Baseball dreams

I wish I had some of tix.jpg these for Game Six at Edison Field in Anaheim.

We moved to Westwood (home of UCLA) when I was nine years old. The Dodgers had moved to LA from Brooklyn only two years earlier, and their 1959 team went to the World Series. The sports pages were crazy about their new team, and so was I. I still remember the portable radio I carried around the house, listening to every minute of the broadcasts on KFI with Vin Scully and Jerry Doggett. I used to make scoresheets in spiral notebooks, and I'd religiously keep track of all the hits, runs, errors and outs. I was hooked, and I have been ever since. Someday I'll make it to a World Series game.
