LAFD Fire Station 11


I had lunch the other day with the guys from Fire Station 11 in Downtown Los Angeles.

I know fire fighters have red trucks and wear yellow suits when they are out on calls, but these guys bleed Dodger Blue.

It was an honor to be invited to lunch, and while many of them look up to ball players, it is they who are the real heroes in our society.  They put their lives on line for our safety, and none of us can do enough to show our appreciation for their service and sacrifice.

Here are some pictures from our lunch together:






Welcome to Cooperstown Whitey and Doug


85 nlcs lasorda herzog 3.JPGCongratulations to Whitey Herzog and Doug Harvey for being voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veteran’s Committee on Manager and Umpires.  Both Whitey and Doug are very deserving of this honor as both men had distinguished careers and represented themselves to the highest degree of class, dignity and character.  Both men loved the game very much and spent their lives giving back to the game that gave so much to them.

Congratulations Whitey and Doug.  I’ll see you in Cooperstown.
