3/25/12-Something Historical-1995 All Stars-Arlington,Texas-Photography by Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

The 1995 All Star game in Arlington, Texas was my first and only All Star game. The importance of being there was having five Dodgers on the All Star roster-Mike Piazza, Todd Worrell, Jose Offerman, Raul Mondesi and Hideo Nomo. The day before the game is always hectic with media day, batting practice and team photos. MLB Photos Head Rich Pilling was gracious enough to allow me to not only assist him with his light set-up but also let me get what I traveled from Los Angeles to get which was the five Dodgers together after the team shot was completed. Not all team photographers or media photographers are allowed out onto the outfield during the team photos but Rich took care of me(Thanks Rich!).  Tony Gwynn was walking by while I was shooting my five and he wanted to get in the photo. Really? Awesome! Then as Barry Bonds was walking by, Gwynn told him to get into this picture which is when Bonds gave me the look in the top photo. They all posed and smiled and to this day it is one of the coolest moments of my career and one of my favorite images even beyond the photo of the five Dodgers. Shot with my Nikon FM2,  35/1.4 on Fujichrome 100D and a Vivitar 283 (still one of my favorite on camera strobes).   © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

3/21/12-Something Historical–Worrell Brothers 1997-Photography by Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

Since the Padres play here at Camelback today, I am putting up a couple images of the Worrell Brothers, Todd and Tim from 1997. One photo was from the Hall of Fame game in Cooperstown and the other was from Dodger Stadium with their father. That was the coolest jacket that their father wore. On the back Worrell was split between the two team’s lettering. That was all fine until Tim ended up with the Giants.   © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
