There’s some really cool stuff going on this weekend for kids and moms (as well as women in general). That doesn’t mean that if you’re neither, you should stop reading because let’s be honest, even if you’re a dude, at some point you were a kid and you have or had a mom, right? And perhaps you have a kid, too.
So the first piece of exciting news is that Jeanne Zelasko will be joining the Dodger organization with numerous roles. First off, she’ll be handling play-by-play duties on our new DodgersWIN broadcast on home Wednesdays this season. And she’s going to host our new kids show, “The Jr. Dodgers Show,” which premieres tomorrow on PRIME TICKET at 12:30 p.m. If you remember “The Baseball Bunch,” it’s kind of like that but only about the Dodgers. I saw the pilot episode and if you’re a kid, you’re going to love it (and if you’re not, I still think you’ll enjoy it, to be honest).
And staying on the Jeanne subject, she’ll also throw out the ceremonial first pitch tomorrow on Mother’s Day, as will Desiree Sanchez, a co-worker of mine who has defeated breast cancer over the past year. Jeanne, who is also a cancer survivor, will serve as a spokesperson for both DodgersWIN and ThinkCure!
There are so many cool things for Moms tomorrow, you should do yourself (and your mom) a favor and come out here to the park. Players and coaches will hand out roses at the turnstiles (try to get here between 11:30 and 12 for that)…and then after the game, you can walk around the warning track with your family and meet some Dodger legends along the way. During the game, several players will be using the pink bats as in years past and they’ll all be wearing pink ribbons on their uniforms for breast cancer awareness.
Plus all sorts of pregame ceremonies honoring Moms, Moms taking the field with their kids and the Dodgers, and a whole bunch more.
But before Mother’s Day, we have today’s game on FOX and we could really use a win. Here’s the lineup:
