Another dose of reality…

We just got back from a hospital visit with J.D. Drew and Nomar Garciaparra, as they spent time with some kids in the pediatric ward at White Memorial Medical Center. J.D. had actually visited the same hospital last year when he first signed with the team and while he couldn’t return to the Dodgers’ Pediatric Playroom because it’s being retro-fitted, it was nice to see that a few of the people working at the hospital remembered him from his last visit.

On this, the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, visits like this certainly give us all a reason to think about the lives of others less fortunate, though we shouldn’t really need these sorts of reminders to do so. Still, I think everyone that took part in the hospital visit – players, front office and media – got a healthy dose of reality again today and the kids got a few famous visitors to brighten their day.
