Then Rockies’ outfielder Juan Pierre races Dodger pitcher Darren Dreifort to first base. Taken at Coors Field May 21, 2001.
Because it was taken that long ago, I can’t remember who won the foot race but I am sure some baseball-aholic will let me know.
But in the words of Dodgers first base coach Davey Lopes to our pitchers during Spring Training drills….”Just tag him!”
Still made a really cool frame of three of my favorite Dodgers. That is Karros in the background.
Rain delays at Dodger Stadium are rare but during this one May 12, 1998, Darren Dreifort found Mike Scioscia’s road uniform plus a few more pounds and approached the tarp. He stroked the ball over the right field pavilion and ran the bases ending up with a Scioscia-like thunderous thump dive across home plate like only Mike Scioscia could…haha. I don’t know if Mike knew this was going on as I don’t recall him sitting on the bench when Dreifort approached the plate. So this is for you Mike.
