Hello all Lasorda’s Lairians!
First of all I would like to thank Stacie, Kenny, and Jeremy for doing a wonderful job picking up the slack while I had been ill. I am truly blessed to be able to work with such wonderful writers and Dodger fans. These guys never miss a beat! I have a special treat for you guys today…..
Now to the good stuff. Our Senior writer, Kenny Shulsen, had the wonderful opportunity to go down to the Dodgers spring training complex in Glendale, Arizona. While it had been raining like cats and dogs out here in Socal, it is all sunshine over in Glendale, Arizona. Kenny had been down there for the last few days, and not only was able to go into the Dodger Clubhouse and press box, but was able to bring you guys a nice little treat. Kenny recently sat down and interviewed the Dodger’s top switch-hitting catching prospect “Griff” Gorman Erickson. Kenny speaks with Griff about his first days learning the catcher position, his rise through the minor league system, his future with the Dodgers, and his dream of one day playing at Dodger Stadium. Apparently Erickson is a lifelong Dodger fan. So basically he is one of us. Kenny, Stacie, Jeremy, and myself would like to thank Griff for taking the time to talk to Lasorda’s Lair. Kenny told me he was one of the nicest and most personable players he has ever met. He could not have been any more gracious. I want to thank Griff, and a big thank you goes out to Kenny for all his hard work down there this spring. I am hoping that next year I will be able to join Kenny down there for spring training as well.
