    Interesting how many of these guys did it in the “second half” of their careers. Uribe and Wynn near the end. Elster, Snyder, and Choi all did it in their final major league seasons.

  • Bob_Hendley

    I was there, in SD, when the Toy Cannon did his.

  • Larry Ham

    The very best of the lot was Elster’s performance. It was the first regular season game at the Giants’ new park. The Dodgers swept the series. What a great three days that was, especially for someone like me, stuck in an office full of Giant fans!!!!!

    John from Australia will be so excited:

    DODGERS ANNOUNCE PRELIMINARY 2014 SCHEDULE
    Los Angeles to play historic season-opener in Sydney, Australia on March 22 vs. Arizona
    LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced their preliminary schedule for the 2014 regular season. The team will open the season in Sydney, Australia, against the Arizona Diamondbacks for a historic series on Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23. The 2014 Opening Series featuring National League West rivals will be Major League Baseball’s first regular-season games to be staged in Australia and the Dodgers’ first regular season contests outside of North America. The Dodgers return to the U.S. and play at San Diego Monday, March 31 through Wednesday, April 2.

      We are going to be the road team for these games, which is an advantage, considering if anyone will have more fans there it will be us and the D-Backs will have 2 fewer home games on the season. Also with the way the schedule is spread out, we can have Kershaw and Greinke pitch the first 4 games of the season!!

    • Bob_in_Vegas

      No offense to John, but I don’t get it, from a domestic fan’s point of view. International play opens up other markets, but what about your own? I’m glad it’s AZ who has the two fewer games, not LA. It’s even worse for the NFL teams, who lose 1/8 of their schedule. . . . Plus, there’s the discombobulation (spell check recognizes that!) with the earlier start and (seemingly) endless traveling.

      Silver Lining Dept.: John gets to see the Blue . . . so maybe it’s worth it all, after all!

      • SaMoDodger

        I’m surprised it’s not one “home” game for each team. That’s how they’ve done it in the past.

        • btimmer

          Not always, when the Yankees played Tampa Bay in Tokyo, it was two Tampa Bay home games. Oakland also gave up two home games to play Boston in Tokyo.

          • John_from_Aus

            It’s a shame there will be no (happy) walkoff possible

        • Bob_in_Vegas

          That makes sense. The only reason to go for this is probably a smaller-market team who will draw bigger on the road . . . but who would want to see them?

        • John_from_Aus

          I have my ticket!! (to game 2 – the cheap seats sold out too quick for game 1, I got the last $99 ticket for game 2)

            I get to see Opening Day (stateside) here in SD

          • SaMoDodger

            Wow! That speaks to baseball’s popularity down under already. Or are there plenty of $250 seats still available?

    What the heck is Davey Lopes doing on this list? ;)

    • btimmer

      I remember the Davey Lopes game.

  • btimmer

    So are we all excited to watch the NL Batting title race come down to the final weeks in a 3-way battle among Chris Johnson, Michael Cuddyer, and Jayson Werth? Andrew McCutchen and Yadier Molina aren’t too far back either.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Just surprised that Jayson has been able to aaccumulated so many PAs at this point. Seemed that he was injured a bit this year.

      • btimmer

        Johnson wasn’t a fulltime starter for a while. He has 25 BBs to go with 102 Ks.

  • Bumsrap

    I think I watched Steve Bilco hit three on TV.

    • Bob_in_Vegas

      Let’s make it two in a row!

    • SaMoDodger

      Who does Drew Butera have to blow to crack this lineup!

  • jim hitchcock

    Shawn Green really should have been throwing out the first pitch last night. But who knew?

    Bob, do Canadians really not pronounce the second T in Toronto? Can I mark this down as one of the things I learned from watching Argo?

    • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

      I was told he threw out the 1st pitch. I don’t remember if I heard it on the radio or if it was one of the people who attended the game posted it on another thread

      • jim hitchcock

        He caught the pitch (thrown an some L.A. official) and then stuck around to catch Uribe’s at bats.
