Those were Joe Torre’s first words when he addressed the team yestserday and it certainly was an historic day yesterday, the first workout at Camelback Ranch – Glendale. Many of us in the front office were talking in an afternoon meeting about how cool it would be to have been at the first workout at Dodgertown in 1949 and we can only hope that 60 years from now, people look back on the history here like they do in Vero Beach.
I saw a comment from yesterday here about a Dylan Hernandez story and wondering why I didn’t respond to it. I’m not sure which article that was referring to, as Dylan writes every day, but please let me know what I can clarify for all of you…I’m happy to do so.
Speaking of Dylan and the LA Times, there’s a lengthy feature in today’s Travel section that really takes everything into account from the fan’s perspective. The best seats in the house, parking, hotels, etc.
Lots of position players are showing up early, as I just ran into Casey Blake and Juan Pierre on their way in the building. Juan’s a big NBA fan, so he was at yesterday’s Slam Dunk contest, as were Joe Torre, Rick Honeycutt, and Charley Steiner, among others. I even ran into Luis Gonzalez on the concourse and got to catch up with him. Still one of the nicest guys in all of baseball.
We’ll keep posting every day so check back early and often…
