Blog Kiosk: 3/15/2011

Today, Dodger Stadium is holding a Tsunami Relief Event. Be sure to go by the stadium today to help out. The Dodgers and NBC LA hope to help raise money for the American Red Cross Japan earthquake and tsunami relief efforts. Dodger alumni Bobby Castillo, Kenny Landreaux, Rudy Law, Al Ferrara, Jimmy Campanis and Derrel Thomas and NBC LA on-air personalities will be on hand to take donations. Donors who give $20 or more will each receive two tickets to an upcoming Spring Training exhibition game at Dodger Stadium. From 5 AM to 7PM, TODAY!
  • Per Vin Scully is My Homeboy we learn that the Club Level hallways are filled with Dodger memorabilia. I had wondered if Gary Cypres, whose collection fills the LA Sports Museum, would have some of his Dodger stuff placed somewhere within Dodger Stadium. The answer is yes. BTW, a part of his collection also is located within the Staple Center. I've recently discovered that they change the exhibit at Staples from time to time, so if your at Staples from time to time I suggesting stopping by to see if it has changed.
