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.

In what was my first posed photograph of Vin Scully, I asked him to pose with Tommy’s wife Jo, who was visiting Dodgertown. Seeing how much more relaxed everyone is during Spring Training, I had less fear of asking. As a young buck not knowing anyone during my first Spring Training, it was a huge step for me to get over my nerves and ask him.

I have taken a lot of images of Vin since that day and one of my favorites is from HIS bobblehead day in August of 2012 where divine intervention took place.

3/31/12-Something Historical-Sandy Koufax and Orel-Mid 1990′s-Photography by Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

I asked the legendary Dr. Frank Jobe how he got Sandy Koufax to be in uniform for his fantasy camp in the 90′s. According to Jobe, he was standing over Koufax with tools in hands about to do surgery on him and right before he went under, Jobe asked him if he would attend his first ever fantasy camp for doctors. Koufax wisely agreed and the result for me was a wonderful session with Koufax and Hershiser. This is one of the coolest images from the shoot. I am not sure if Orel was throwing to anyone but the late day light filled under their caps with gorgeous sunlight and the deep, rich colors shot on Fujichrome 100D made for a wonderful image. This session was done on the mounds of the strings area at Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Florida. Shot with Mamiya RZ67. Other images from this shoot will presented down the road.  © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

3/29/12-Something Historical–Holman Stadium 2004-Photography by Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

A view from Holman Stadium in Vero Beach,Florida during a night game against the Houston Astros from 2004.  Night games were always a lot more relaxed and a sunset like this just added to the setting. Vero Beach was a wonderful place to spend Spring Training and I have a lot of special memories from the 20 plus Springs I spent there. Shot with Canon EOS-1D and 24-70/2.8.      © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

2/16/12-Something Historical-Rest In Peace Gary Carter (1954-2012)

Gary Carter was one of the nicest gentlemen to wear any uniform.  I feel blessed to say I got to know him during the 1991 season when he was a member of the Dodgers. This photo was taken during Spring Training at Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Florida.   © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
