At-Game Recap: Congratulations, Jaime Jarrin

In a pre-game ceremony yesterday, the Dodgers honored Spanish-language announcer Jaime Jarrin's 50th year with the team. (You can read an excellent interview with Jarrin at Dodger Thoughts.)

The man of the hour.

Vin Scully offers his best wishes from the broadcasting booth.

Pepe Yñiguez, a representative from the newspaper Hoy and Fernando Valenzuela present Jarrin with a framed jersey.

After Jarrin threw the ceremonial first pitch, Joe Torre was among the first to congratulate him. They stood together the for the national anthem.

Mariano Duncan offers some love.

A hug from Nomar.

Jarrin seemed especially pleased to see Chan Ho Park.

Jeepers creepers, Jeff Kent!

After the top of the seventh inning, Clayton Kershaw tried to high-five Derek Lowe, who walked right past him. Kershaw turned his upraised palm into one of those "You the man!" finger-points.

Which Delwyn Young did. Whoo hoo, free tickets to Universal Studios!

I am picturing Jarrin blindly rushing past all the other Dodgers and giddily zeroing in on CHP.
