4/28/15-Something Special-Abel’s Awesome Adventure with Tommy Lasorda by Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers
After being in tears after a misunderstanding with Dodgers Hall of Fame Manager Tommy Lasorda, 4 year old Abel Duron of Henrietta,Texas was given the experience of a lifetime.
Abel’s father Navy E-6 Aviation Technician 1st Class Jeffery Duron was being honored as the Dodgers Military Hero of the Game and was on the field for batting practice with his family.
Wanting nothing to do with Tommy, Abel calmed down and Tommy began to work his charm to win back Abel and took him by the hand on an adventure that he will remember forever.
into the clubhouse to meet Juan Uribe, and Adrian Gonzalez. Abel got his own special tour of the restricted area of Dodger Stadium where he got to hang out with Adrian, Yasiel then back onto the field where he was all smiles for Tommy.
And way to go Tommy!!!
