My 2017 Dodgers FanFest Recap - Photos and Links

I had thought the day would be cold and windy.  Instead, a record crowd of nearly 30,000 fans experienced the FanFest in the best possible way.  It was bright and shiny, and hardly a gust of shivering cold was felt.  It proved to be a perfect Southern California day, and an fantastic segue to the upcoming Baseball season.

I was unable, unfortunately, to secure any autographs from the sessions sold online.  I tried, but all of the sessions I wanted sold out quickly.  Thankfully, the Interactive History at the Pop-Up Museum hosted by Maury Wills was open.  So I attended that VIP Experience, and plan on writing a separate post of the event. Stay tuned for that.  (UPDATE: Here is a link to my post on the museum tour.)

Before I show you all of my pics from FanFest, I thought I would provide links to some other sites that include some great photos, videos and recaps from the afternoon.  Check them out below:

This past Saturday was the Dodgers FanFest, and one of the special announcements made that afternoon was the naming of Corey Seager, the NL's "Rookie of the Year", as the cover-spokesman for RBI Baseball 2017.  Check out a screengrab from the presentation made on stage above.  You can watch it here.

BTW, I have a bunch pics I took at the FanFest and will be sharing them soon.  Below are more links to check out:
