TBLA at the Dodger Blogs Softball Tournament, April 11, 2015

Our team photo! - Jon SooHoo

We had great fun representing True Blue LA at the third Dodgers Blog Softball Tournament held at Big League Dreams Fields in West Covina. Many thanks to Mike of The Left Field Pavilion for organizing this enjoyable event.

Rather than trying to embed any of our photos here, I am going to link to my flickr album of these pictures: This link will open in a new tab or window.

(The link is to the album overview, click on a photo to enlarge, or click on the first one and simply page through them. You have to enlarge or page through to see the "descriptions" where I identified folks.)

While I supplied the camera, all the pictures were actually taken by Jennifer Astin (thank you so much!) except for the two photos captioned "Early Birds", which were taken by someone on site working for Sports Net LA, who were doing some coverage from the event.

Please let me know if I got any of the names wrong in the captions/descriptions, or if there is anything else I need to correct.

Thanks to all the players for attending and making it a fun event: Jesus, Daisy, Menhaz, Danny, Mack, Mary, Nick, Matthew, Josie - we couldn't have done it without each and every one of us! (Given that we had the minimum number of players and all played every inning!)

Special thanks to Josie for coordinating and being our captain and liaison to the tournament.

And a hearty thanks for having some fans to cheer us on: Jennifer Astin, Mr and Catherine the Blue, Daisy's family/friends and Megan (I don't know how she spells it!) who was willing to be seen in public with Nick.

(For the record, we went 1-2 in our games and did not advance to the elimination round.)

Additionally, Jon SooHoo, the Dodgers photographer was on hand to capture images of the event as well. Here is a link to his blog entry with all his published photos from the tournament. Listed below are links to specific pictures of his that include us.

Our fantastic team photo by Jon. (as shown above)

Daisy plates a run.

Mary give it a rip.

As does Matthew.

Some of us are in the background of this inning change.

Mary takes the mound.

And makes a pitch.

Mack about to record a putout with fine, two-handed form (Vin would approve!).

The pitch is in the air!

Dave fielding a single.

I hope that Danny was ...

... wearing a cup!

Part of our defense.
