82 home games per season (plus playoffs) isn’t enough Thinking Blue for some local Dodgers aficionados. The community-minded Los Angeles Dodgers of Echo Park (67-43) are picking up that slack, and offering even more chances for local families to enjoy Our Boys in Blue.

Round 1 - Fernandomania ‘09

Dodgers legend (then: star pitcher, now: Spanish-language broadcaster) Fernando Valenzuela, presents the fourth installment of “Los Amigos de Fernando,” Sunday, August 9.

Valenzuela and Los Doyers have given birth to a program which brings children’s groups from around the city to see the ballclub with the best record in the league. Thanks to sponsor Cacique, Fernando’s tiny amigos will get to watch the NL West Champs battle the Atlanta Braves from a luxury suite. (A suite is a very high SPF-rating.)
