6/9/13-Something Else-Fernando Valenzuela and Dwight Gooden by Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers







During my second season with the Dodgers, Dwight Gooden came to town with the Mets.  Black and white film for night games was standard back then. I can’t say I miss the late nights swimming in trays of photo chemicals.



32 Years ago I photographed Fernando Valenzuela during the annual February exhibition game against USC when I was shooting for the Daily Trojan. It was his first appearance at Dodger Stadium. Yesterday was Old-Timers game and his most recent appearance on the mound at Dodger Stadium.



Now that the Old-Timers from yesterday are in my age demographic, I truly feel like an Old-Timer.

Beautiful pictures Jon. I was in attendance at that game against USC. Miss those games.
