I wish I had a picture for this story:
Here is my story that aired last night on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:
I was on a cruise was assigned a table. I had that table for the entire cruise with others who join you. There was an elderly man with his daughter and her two kids who were at my table too. I always try to make kids feel good and pas along some wisdom, which I did in this case too.
When the cruise was over I got a call from the elderly gentleman and he asked me for my address. I asked him why and he told me that he raised Arabian horses.
“I want to send you a horse,” he told me.
At that time I was living in an apartment, so what was I going to do with a horse? I told him to send it to my farm in Pennsylvania (although I didn’t have a farm).
Up pulls a trailer to Vince Piazza’s house in Pennsylvania with a beautiful Arabian horse. Vince thought it was beautiful and named it Dodger.
Mike Piazza used to ride the horse all the time as a kid.
