It’s been a busy day around the stadium…it started out with workouts for the prospects and Don Mattingly was here, as was Matt Kemp. Afterwards, all our prospects headed up to the Stadium Club for a luncheon with the fans who lead various groups in outings to Dodger Stadium and each table had a prospect sitting with them.
Don and Ned took questions from the fans in the Stadium Club and then spent time signing autographs and taking pictures with everyone.
Tomorrow, the media is invited out to watch the workouts and talk with the prospects and Donnie, so you’ll likely see lots of stories in the various outlets that cover us regularly.
Meanwhile, many of you may remember the LA Sports Awards, which is the annual awards ceremony hosted by the LA Sports Council and televised by Fox Sports West each February. Well, voting has started at www.lasports.org and you can see that various Dodger moments are there for the voting, so check it out.
And on a much more serious note, thank you all for your continued thoughts for the Green family. For those who posted comments in our last post, we’ll make sure they’re included in the tribute book but feel free to also send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, as we’ll be compiling all of them in a memorial book for the family.

As many of you know, the horrible tragedy yesterday in Tucson, AZ has touched very close to home, as the nine-year old girl who was killed, Christina Green, is the daughter of our National Crosschecker John Green. Frank McCourt issued the following statement last night:
“We lost a member of the Dodgers family today. The entire Dodgers organization is mourning the death of John’s daughter Christina, and will do everything we can to support John, his wife Roxana and their son Dallas in the aftermath of this senseless tragedy. I spoke with John earlier today and expressed condolences on behalf of the entire Dodgers organization.”
And of course, since learning of her ties to the Dodgers, we have received an outpouring of support from fans, front office members and media members looking to pass along their thoughts.
Feel free to share yours in the comments here and we’ll make sure that John, Roxana and the whole family receive this.
We truly thank you all for keeping their family and the families of all the victims in your thoughts and prayers.
