The day that Dodgers Pitchers and Catchers report is finally here! WOOHOO!!
Dodgers photographer and owner of the MLB blog http://dodgersphotog.mlblogs.com/ Jon SooHoo posted this picture from Camelback Ranch two years ago with the caption “What awaits the Dodgers at the end of the rainbow this season?” That applies even more now.
Here is a picture from 2004 P&C at Vero Beach. Greg Miller, Tom Martin, Hong-chih Kuo, and Kaz Isshi. Good luck in Seattle Kuo. We will miss you.
In addition to being P&C Day today is Marty Gras or Fat Tuesday. A day to feast before Lent starts. It is also called “Shrove Tuesday” or Pancake Day in the UK. Pancake day because it was a great way to use the foods that were given up for Lent – milk, butter, and eggs.
An English friend suggested I give up Baseball for Lent. My reaction: “WHAT! Are you kidding me!? “No Way” I suggested that he gives up Soccer. I am still working on what I am going to give up. In the meantime.
Dodger News: Dodgers bring back Steve Yeager as catching instructor! Welcome back Boomer!
