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.
