This year on Veterans Day we were able to go with about 80 military families to participate in a special event at Dodger Stadium. John was able to get some batting practice and personal coaching from Tommy Lasorda. He is was a former Major League baseball player and manager of the Dodgers and was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997. It was pretty obvious John is not a baseball player as Mr Lasorda gave him some true advice about his batting skills. To watch the video click on the link below!! It is pretty funny. Although I should mention his first hit was 10 feet shy of the left field wall!
He was also able to throw some pitches in the Dodger bullpin and get a private tour of the Dodger clubhouse. The girls thought they were pretty special to get their very own Dodger hat and all you can eat Dodger Dogs, Cracker Jacks and more!! I had a really fun time taking all three girls to the bathroom twice, trying to manage four plates full of food and four drinks with only little hands to help. I'm sure it was quiet a scene to watch my balancing act!! :) What us mothers do behind the scenes to sacrifice for our hubbies! John did join us eventually and despite my single parent moments we had a really fun day.
