It started with my love for the Brooklyn Dodgers back in the 1940's.
Then after the team moved to Los Angeles, it was the Los Angeles Dodgers.
This, I might point out, was before the Arizona Diamondbacks came into existence.
I continued to follow the Dodgers even after we moved south of the border to Mexico.
I was able to follow the team there on television and a bookstore in Guadalajara even sold the Los Angeles Times.
So in 1988 when the team won the World Series I was following every play while wearing my Dodgers tee shirt.
And I sent this picture back to my friends in Phoenix who were supporting different teams.
That is the face of a happy baseball fan.
