Dodgers Golden Anniversary Starts At The Rose Parade

In 2008 the Dodgers will be celebrating their Golden Anniversary in Los Angeles. The big 5-0 in LA.

They will open the year with a Rose Parade float featuring Dodger past and present greats. Furthermore, it includes 15 very dedicated Dodger employees. They represent a combined 225 year of Dodger service.
In honor of those unsung Dodger employees please be sure to cheer loudly for them if your in Pasadena for the parade. Heck, cheer loudly if your watching on the tube. They are:
  • Ray Alvarado of Arcadia , usher captain, 11 years of service
  • Cheryl Collins of Burbank, guest relations, 7 years of service
  • Diana Darr of Phillips Ranch, usher captain, 16 years of service
  • Earl Davidson of Canyon Country, usher captain, 15 years of service
  • Eddie Gonzalez of El Monte , assistant manager, 44 years of service
  • Raul Gutierrez of Santa Monica , security and assistant manager, 9 years of service
  • Sara Guzman of Los Angeles , usher captain, 13 years of service
  • Anthony Lopez of Whittier, usher captain, 29 years of service
  • Richard Montano of Pico Rivera , security lead, 26 years of service
  • Raul Rodriguez of Santa Monica , assistant manager, 19 years of service
  • Jim Terminal of West Covina , usher captain, 19 years of service

  • John Northcott of Pasadena , security, 2 years of service

O-Town?

It looks like Baltimore may be leaving their dilapidated Spring Training home in Ft. Lauderdale for Vero Beach in 2009.
A team source confirmed yesterday that the Orioles have been in serious negotiations with Indian River County about the Dodgertown facility, though a binding agreement hasn't been reached.
