From the Divisionarivalry.com where I purchased my Vin Scully t-shirt:
Divisional Rivalry Shirts have teamed up with “Dodger Fans
against Stadium Violence” to make some Tees available to purchase to show
we do NOT promote Stadium Violence. What happened on 3/31/2011 is
unacceptable. It’s ALL for the LOVE and SUPPORT of Baseball and your team
and should not go beyond that. The proceeds of these shirts will be donated
to help Bryan Stow and his family.
A women’s size is in the works.
Note: The reward to capture the rats (ratas con dos patas) that did this to Bryan Stow is up to 100,000.
I am little late posting.
Day two of the Dodgers Community Caravan for the Think Blue, act Green location was Santa Monica for “Heal the Bay” Day. Notice the Dodgers 2011 Caravan bus in the background.
In attendance were Shawn Green, Steve Garvey, Matt Kemp, Rafael Furcal, Jay Gibbons, Gabe Kapler, Tony Gwynn, Fernando Valenzuela, Sweet Lou Johnson, Darryl Thomas and Charlie Steiner.
Gabe Kapler and Sweet Lou Johnson were in our team. Gabe was the nicest guy and Sweet Lou, he is just always so sweet. Our team (Team5) trashed the competition by collecting 30 pounds of trash 🙂
Matt Kemp sure had an alot of followers. When I told him he looked thinner, he said “Yeah?, I’ve been working out”.
Tonny Gwynn Jr. said his dad is doing better recovering slowly from his bout with cancer.
Shawn Green is back! When asked about his book, he said it comes out in June.
We caught a little rain in Santa Monica but everyone’s spirit was high! I commend the Dodgers for this year caravan! The Think Blue and Act Green theme was a great idea.
On a sad note, we lost another Dodgers player. Gino Cimoli died last Saturday of kidney and heart complications. He was 81.
Gino played for both the Brooklyn Dodgers and the LA Dodgers. He was the first batter on the West Coast. He also scored the final run at Ebbets Field. Rest in peace Gino Cimoli. Obituary hereLA Times Obiturary
The number of living-Brooklyn Major Leaguers is down to 50.
That was painful getting swept by the Angels. But at least Sunday, I can see some players getting out of their slump like Manny, Raffy and Loney. Now when Kemp, Ethier and the beared one join in, watch out!
This picture was taken by Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo. Thanks Jon for a wonderful shot!
Weaver had to come and bat against Jerred. Jerred in turn came to face Jeff. Originally they were not supposed to face each other but with Monasterios failing to make it passed the 3rd, inning, in came in Jeff Weaver.
Now the Dodgers are on the road to face the Cincinnatti Reds for three and then is off to Boston! Don’t look ahead to the Red Sox boys so play well in Cinci. I’ll see you all in Boston! Go Dodgers!
Honduras faces Chile tomorrow morning at 4:30 AM. Buena suerte Hondurenos!
Three more days till my friends and I head to Boston! I talked to Manny Sunday and told him that I hope he plays well in Boston. He said “Si Dios quiere” “Se lo dejo todo a Dios” “God Willing” “I leave everything to God”
Here are our tickets and the Dodgers polo shirt that we got included in the Dodgerslife event.
