7/23/12-Something Historical–St.Louis Cardinals Through My Years by Jon SooHoo/©Los Angeles Dodgers,LLC 2012

 During my time shooting for the Los Angeles Dodgers, one of my favorite photos was of our own Vin Scully posing with St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster Jack Buck prior to Buck’s passing years ago.

In the middle of this photo is the original TJ, Terry Johnson, conducting the playing of the Budweiser Anthem from the press box at Old Busch Stadium. Sitting next to TJ was sportswriter Gordon Verrell (L)  and former Dodgers PR Exec and my former Spring Training roommate, Jay Lucas.

 I was fortunate enough to get this photo at Dodger Stadium while waiting for the anthem to be sung when the singer did it from centerfield. While out there waiting, both Mark McGwire and Eric Karros made their way to centerfield as part of their warm up. When they came to shake hands, I asked them to pose and to this day it is one of my favorite moments. I went to SC with McGwire and Mr Bruin himself went to UCLA.

 

This photo was taken during batting practice in the early 90′s of Tommy and Vin at Old Busch Stadium. Old Busch Stadium had a wonderful charm about it. The gorgeous arches made some wonderful designs on the turf when the sun shined through them, some really cool photos could be achieved. One of the huge drawbacks of the place was the carpet that was used instead of real grass. The heatwave during a hot afternoon would cause a lot of issues for photographers as it would cause a lot of blurry photos especially from my manual focusing lenses. I didn’t need any help with blurry photos as I could do plenty on my own.

These are just a few of my favorites involving the St.Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

1/26/12-Something Historical—Late 1980′s-Vin Scully Interviews Tommy Lasorda at the Old Busch Stadium

Vin Scully interviews Tommy Lasorda at the old Busch Stadium in St. Louis during the late 80′s. Boyd Robertson oversees the interview as he still does for Vin.  The old stadium was one of the prettiest to photograph with those archways at the top. Late day shadows made some gorgeous designs on the field. It was also one of the hottest off that carpet when we visited usually in June or July.     © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers

1/25/12-Something Historical—Ted Williams speaks to the Dodgers-March 2000

A special visit to Dodgertown by Ted Williams brought everyone in camp to the home clubhouse.  Shawn Green (L to R),  Tom Lasorda Ross Porter, Bob Daly, Bruce Froemming, Craig Callan and Davey Johnson. He spoke to the ball club about hitting and his life experiences then boarded a private plane from Vero Beach Airport back to Ocala.  At the airport assuming I was going to be taking photos from the ground of the them departing, Tommy screamed for me to get on board. So I joined Tommy,  Public Relations Assistant Ruth Ruiz on this private plane to drop off Mr Williams. Thanks Tommy….Truly a real cool experience.    © Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers
