1/22/12-Something Historical–Early 1990’s-Mike Scioscia with Campy-Dodgertown in Vero Beach, FL

  In what is actually one of my favorite Dodger photos, Mike Scioscia has a light moment with Hall of Fame catcher Roy Campanella during team workout at Dodgertown in Vero Beach,Florida.  Roy and his wife Roxie would visit every Spring. While Roy was talking to catchers, Roxie would be playing cards (P nuckle) with other staff members (including me) with her famous East Coast Rules vs West Coast Rules, while enjoying the full Spring Training experience that once was Dodgertown.       © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
