1/12/14-Something Historical-Spring Training 2001-by Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers

ASU Sun Devils vs USC TrojansSpring Training 2001

On the mounds at Dodgertown stood a pretty cool line-up of right handed pitchers….Darren Dreifort, Chan Ho Park, Ramon Martinez, Andy Ashby and Kevin Brown. Coaches Dave Wallace, Jim Colborn and Jim Riggleman watch over the session held in the strings area.

What was so cool for me was that everyone was in the Dodgers Classic home white uniforms this day instead of the blue  jerseys that are worn the rest of the time.

I appreciate the Dodgers who continue to wear the home whites for Spring Training home games and regular season home games. A lot of teams have turned to the alternative dark tops which to me, look like a softball league.

All of my peers appreciate it too.  Sports stock photographers from all over Florida use to make the drive to Dodgertown for our home games to get our team in white because no other teams were wearing their real home jerseys.

2/10/12-Something Historical-Indy 500 Champion Helio Castroneves visits Andy Ashby in the clubhouse–August 2001

Helio Castroneves shows off his ring for winning the Indy 500 back in 2001 to pitcher Andy Ashby. Cross promotions with other sports teams and venues are always fun since athletes sometimes get to experience something different. Since I shoot for the California Speedway (now Auto Club Speedway) and through then Speedway PR boss Dennis Bickmeier, I was able to arrange our pitcher Andy Ashby a chance to ride around the California Speedway in an open wheel two seater to experience the speed that Castroneves experiences every race.  Images of his experience will be for another blog entry.  © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
