In the midst of all the joy about the arrival of our new catcher Johjima, I wanted to mention that the Dodgers signed Pat Borders to a minor-league contract and gave him an invitation to spring training. As one of the last known members of the Pat Borders Fan Club, I'm really happy for him!
Looks like the Las Vegas 51's (the Dodgers' AAA affiliate) will be in Tacoma from July 17-20 (Mon-Thu) and August 19-22 (Sat-Tue). If I don't get to a Rainiers game before then, you can be sure I'll make a run for the Borders sometime during those games.
Also, I bought my ticket today for Saturday's Fan Fest, so I'll definitely be there. Yay!
