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.

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.
