8/2 Dodgers vs D-Backs

Since Manny was a Dodger, I had to attend a game to see him in real life. I couldn’t find any decent tickets for his first Dodger game, but I was hooked up with tickets from a fellow Dodger fan I met at signings. He has season tickets in reserve and he always has extra tix so I got some from him. My father and sis went as well. I knew the seats we were going to sit was a great spot to get noticed on Dodgervision so I made a custom Manny Ramirez jersey which was taped on a Dodger jersey. I got their around 5:30 and saw that Tommy Davis were signing autographs so I decided to get a ball signed. He was a very nice guy and offered to put inscriptions on the ball as well (most players dont put any inscriptions). I met my friend, Nick around 6 and headed for the seats. All in all, the game was awesome and the atmosphere was electrifying. Also, Manny hit his first HR as a Dodger and I was on the Dodgervision 3 or 4 times waving my Manny Jersey. We won 4-2! Here are some pictures. My sister’s camera battery died so I’ll post more pictures as soon as my friend, who took some more pics, emails them to me:
