Stacie Wheeler has been writing about the Dodgers and taking photographs of her beloved Boys in Blue since 2010. She used to write daily about the Dodgers as the co-editor of FanSided’s Lasorda’s Lair for five long years. Stacie has also contributed to Dodgers Nation, Dodger Blue 1958 and The Hardball Times. Her photographs were published in the book The Dodgers: 60 Years in Los Angeles by Michael Schiavone.

Stacie was born in Tarzana, California and grew up in Southern California rooting for the Dodgers her entire life. She wrote her first game "recaps" in a notebook while watching games on TV, when they were televised, with her younger brother. Uncle Mark took the two baseball obsessive children to countless games at Dodger Stadium during their youth.

Stacie’s favorite player of all-time is Mike Scioscia. He wasn’t spectacular with the bat, but that wasn’t why she was so fascinated with the Dodgers’ backstop. It was Scioscia’s catching skills which intrigued and entertained her young baseball mind. Early on the catcher became her favorite position on the diamond.

Her family had the opportunity to meet Mike Scioscia in the Dodgers dugout in 1990 before a game after she wrote a letter to his manager detailing her fondness of No. 14. Scioscia was named an All-Star twice and won two World Series during his 13-year MLB career, which was spent entirely with the Dodgers.

Writing about her love of baseball was something Stacie never imagined would materialize into such an important part of her life when she was a little girl clutching on to her Dodgers Cabbage Patch Kid while listening to Vin Scully on her radio.

In addition to writing about the Dodgers, Stacie works in the motion picture industry for Cleared By Ashley where she handles third-party rights and clearances. Stacie has a B.A. in Cinema-Television from USC, and she’s thrilled to be working on movies and television.

Stacie currently contributes to Dodgers Digest and True Blue LA.
