Dodger Dreams

Bill Plaschke, a treasure of a writer on the L.A. Times, pens a tear-jerker of a column today about Maurice Gardner, a dying Dodger fan from Martinsville, Va., attending his first game at Dodger Stadium.

>>"I may not love the Dodgers any more than Tommy Lasorda," Gardner says in his syrupy Southern twang, "but I guarantee I love them just as good."<<

I'll be heading to Chavez Ravine in a couple of weeks. I'll think of Maurice when I'm there, remembering the blessing I had as a youth to watch Garvey, Cey, Lopes and Russell in that beautiful venue.
