Pepe is very knowledgeable in the game of baseball. In Pepe’s voice you can hear the passion that he has for the game. His golden voice captures the audience. Recently during Spring Training, my friend Lorena and I spent some time talking baseball with Pepe. As is often the case when I get together with Terry Cannon of the Baseball Reliquary & Steve Seemayer, we lost track of time talking our favorite subjects: Baseball & The Dodgers.
Que tengas un bonito dia Pepe. Que tengas una gran temporada. Que pronto se te conceda transmitir un no-hitter y que tambien Los Dodgers ganen pronto una Serie Mundial para que te des el gusto de transmitir esos partidasos. Compartes tu cumpleanos con Cy Young.
May you have a beautiful day Pepe. May you have a great season. May you soon get a chance to transmit a no-hitter and also may the Dodgers soon win a World Series so that you would have the pleasure of transmitting such great games. You share a birthday with Cy Young

Originally James Loney was supposed to be part of the Caravan but he was a late scratch.
The Dodgers that attended on Wednesday were: Matt Kemp, Fernando Valenzuela, James McDonalds, Ramon Troncoso, Jim Campanis and Steve Yeager and Hall of Famer Jaime Jarrin, the voice of the Dodgers in Spanish!.
It was great to meet up with my friends Erik, Lorena and her niece Elisa.
Matt Kemp is adorable!
Guess who crashed the party at Roscoes Chicken and Wafles?
That is Barry Bond! My friend Lore was able to take this picture. Someone was saying that while we were waiting to get in that Lady Gaga was inside Roscoes.
Here is Lore with Matt Kemp. I love this picture!
My complain about Roscoes Chicken and Wafles was that once the fans finished eating they were waiting for the players to come around. It was taking a little longer but the waiters/waitresses were telling them they needed the tables! That was not right! They did not tell us anything but just in case we ordered a slice of sweet potatoe pie that was delicious
Meet Jon Soo Hoo, the Dodgers great photographer!
The boys are playing games at Best Buys. Matt Kemp said to us: “Hey you guys are here too “. He also greeted us at Olvera Street.
the 2010 Dodgers Caravan bus. :
At the Plaza of Olvera Street in Downtown L.A. The lines were huge when we got there but we had already talked to the guys at Roscoes so it was OK with us. We justed wanted to be there to support our Boys in Blue!
From Left to right, Jim Campanis, James McDonals, Ramon Troncoso (Tron), Matt Kemp, Steve Yeager, Jaime Jarrin and Fernando.
Ran into Josh Rawitch there! When I yelled his name he came over and gave me a hug. I suggested Philippes for next year’s luncheon. He said “that is a good idea, Emma.”
We watched all the boys sign and took more pictures. Ran into Pat,Jo, Roberto, Jack and other Dodger fans there.
Afterwards we went to El Paseo for dinner. Pat, Jo and a friend of them came in later and had the table next to us. Since Pat had told me at Olvera Street that it was her birthday, I called the trio that was singing there and had them sing “Las Mananitas” to her. Las Mananitas is the tipical song sang on your birthday, right after singing it they went into the Happy Birthday song.
After dinner, Erik and I walked Lore and her niece Elisa to their car. Mine was across the street but both Erik and I were craving a cup of coffee so we walked across to Philippe’s. Philippes has been around for 102 years! http://www.philippes.com/ The coffee tasted so good! and the price, can you believe it costs 10 cents !
I had a wonderful time at the Dodgers Caravan and I put a post in the ITD blog to let Josh Rawich know. Everyone from the current to the past Dodger players in attendance to Jaime Jarrin to the Dodger workers that were there helping the event were wonderful. They had a long day since their day started with a trip in the morning to the Children’s hospital and it did not end until very late at night at Olvera Street. You could see the fatigue on some of their faces from the long day but they were being troopers still smiling. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL !!!!!!
A big THANK YOU also to my friends Erik, LTD23(Lore) and Elisa! I miss you all during the offeseason so it was great seeing you again! This is the third year we do this! Let’s do it again next year!
I owe a few fans pictures so I was looking at my old camera and found some pictures that I wanted to share
First of all, here are my nieces Kirsten and Krystal. I took them to the Kids corral where kids and adults too might get autographs if the kids ask nicely. It was a hot day in the middle of the summer.
I love you girls!
I was driving to work when I spotted this bus so I chased it down until I could take a picture. I have another picture that I wa closer but I like this one where you can see a little of a mountain in the background. It startled me that I got too close.. i
From the Viva Los Dodgers festival. “ESTA ES MI CIUDAD” means “THIS IS MY TOWN”, the theme for 2009.
This is Dee. Check out her Vin Scully tatoo! It was done by Trublue, a tatoo parlor owned by a die hard Dodger fan.
