On May 7, the Dodgers will celebrate 60s night and hand out posters to the first 20,000 fans in attendance. Last year, they were themed like movie posters and this year, for the most part, they’ll celebrate various decades.
Earlier this morning, we did a photo shoot with our entire coaching staff, dressed like the Rat Pack, surrounding a pool table and the shots were awesome. Just having the coaches interact with one another in that sort of setting produced some great photos, and there will be a video feature, too, on the Dodgers Media Network at www.dodgers.com/dmn
Here’s a sneak peek from the shoot…
There are a lot more that Jon SooHoo took but I can tell you this much…the poster series is going to be very cool this year. Here are the dates:
May 7: Coaches poster (60s style)…get tickets for this game
June 4: Blake and Loney poster
July 9: Young Guns poster (Kershaw, Billingsley, Broxton, etc.)
July 23: 55 since ’55 poster featuring Vin Scully (now that’s a rarity)
Aug. 6: Kemp poster
Aug. 20: Ethier poster
Sept. 17: Manny poster
I’d imagine that a lot of kids will want to hang these posters on their walls (as will many adults) but as I think back to what was hanging on my wall as a kid, it’s somewhat ironic that it was also Don Mattingly poster (as well as Steve Sax and Tony Gwynn).
Here’s today’s lineup, with the game on big FOX:
