When I was a tiny tot, I was turned on to baseball by my dad,which I have stuck with to this day. Hearing Vin Scully on the transistor radio, making the game come alive was all a nod to pop. My dad always had access to tickets, as you can see at a early age, I grabbed the camera and snapped the pictures of Sandy Koufax. Those were great days, great times, and I was so thrilled. Sandy doing his windup!!! WOW!
Well a lot of time has passed, and lots of letdowns. Every year the fan (me), believes this is the year, but nope. We will be better next year.
I have gone to this ballpark, the lovely Dodger Stadium, for so long that I thought I had seen it all, not jaded mind you.
But a couple of weeks ago I showed up early for the final Dodger/Yankee game, walked to my seats, and my body just lost it’s balance, never had great balance.
Bam! I fell to the right (that is the spot in the picture you see), and did something I never would have expected to do. I fractured my ribs, got to look like a total goof, and yes one more thing, I have now experienced Dodger Stadium first aid. Not bad!
I will live, as will my passion for baseball, not sure about my balance though …
