7/14/15-Something Historical–1995 All Star Starting Pitchers Hideo Nomo and Randy Johnson by Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers
It is hard to believe that it was 20 years ago when I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph my first All Star game. Being one of the few team photographers allowed in the outfield while MLB Photos Chief Rich Pilling set up to do the actual team photos, I was able to pull off this pretty cool image of the two starting pitchers…Los Angeles Dodgers Hideo Nomo and Seattle Mariners Randy Johnson between the team photos.
I consider it an honor to be given both of their permission to do this shot even with being Randy’s photo boss at the Daily Trojan years earlier. Thank you for letting me record your history gentlemen. Congratulations next week to you Randy.
One awesome part of working for the Dodgers is being able to attend the Baseball Hall of Fame Ceremony in Cooperstown, New York whenever a Dodger or someone close to the organization is inducted. Dave Winfield and Kirby Puckett were inducted at this ceremony in 2001 which included Los Angeles Times writer Ross Newhan who received the J.G. Taylor Spink Award. This photo of Lou Brock, Bob Gibson and Sandy Koufax just stood out as a nice, light moment among three great competitors. I have been fortunate enough to make it to Cooperstown for induction ceremonies and two Hall of Fame games at Doubleday Field between the Dodgers/Cleveland Indians rained out in 1993 and Dodgers/San Diego Padres in 1997. © Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers
