A Dodger St. Patrick's Day

Since the days of O'Malley, St. Patrick's Day has always had a special place in the hearts of Dodger nation. Games were always packed (even on a weekday), the team wore green and the entire community celebrated the day as if it were a national holiday.

I was fortunate to have experienced this event one Spring afternoon in 2007. I had failed to realize that my first Spring game while on vacation would be on the Irish holiday so I was ill-prepared for the festivities. Fortunately, I arrived very early, so I was able to secure a ticket. Soon, all of Dodgertown was packed. Green was everywhere.

Since I find myself reminiscing I thought I would post some of the pics I took that day. I had a whole bunch more, but they didn't turn out that well.
