When I arrived at Dodger Stadium I noticed a lot of people leaving with cases of bobbleheads. I've seen people do this in the past, but this time there were more people doing it then usual. I should have taken pictures of some of the stacks of tickets people had. I saw one guy with a couple hundred! Not sure how many of those people stayed, but the stadium looked pretty empty. Vin Scully announced 50,000+ but I don't think it was even close.
The one disappointing thing about the entire night was Koufax not being in attendance. In my heart I was hoping he would be at Dodger Stadium, but I knew it wasn't gonna happen. Maybe one of these days he'll surprise us all and throw out the first pitch.
On to the bobblehead. Koufax is my favorite athlete of all time, so this bobble has now become my favorite. Nothing too special here, but it sure does look like the great lefty.
Up next, Fernando Valenzuela on Tuesday, August 21.
