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.


4:00 p.m. It’s DodgersNation chatting with the one and only Tommy Lasorda, the long-time former manager of the Dodgers!

Jerry Reuss and Mickey Hatcher were also at the event to help raise money for Mr. Claire’s cause.

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!

6:00 p.m. Dinner began, and then a silent auction and speeches.







in terms of the speeches, there were some inspirational words spoken by Mr. Claire himself, a couple of doctors, and Tommy Lasorda.

All in all, an enjoyable and inspirational evening…
