Kenny Shulsen, is a senior writer for Lasorda’s Lair. He spent his summers at Dodger Stadium with his Grandpa T.R. from Santa Barbara, whose company fortunately had corporate box seats. He developed a passion ”For Dodger Baseball” as the great Vin Scully would so eloquently say it, spending his summers watching the great Dodger teams of the mid/late ’70′s. He lists going to World Series Game 3 in 1977, Dodger Dogs, Ron Cey, Gibson’s Dinger, Mike Piazza and ”Game Over” Gagne among his favorite All-Time Dodger memories. He rejoiced with Dodger Nation in 81 when they finally bet the Damn Yankees in the World Series; was devestated when Ozzie Smith took Tom Niedenfuer deep; wanted to cry when Jack Clark in ’85 (Niedenfuer AGAIN) did in the Dodgers; but then there was 1988: Orel the Freaking ‘Bull Dogg’ Hershiser, Tommy Lasorda’s genius and Kirk Gibson’s game 1 homer leading LA to the title. He hopes the Dodgers can keep their core of young talent together and that the McCourts are forced to sell the franchise sooner than later.
