Maddux is official…and you might get to meet him
Greg Maddux is coming back to the Dodgers. The deal is done and we hope to see him here in an hour or two.
UPDATE: That reminds me, the ThinkCure auction is still going on this week and it just so happens that I spend about an hour of each day in the Dodger clubhouse, as would the fan who purchases the package to go Inside the Dodgers.
So, while I can’t make any promises that you’ll definitely meet the newest Dodger, Greg Maddux, it’s always possible that him, Manny or any other future Hall of Famers will wind up in a conversation with me on that day and if you’re standing there, well…
The price is still just at $430 and as you know, there’s currently a battle with KABC’s Josh Suchon to see who can raise more money for cancer research.
I hate to point this out, but Inside the Dodgers is currently losing the battle…
Here are a few of the things I’ve mentioned that are part of my typical day, in addition to the interaction with numerous players on the team:
- Meeting Joe Torre and taking part in his pregame media session
- Standing on the field at Dodger Stadium for the National Anthem
- A private tour of the stadium, including areas that the public tour doesn’t go (underground batting cages, player’s lounge, Dodger offices, press box, broadcast booths, DodgerVision booth…remember, as an employee, my badge allows you to goes places where “the other Josh” can’t go!!) :)
- And of course, while I can’t make any 100 percent guarantees, I’m going to quietly mention that just about every day of my job requires me to interact with all of the Dodger broadcasters, including Vin Scully, Jaime Jarrin, Rick Monday, Charley Steiner, Fernando Valenzuela, Pepe Yniguez and Steve Lyons. You might take note that the package to visit Vin in his booth is now over $3,000 while this one is still under $500.
