Tommy Bahama presents “The Rundown with Steve Garvey” with special guests Tommy Davis and Maury Wills in a tribute to Jackie Robinson and Major League Baseball. A lively Q&A and meet and greet with these charismatic baseball greats will be held on Tuesday, April 15 from 5:30-8:30pm at the Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar in Palm Desert. The evening will benefit the Baseball Assistance Team (BAT), an organization founded to assist members of the "Baseball Family" in need. A portion of the proceeds from the event and 10% of all retail sales made in the Tommy Bahama Palm Desert store on April 15th will be donated to BAT.

The event takes place on Jackie Robinson Day, and these three Dodger favorites are coming together in a rare appearance to honor the one and only Robinson! MVP Steve Garvey played 14 seasons with the Dodgers, was a 1981 World Series Champion, a 10 time All Star, and still holds the National League record for most consecutive games played. Maury Wills played 12 seasons with the Dodgers, was a three time World Series champion, and is a base stealing legend. Tommy Davis was with the Dodgers for eight seasons, was a 1963 World Series champion, and holds two National League batting titles.

Guests will meet Steve, Tommy and Maury, take pictures with them (bring your camera!), and receive a Rawlings baseball autographed by all three of these baseball greats! Afterwards, Steve will host a fun and informative Q&A session where Tommy and Maury will take questions from the audience about their lives in baseball, the upcoming MLB season, and of course the legendary Jackie Robinson.

“The Rundown with Steve Garvey” is a new speaker series that will be held at Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar in Palm Desert. Each event will feature baseball greats and professional athletes in a small, intimate setting, sharing stories about their lives in sports and the relevant issues in the sports world today. It’ll be a night any sports fan won’t want to miss. The series begins on April 15 with the Tribute to Jackie Robinson and MLB, followed by an event on May 15 with Hall of Famer Johnny Bench.

Appetizers and signature cocktails will be served throughout the evening. Only 100 tickets will be sold for this incredible evening. Tickets are $195 and can be purchased by calling 760-836-0188.

Only 100 tickets? That's pretty exclusive, Dad. Let us know if you know someone's who's lucky enough to go!

Not going well in Friday's game. Zach lee gives up three in the first and four through 3.0 IP.

Lee seemed nervous at start, made a horrible throw to first on an Aybar bunt. He settled down a bit before getting pulled. Angels pitcher is spot on tonight, mixing 'em up and keeping the Dodgers fooled. He had Hanley in fits. Weird night, Dee showing range at second and working the DP smoothly with Hanley, and Uribe boots a ball on what is normally a routine play. Gotta think the Dodgers are just going through the motions and concentrating on not getting hurt right now. Wouldn't be surprised if lots of starters get rested big time tomorrow. Cheers from California, Saxie, was a pleasure meeting you in Sydney.

Thanks Andrew, it was great to meet you in Sydney for Game 2 as well!

Dodgers win in 10 innings.
