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.

Sincerely,

Jon SooHoo–Chief Photographer-Daily Trojan 1983, Los Angeles Dodgers Team Photographer 1985-current.21712S006

Seventy-four years ago on June 12, 1939, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum opened its doors for the very first time. In celebration of the Museum’s Diamond Anniversary next year, LGH19 Productions will announce details of a major live event it will produce on Saturday evening, August 2, 2014 on the same stage the 2014 Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place six days earlier. The live event will feature some of the music industry’s top recording artists, as well as celebrities from the world of film, television and baseball, and take place in Cooperstown, New York on the pastoral grounds of  the Clark Sports Center.       .

Jeff Idelson, President of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, said, “We are so pleased that LGH19 Productions has chosen to produce a live event from Cooperstown next August, which will benefit the Hall of Fame and help honor its 75th year. Cooperstown is renowned for baseball. This event will allow music, movie and baseball fans to come together to celebrate in Cooperstown, just days after the 2014 induction ceremony.”

Robert Wuhl will MC the event at the Hard Rock Cafe, which will detail the plans for the live event, talent, and promotional partners. He will introduce celebrities, former MLB players and Hall of Famers. Jeff Idelson, Peter O’Malley, Tommy Lasorda, Larry King and Lee Mendelson, Executive Producer for Peanuts TV specials, are among others who are expected to attend.

Wuhl will then introduce Loren Harriet of LGH19 Productions, who will speak more about the year-long silent auction, the live event and organizations participating. They include Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, which has produced limited edition Baseball Hall of Fame Fender Stratocaster guitars, Peanuts Worldwide and Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, which has created 75 limited edition Baseball Hall of Fame Peanuts Posters, as well as Charitybuzz, which will host the silent auction. The live event will also celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Little League Baseball, as well as other iconic baseball organizations including American Legion Baseball and Minor League Baseball.
