Malingering Went to the Dodger Game Yesterday
One of our favorite LA photographers, Malingering, went to the Dodger game last night. She has a great eye for both fashion and sports. We wonder if she would ever be an LAist contributer? Hmmmm. One can dream.
Last night, of course, was Jackie Robinson Day all around the country, including Chavez Ravine, where Hank Aaron and Frank Robinson and even Jennifer Hudson showed up to honor an American hero.
Way more pictures after the jump
Jennifer Hudson singing the hell out of the National Anthem:
Is this Dodger Owner Frank McCourt getting hit by a foul ball as Tommy Lasorda watches?
Why the terrorists hate us:
Why they love us - Hank Aaron and Frank Robinson after throwing out the first pitch:

Everyone was there to celebrate Jackie Robinson and watch the Dodgers all wear the number 42:
Many of the fans joined in
The Dodgers weren't perfect in the field
Even their ballboy missed a grounder, got plunked and was knocked out
But, Jeff Kent hit his 2,000th hit
And the Dodgers won
