Weekend Autograph Opportunities: Corey Seager Tonight!

Here are this weekends autograph opportunities and events throughout the Southland. As always, be sure to check the Blue Heaven Calendar for other events (a link can always be found on the tab at the top of this page, just left of center), and always confirm with the establishment. Everything is subject to change.  Please email me with any tips about upcoming events in Southern California.  As the rest of the week progresses I'll update this post with other events (if there are any) as I become aware of them.  Also, I don't always list every event below, so be sure to check my Calendar.  I always try to favor free signing events over paying events.  Click on any pic to embiggen.


After this afternoons game Dodger phenom Corey Seager will head over to the Sports Authentics store at the Puente Hills Mall to sign autographs for fans. He is expected to be there from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM. This is also a pay for signature event -- from $129 to $159 each.

Blog Kiosk: 6/7/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

It's a little frustrating when your team pitches well, but loses the game nevertheless.

Last night the Dodgers lost a tough one as Brandon McCarthy and Max Scherzer dueled it out. Unfortunately, the Nationals pitcher was a bit better as the Dodgers offense continued their slump at the plate for the third straight game. I suppose the saving grace, though is that our pitchers appear to be locked in; especially McCarthy. Per Cary Osborne at Dodger Insider:
“It seems like every single time he gets out there he has control of the game,” Roberts said. “Like Scherzer, he had his mix working today — the breaking ball, the cutter, the two-seamer down below the zone, the four-seamer up. He left the change to Harper up that he hit the double on. But you take those (two) starts out and he’s as good as anyone in the league.”
The Dodgers fall to two games behind the Rockies in the NL West. The Photo above via Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers 2017. Go here to check out more pics by Jon from yesterdays game. Below are more links to check out:
  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1898 Brooklyn owner Charles Ebbets stepped in to be the teams manager for the remainder of the season. They would not fare very well. The Dodgers would finish in 10th place with a 54-91 record. In 1982 Steve Garvey played in his 1,000th consecutive game. He would receive a standing ovation from fans at Dodger Stadium. In 1995 Tommy Lasorda won his 1,500th game as a major league manager when his Dodgers defeated the Expos, 7-1.
