We Dodger fans have it pretty good. Although the franchise hasn't won a World Series in *cough* decades, we still have six championships to celebrate. And there's a reason why Vin Scully's approval rating is astronomically high. But we've got some hidden gems too, including Dodger Stadium organist Nancy Bea Hefley. Although her role has decreased in recent years, Nancy Bea at the Roland organ remains one of the best parts of the Dodger Stadium experience.
Thanks to Chris of dodgerfan.net, I was reminded of Nancy Bea, and of Beantown West's Erin and me complaining to Josh Rawitch about the loud canned music at Dodger Stadium. As if Josh were personally responsible.
But we were on to something: a throwback night at Dodger Stadium with no canned music, only the dulcet tones of Nancy Bea's music. No player introduction music (although who wouldn't want to hear Jay-Z's "Déjà Vu" on the organ?). No dot races or scoreboard antics to distract the crowd. (Quarter Dodger Dogs and fifty-cent beers would be nice too, but let's stay real here.)
In her early Dodgers years, [Hefley] played during batting practice, pitching changes and even when the groundskeepers prepared the field for play. She provided accent music for whatever was happening down on the field and adopted theme songs for various players.
I believe Nancy Bea has the stamina for such a game. Am I just an old fart, or would Dodger fans actually support this?
