3/19/12-Something Historical–Carullo’s Cave 2003-Photography by Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

Deep in the bowels of the visiting clubhouse at Shea Stadium (and I do mean bowels..haha), hidden behind the laundry room was Visiting Clubhouse Manager Tony Carullo’s secret hideaway for visiting players to relax and spend their hangovers. If you didn’t hit your head on the cross beam above climbing into it and didn’t mind not being able to stand up, you were able to enjoy solitude of three couches and a television set until batting practice. In this picture, then Dodger’s pitching coach Jim Colborn leads the pitchers meeting in 2003. Identifiable from left to right—Jim Lett, Jim Colborn, Guillermo Mota, Tom Martin, Rob Flippo, Paul Quantrill, Kaz Ishii,David Ross, Teppei Shiokawa and Paul Shuey.  Paul Loduca’s back is to the camera. I can’t make out who is behind Ishii.  Shot using my Leica M6 and 35mm/f2 on Tmax 3200  © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

2/17/12-Something Historical-Lima Holds Court-2004

Clubhouse favorite Jose Lima holds court in the dugout prior to game in 2004. Standing next to Lima is Paul Shuey. On the bench from right to left is Jose Hernandez, Guillermo Mota, Wilson Alvarez, Olmedo Saenz, Jeff Weaver, Eric Gagne and Tom Martin. He was the most colorful and energetic Dodger that I can remember.  Playing golf with him was always an adventure. I can’t remember a golfer coming up with so many birdies with so many strokes…haha.  © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers


I was also blessed with an invitation to photograph Jose playing the Conga Room after a night game. Jose had the place rocking.
