I was born in Oceanside, California in 1945 and grew up playing Little League baseball following the Dodgers. Their move to Los Angeles from Brooklyn changed baseball as we knew it then to what it is now. Walt Alston as the manager, followed by the emotional Tommy Lasorda brings back great memories of me listening to the radio as the Dodgers and Giants fought for west coast bragging rights. Remember the early 50's when Roy Campanilla hit 42 homeruns in 1953 and Gil Hodges and Duke Snider hit 40 plus home runs and drove in 130 RBI's each. The good ole days with my dad taking me to a double header with Koufax and Drysdale pitching back to back. Maury Wills stealing 102 bases in 1962.That gifted infield of the 70's, consisting of Garvery, Lopes, Russell, and Cey. Steve Sax, Dusty Baker and Pedro Guerrero personal successes in the 1980's. Kirk Gibson in the 1988 World Series The 1990's with Eddie Murray, Mike Piazza, Raul Mondesi bringing us into the 21st century. Great memories of past years gone by, yet we have a new set of faces and names, a new owner, manager and staff that are committed to setting the Los Angeles Dodgers up for success once again.
