|Yes, Tuesday, January 22 was Dia de Rojo Chingon Day in Los Angeles, and watching the events at the City Council meeting was quite touching and entertaining. He was honored for his charity and community work, and being a great Angeleno who is always giving back.
From this point forward, January 22 will be celebrated in honor of him. I think of "Redturn2" as not only a great Dodger, but an inspirational human being.
Watch it here--I got tears in my eyes. He's the only position player left of a team that began a great run in 2013, and the one I associate most with our beloved Vinnie. A local kid through and through, he embodies what it means to be a Dodger.
Sunny, did you see?
