2/18/12-Something Historical-Dreifort’s Mike Scioscia HR Trot-May 12,1998

Rain delays at Dodger Stadium are rare but during this one May 12, 1998, Darren Dreifort found Mike Scioscia’s road uniform plus a few more pounds and approached the tarp. He stroked the ball over the right field pavilion and ran the bases ending up with a Scioscia-like thunderous thump dive across home plate like only Mike Scioscia could…haha. I don’t know if Mike knew this was going on as I don’t recall him sitting on the bench when Dreifort approached the plate. So this is for you Mike.
