Saturday Morning Blog: The Last Game at Candlestick

Here is my story from last night’s edition of Lasorda at His Best presented by Skechers:

It was the last day that baseball would be played at Candlestick Park.  The Giants asked me to recreate what I used to do when I was Manager.  I used to come out of the clubhouse, which was all the way down the line.  As I made that walk to the dugout all the fans would boo me, and when I would get to the mound I would take a bow and blow kisses to all the fans.

On this last day at Candlestick I recreated that walk, and did the same things I used to do when I managed.  But this time I stopped at home plate because they asked me to say a few words.

I talked about baseball, and I talked about the rivalry.  And then in front of 70,000 I said, “You know, I’ve got you people figured out.  You don’t hate me.  You actually hate yourselves because you love me!”
