Mattingly Baseball Charities Launch Party tonight

If you’re a Dodger fan in New York and can find a way to get out from under the snow, head to Mickey Mantle’s tonight for the Mattingly Baseball Charities launch dinner.

Details can be found here and it seems many baseball legends will be in attendance.

Donnie’s charity was created to serve underprivileged youth by supporting programs which promote baseball and softball participation. Many of you may know that he has donated bats and other equipments to our most recent Dodgers Dreamfields and took part in the grand opening of the DDF Dreamfield at the L.A. Boys & Girls Club.

He’s a very community-minded person and having spoken with him several times in the past month, he cannot wait to get to Camelback Ranch. He’s actually heading to Arizona early to get settled in and will make a trip back to join the annual Dodger Caravan on Feb. 14.

Details on Caravan stops and the incredible lineup of players and former players who will be taking part should be coming out next week, so keep an eye on dodgers.com.

Woohoo! I cannot wait for Caravan Day! In a few minutes I will head to Dodger Stadium for Select A Seat. I know Deuce and dad will be there.

Wish the SABR Day on Saturday. in the LA area was at Dodger Stadium. The one in Boston is at Fenway and in several states they are having it at the team’s FanFest. I’ll be at Ervine on Saturday.

Oh and why not Caravan Day on a weekend. Also why not a FanFest. I’ll take another vacation day to go to Caravan Day. OK, got to get out of here, have coffeee and head to Dodger Stadium.

I’m all in support of charities, but I find something inherently wrong with publicizing first Torre’s now Matingly’s charitable efforts in New York City. We are Los Angeles and deserving of promotion for LA charities, unless of course Frank abuses his charitable efforts by paying some front office guy an outrageous sum of money that defeats any charitable intention in the first place.

So, F New York, and Boston for that matter!

Too bad that Jason Scmidt and Andrew Jones were not more like this guy.

Josh, have the Dodgers ever discussed having a fan fest type of event?

My friend Alex posted this on FB:
cute line of the day…noting that 500 truckloads of dirt were spread over Dodger Stadium for a supercross race and a monster-truck show, reader Doug Thomson of West Los Angeles e-mails to ask, “Did all that dirt come from the McCourt divorce trial?”

LMAO, deptoffishnwildlife!!!!!!

Ah,ha….deptoffishnwildlife transformed into messagebearcub! LOL

Cute sound effects.

When I refer to Frank or Ned, think of me using a growl and fart combination.

Josh,
I did not see you yesterday but I did have a nice chat with Mark Langill.

Love the gift I got yesterday (an Andre Either blanket)!

Happy Friday everyone!
