      LA Dodgers Ladies Spring Training Clinic

      Just got back from the LA Dodgers Ladies Spring Training Clinic and I had a blast! I got an autograph and a hug from Hall-of-Famer Tommy Lasorda and an autograph, picture and a "high-five" from Dodger legend Maury Wills. We had 5 groups and we rotated through the pitching, hitting, fielding, baserunning and Q & A stations. I won a prize for "Stumping the Pros" with a question that no one had the answer to.

      I injured my thumb at the hitting station. The only regret I have is that I didn't get to meet Manny Mota.

      We got a hat, t-shirt, voucher for a free ticket to a Spring Training game, car decal, a lanyard and a magazine. After the clinic we had a catered barbeque dinner. Then I had a two-hour drive home.

            I'm currently a player without a home. There's not one single womens team or league in the largest state of the union of Texas. Blows my mind.

            Used to play for New York, and played against the Heat as a guest of the Chicago Gems in 2006

              Are you going to try to get something started there? I know Atlanta was a bust. Hopefully you will have a better chance in Texas.

                      You can bet your bottom dollar that the next state I move to, will have a baseball team/league! Should have learned my lesson the 1st time around! Or stayed in New York...

                          Just about everything. You name it, I've probably done it.

                          Besides my secret project right now, I'm awaiting callbacks from a few independent league teams (Airhogs, and Cats) and the Texas Rangers.
