Getting ahead of ourselves…
While still focusing on tonight’s game, I wanted to make sure you knew about two things tomorrow.
First, a reminder that it’s now a day game (12:40 p.m. start), as FOX picked it up. Even though your tickets and most printed material says 7:10 p.m., tomorrow is a day game, and it’s actually the annual Photo Day, so you can come out between 11 and 11:50 and take photos of your favorite players.
And to make it an entire Dodger Day, you should make plans to stop by tomorrow night at the Pacific Design Center (8687 Melrose), where we’ll be having a “blue carpet” premiere of Bluetopia, the movie that was shot last year about the team and its fans. While the seating is not open to the public due to very limited number of seats, you can come out and watch the goings on like other movie premieres and get glimpses of your favorite players and personalities as they walk the carpet. Among the guys who have told us they plan to come are James Loney, Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw, Chad Billingsley, Ned Colletti, Maury Wills, Jaime Jarrin, Rick Monday, Charley Steiner, and many others.
And, since I’m sure you’ll all want to see the movie, you should know that DVD sales start on April 21 and you can preorder now on Amazon.
UPDATE 2: Doug Mientkiwicz is going to have to have surgery on his shoulder on Monday and is going to be out for a while. Blake DeWitt will join the big league club tonight.
