When I arrived at the stadium, I noticed that the Dodgers opened the parking lots early, which seemed to be a good thing. Many people got to the stadium early, and I think it helped, at least it did on the Loge level, where they opened the gates at 5:20. My wife and I separated, and she said it was chaotic up on the Reserve level. My final destination was the Right Field Pavilion and that line moved very quickly.
Before the game started the Dodgers honored Vin Scully, who was on the field with his grandchildren, with a beautiful video tribute.Then Vinny came to the mound to throw out the ceremonial first pitch to Don Mattingly. When he got to the mound he did a wind up like Sandy Koufax, but he didn't throw the ball. He did however walk the ball to one of his grandchildren who then passed the ball down the line to the next grandchild and so on until it got to Don Mattingly.It was a great moment. Then one of Vin's grandaughters, Mackenzie Luderer, sang the Nation Anthem. As far as the game, the punchless Dodgers lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 2-0.
I love this bobblehead. I think it might be my new favorite.
I'm really happy this was the last bobblehead of the year. Getting to the stadium super early and dealing with all the people at Dodger Stadium is a lot of work and very stressful. Doing it ten times was too much. I hope the Dodgers can reduce the bobblehead number next season.
you wouldn't happen to have an extra?ReplyDelete
Maybe the bobble heads number should be deducted, but it does exactly as it was set out to do: have people purchase Dodgers ticket. I think this year was a bit much, but I'd still welcome the another season with 10 bobble heads. I said it before in the other comment section, but I've enjoyed most of the bobble heads given out this year.ReplyDelete
This bobble head is definitely one of my favorite bobble heads (if not favorite.)
haha i bet you never thought you'd be wishing for LESS bobbleheads. I just got one on ebay for 45 bucks. Living in Brooklyn is a bitch.ReplyDelete

Tough loss, good bobble! Tagged right field as you in a photo on FB, haha.ReplyDelete
That's an awesome bobblehead!ReplyDelete
I posted a Scully & Gibson lot on ebay, if anyone is looking for the bobbleheads?ReplyDelete
I heard Stan Kasten say there's 9 new bobbleheads for next year.ReplyDelete
Did he say that? Oh lord.Delete
This was so much, the number of bobble heads and the amount of time used up at Dodger Stadium. If this was Baltimore/New York and there was a good Metro/Subway to the stadium, I would no doubt do it every bobble game. I did it this season because of the 50th anniversary. However, if next season they do 9 bobble heads, I'm going to pick and choose. I can't do this, that often, anymore. Dodger Stadium's parking is just too horrible. If they had tailgating, it would make it a lot easier for some, but even there I don't know what's around Dodger so.... maybe it's pointless.ReplyDelete
I know a lot of people who feel that way.Delete
Yeah, especially with College starting to really take up so much of my time.Delete
