A great tradition continued this winter as the Dodgers hosted their 2013 Holiday Mall Tour throughout Southern California. Fans came out in droves to celebrate Dodger fandom, and to greet their favorite Dodger legends.
This past weekend the Dodger tour went to Arcadia, and Blue Heaven reader David was kind enough to share some photos from the event. Thank you, David! BTW, Dodger photographer Jon SooHoo was also there. Check out his pics at this link.
As you know, the weather was less than wonderful on Saturday, so Dodger fans had to brave the cold and rain. As David notes, that did not deter fans.
It was my first ever Dodger mall tour event. I didn't know what to expect so we got to the mall around 8am. There was probably 75 people in line already. It rained off and on the whole time we were there. Time didn't drag on because when your with Baseball fans there's a lot to talk about. The signing started around 11 and it took us 50 minutes to get to the front of the line. We got our autographs and and had some fun in the Dodger photo boothThat's what I call devotion. For an 11:00 AM signing fans started getting in line before 8:00 AM. Wow!
Below are some pics. As you can see, there was a ton of Blue. Click on any pic to embiggen.
Here's Fernando signing at the booth.
And here is what David and his son got signed.
BTW, David's day was not done.
Our next stop we went to Frank and Sons to get Maury Wills. That was great too. Wills was awesome and he spent about 10 minutes talking to my son JT.Class act, Wills is. Below is a pic with Maury Wills and David's son, JT. Thanks again, David!
