The roof is open at Chase Field and it’s nice to be in Arizona when the thermometer is still in double digits. And the Dodgers have won seven of their last 10, so hopefully they’re getting into a groove.
Meanwhile, how about this nugget we dug up today? The last time a Dodger flirted with batting .400 this far into a season was Willie Davis in 1971. After May 10 that year, he was hitting .375 and went 4-for-4 to put himself at a .395 clip. With Andre Ethier striking out in the first inning, I believe he falls down to .392 but it’s still pretty impressive what he’s done for the first five-plus weeks of the season.
And for those who have been waiting for individual tickets to go on sale for the Yankees series in June, we officially announced today that a mini plan is the only way to get tickets for that series. Based on the overwhelming demand we’ve had from our season ticket holders, who have always had first crack at buying extra tickets for games like Opening Day or the playoffs, it has become clear that there simply won’t be any tickets to put on sale to the general public.
Of course, that also means we’ll hopefully have a lot of Dodger fans in the house for one of the most anticipated series we’ve had in quite some time at Dodger Stadium.
Anyway, back to the game…John Ely just got out of the first inning and there’s no score. At this point, it’s probably too late to post the lineup. If you’re reading this, you probably already know our starting nine…
Willie Davis was truly one of the most talented players ever to wear a Dodger uniform and for those who got to know him, he will undoubtedly be missed.
