Non-baseball post alert: I am really going to Los Angeles. God willing, if I’m alive in June; I am really going to see Dodger Stadium with my own two eyes.
For some reason, maybe because it was Valentines Day; my wife dug into things and ordered our flights to Los Angeles. Other than some trips to New Jersey to see her family, I haven’t been on vacation since like 2013 when we went to Las Vegas. When you have two young kids, you don’t go on vacation.
So yeah, this is monumental for me. To make things even better, my buddy who works for the Seattle Mariners is going to be in LA that week scouting the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. He might get to make my first trip to Dodger Stadium with me.
June 5th, 6th, and 7th, the Dodgers host the Washington Nationals. The 7th of June is a noon start at Chavez Ravine. The Redlegs come to town on Friday night the 9th. So maybe I can catch two of those games with no baseball stuff on a few of the days (Thursday will be key) to please my old lady.
Either way, I’ll have some great pics when I come back of everything in Blue Heaven.
