Andre Ethier – the mailman of Dodgertown
I never got around to posting the lineup today, as we were busy with the news conference to announce 90090 as the official new zip code of Dodgertown. It’s pretty cool that we’re the first team ever to have that distinction. And we’ve gotta give a shout out to George Barajas, who has been sorting the mail here at Dodger Stadium for 23 years. He was part of the pregame ceremony, as were a lot of our friends at the post office. And of course, it all started with Jamie McCourt, who has been the driving force to get it done along with the help of Tommy Lasorda and many others behind the scenes.
But I guess it’s Andre Ethier who is the new Mailman of Dodgertown. He seems to deliver every day.
This team is really something else. Back-to-back nights, down by a run in the ninth, they’ve found a way to win and both times, it’s been Andre coming through in the clutch. And in case you didn’t watch the game, that’s his sixth walk-off in the last two seasons, more than anyone else in baseball.
Hope you all make it out tomorrow for the series finale or tune into ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball (or KABC). For those who missed Bleacher Beach last week, it should be a hot spot again manana.
