Jackie Robinson Day at Dodger Stadium on April 15, 2019

Last night I got some last minute tickets to the Los Angeles Dodger’s 11th game of the season against the Reds. The stadium was celebrating Jackie Robionson Day! As a result the give away for the night was a custom white Dodger’s jersey with Robinson’s 42 emblazoned on it. So in addition to all the fans wearing 42, all the players on both the Dodgers and the Reds also wore their respective jersies, but with the number 42! It made the game a lot harder to follow and score, but it was a fantastic way to honor Robinson’s career. All I can say is that #​​42 had a particularly spectacular night on my score card.

I also had some pretty spectacular tickets for the game. I had tickets in the Lexus Dugout Club in Section 1DG, Row GG, Seat 8 which ostensibly meant that I was in row 6 immediately behind home plate. I’ve been in rows 2 and 4 in the same section before at Dodger’s games, but they still don’t rate as impressive as the below-field-level tickets I had for a Padre’s game right next to the dugout were if I put my arm straight out, my finger was literally touching the dirt on the field and my yelling as a fan was able to cause a spat between the home plate umpire and the visiting team’s coach!

    Scorecards! Can you share a pic of your scorecard? Even though it’s now over 2 years old—I found this post from your new index page. The Dodgers topic stuck out, because I’m a baseball fan. (And I love filling in scorecards.)

      Sorry Matt. I’m pretty sure I scored at least half of that game, but I can’t seem to find the copy of it. I do still have the give away shirt from that night though. I know I didn’t score it in my usual notebook which I didn’t have with me at the time. If it pops up one day, I’ll be sure to post it. I’m thinking I ought to post more of my sports scoring data to my website in general, but that’s a whole different ball of wax.
