Michael Becker confirms Bobblehead

Hey...my favorite Dodgers beat writer Michael Becker of the Press Enterprise confirms the story that I had yesterday. Wasn't able to find a Becker picture online. Just pretend there's a big picture of Becker here....

From his blog post:

If you weren't one of the 50,000 fans to have snagged a Manny Ramirez bobblehead, you are in luck. The Dodgers will host another Manny bobblehead giveaway scheduled for September 16 against the Pirates.

The first 50,000 fans will receive a bobblehead of Ramirez doffing his helmet to the crowd, just as he did July 22, when he entered as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning against the Reds and hit a grand slam.

True story....Last month when I was on the field at Dodger Stadium with my press credential, had no idea what to do, just stared at the field, Becker comes up and says "You have a blog? Vin Scully Is My Homeboy?"

"Yes, that's me"

Becker continues "I read it, I like your stories when you meet players"

Haha! Cool.

I think he was the only one that recognized me. Even though Dodgers.com beat writer Ken Gurnick kept staring at me. I think my camera was bothering him. Sorry Kenny!

That's scheduled as a Weds day game.

Yes, Wed day game. For the moment. It doesn't look like it's going to change.
