2/4/12-Something Historical–1988 Informal Reunion in Oakland-July, 2001

Interleague play brought us to Oakland in 2001 where I was able to get this group shot of members of the 1988 World Champions.

In it are John Shelby (L to R), Jesse Orosco, Mike Davis, Manny Mota and equipment man Super Dave Wright.

Whenever I can, I try to get members I run into along the way to get in these group shots.

It is my goal to get a reunion together of the entire 1988 team someday.  Center fielder John Shelby said it is time to do something. He said “Even my minor league championship team had a 10 year reunion”.    © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers


2/4/12-Something Historical—Bowling Night at Vero Bowl-February,2004

Los Angeles Dodgers staff sometimes weekly bowling tournament led by commissioner Glenn Hoffman (L) helped us pass the time during the long Spring. Along with the rugged basketball games on the outdoor court at Dodgertown, bowling was a great way to bond with fellow staffers. Only a few in this photo remain with the organization which was taken in 2004.  © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
