July 9, 2011 The Day A Revolution Was Born
July 9, 2011 is a day that I will remember as the day the fans of the greatest organization in sports stood up and said we are taking our team back. I think the efforts of the fans last year is the reason we are where we are today. We have new ownership, the future looks bright and we are going forward full steam ahead. Yes there is still work to be done, but I believe that Guggenheim Baseball Management is doing what it needs to do to improve the product on the field not only now but for years to come. They have shown to have a priority in rebuilding the farm system and re-establishing the Dodgers in the international market. I look forward to seeing this new young core of players develop and work there way up to the Major leagues.
People ask why Save The Dodgers? What do they need to be saved form? Or they have new owners now, aren’t they saved? The answer for me is simple, yes we are on the right path, but to me as a fan I always want my team to be safe, to be saved. I will look out for them like a family member to make sure we never go down that destructive path again. So for me, I will always want to Save The Dodgers and I know many of you feel the same way I do.
There are two links below; the first shows just what happened on July 9. Fox was broadcasting the game as it Game Of The Week and the announcers agreed that they had never seen fans protesting the ownership of the club. The second video is a short documentary by my friend Juan Diego Ramirez titled “Blue Revolution”. I have discussed this documentary before and now it is available to view in its entirety at the link below. Please set aside 25 minutes to watch it. It gives you a great perspective on what the boycott was about, not just from the people boycotting, but also those that were against it.
I thank all the fans, those that were apart of all of this a year ago and those that are new and a part of this page now. We all want the best for out team and we always will. We will continue longing for our Boys in Blue and cheering for them in the good times and the bad, but I think we are about to see a lot of good times ahead of us.
Thank You Dodger Fans!
