The Dodgers celebrated their arrival to Los Angeles 50 years ago by returning to their original LA home: The Coliseum. One hundred fifteen thousand fans gathered last night at the Coliseum in a celebration of LA's home team to watch the Dodgers play the Red Sox in a spring training match up. And guess what, I took photos.

Okay but the photos suck. This is because in a string of bad luck, my good camera lens broke and I had to work with what I have left, which isn't much. Also (as part of this lucky year I've been having) I have a fractured foot which means I am hobbling around and it hurts to walk, so I didn't move around much to get better shots. That being said, I did my best. I am also experimenting with this new photo gallery format so let us know how you feel about it (the story is in with the photos, so you must click on them!!).
