History revisited…

Pretty cool that just a few feet away, Vin Scully is doing the Dodger broadcast, Joe Garagiola is doing the D-backs broadcast and down in the dugout, Kirk Gibson is managing the D-backs. All three men were there on Oct. 15, 1988 when Gibby hit the famous home run in Game 1 of the World Series.

A few of us were joking before the game that when Gibson goes to the mound to pull out his pitcher, he should do a fist pump with his right arm like he did rounding the bases.

Meanwhile Joe G. and Joe T. were hanging in the dugout during batting practice and a ton of players came over to meet Garagiola. The broadcast area here is named for him and they have a cool timeline of his history in the game of baseball.
