I love the picture of Manny being restrained by Russ in the NLCS last year.

Alejandro Peña said...

Does Darryl Strawberry really count as a Dodgers icon?

Josh S. said...

Does Pedro Martinez?

Pedro Guerrero said...

Ok, ok. How did Shawn Green make that list and make it onto the SoSG? How come Orel, Lasorda and Karros got on there but ME and Sax and Garvey and Delino and Alex got robbed? TERRIBLE.

Pedro, they left the ladies' favorites out. How on earth is possible they didn't include Gravey?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wait a minute...Pedro Guerrero exists? How can this be?

Steve Sax said...

How come Pedro's grammar is so challenged?

Neeebs said...

OK, we have a Pedro sighting. Now how about a Lasorda sighting?

Two comments on the photos:

1) I can't believe that people actually went to baseball games in their suits, ties, and fine hats. (see the Campanella photo and the Robinson photo)

2) Is it me or does Pee Wee Reese kinda remind you of Clint Howard?

Orel said...

PEDRO!

Ken said...

Is there anyway I can get the Drysdale and Koufax one on a 36 by 24 poster?

Steve Sax said...

@Ken, it depends on how big your printer is

Ken said...

@ saxy boy

well i could print several 12 by 8 and put them together.

would be a nice addition for any dodgers fan's wall.

Neebs, I agree with you on the suit thing. I am sure people went to games from work and there wasn't casual anything at work in those days.

Isn't that Branch Rickey (or Stephen Root) and O'Malley watching Campy catch that ball?

Gibby's Limp said...

It actually looks like Walter O'Malley on the right, and Peter O'Malley on the left.
