In what was one of the busiest Saturdays I can remember with Dodgers visiting all over the city, Juan Ocampo covered Ned Colletti during LA Rotary’s Angel City Christmas at Algin Sutton Recreation Center in Los Angeles during the morning then Tommy Lasorda and Steve Yeager at Century City Mall for the Dodgers Westfield Mall Tour. Patrick Gee covered the Dreamfield dedication with Wes Parker, Dennis Powell and Derrell Thomas at the Roy Campanella Park in Compton. I met up with Lee Lacy for the Echo Park Parade in the morning then photographed Adrian Gonzalez giving away toys at the East Los Angeles Toy Giveaway at the East LA Civic Center.
