Dodger Photo Essay in the LA Business Journal

Mrs. Cora alerted me to this nice photo essay by Ringo H.W. Chiu in the Los Angeles Business Journal (March 22-28, 2010, Vol. 32, Number 12). The picture of the pictures far from do them any justice (especially the 2 page spread stadium picture) so if you have a chance to pick up a copy, check them out.

Big Blue: Diamond Polishing. The team is at its spring training site in Arizona until March 31. But workers at Chavez Ravine have been busy getting Dodger Stadium ready for the season. The Dodgers, perhaps L.A.'s best-known business, employ about 200 people who work in the office and maintain the grounds. They're sprucing up the field, printing tickets, helping fans book seats and rolling fresh paint wherever it's needed. All so that everything will be ready for an April 1 exhibition game and the April 13 home opener.

Why is the timestamp on this post out of sequence? I'm confused.

I just noticed that myself. AC must have a HOT TUB TIME MACHINE.

I was going to post it tomorrow, but it screwed up. Oh well, at least it works...

Nice spread, AC. So to speak...

Yeah. If I had a Hot Tub Time Machine, I'd totally go back in time and post threads like the day before to get seemingly inaccurate timestamps.

I wish.
