LA Trip 2018: Day 1 (Continued)

LA Trip 2018: Day 1 of a two-day trip to Los Angeles, California (Continued)… to be a guest at the Fred Claire Celebrity Golf Classic, an event to raise money for cancer research for City of Hope.

1:00 p.m. Mid-day at the Oakmont Country Club in Glendale, California… A gorgeous day to be outdoors… Ahhhh… did I say it was a Monday?

1:30 p.m. Dodger great Orel Hershiser chats with DodgersNation about what he’s been up to (including his friendship with Fred Claire and his current broadcasting career), with some of my books on display… I learned a lot, actually, being in the room listening in on Hershiser’s interview.

Here’s the great knuckleballer Charlie Hough, who’s holding two of my books. I had a chance to speak with him briefly – he loves to talk knuckleballs!
