Good Day LA’s Steve Edwards is a huge Dodger fan. He’s also an honest Dodger fan.

While 3,000,000 confirmed they were at Dodger Stadium on that fateful night Kirk Gibson hit his iconic home run exactly 21 years ago today, Edwards admits the truth.

“You know that shot of when he hits it you see the parking lights of the cars go on in the parking lot,” Edwards asks. “I was already out of the ballpark. I was in my car the moment it happened.

“That’s why it’s my favorite moment. My wife never forgave me. She made a t-shirt that I had to wear on AM Los Angeles that said, ‘I left early.’ I had to wear it for two days.”

Edwards is a veteran broadcaster in LA having started in 1978 on Channel 2. He moved over to KABC 7 in the mid-80s hosting the aforementioned AM Los Angeles, a precursor to Live with Regis and Kathie Lee”. In 1994 he hosted a sports talk show on AM 790 KABC called “Sportstalk 790”.

“I broadcasted from a booth at Dodger Stadium for all the games,” Edwards said. “I absolutely had the best seat in the house.”

As for now, “My favorite place to watch playoff games is in my underwear in my living room. The party is wherever I am. ”

“I think for some reason having been to all those games at that point, that the underwear in the living room became even better.”
