2 More Days Till Opening Day at Dodger Stadium: Pirates vs Dodgers Preview
2 More Days! We are two days away from the Dodgers Home opener as the Boys in Blue return to a Sold Out Dodger Stadium to take on the Pittsburgh Pirates. Being in Dodger Stadium is an amazing thing. Dodger Dogs on the grill, Garlic Fries, Fresh Green Grass and the backdrop of Downtown Los Angeles in the Parking lot is an epic scene to see and the only place to experience it all at once is at Dodger Stadium. After a long-awaited Off-Season Dodger fans will pack the Stadium and will be amped up to see Regular Season Baseball played in front of them.
Not only is it Opening Day in Los Angeles but it’s also the 50th Anniversary of Dodger Stadium as well. April 10th will be the exact day Dodger Stadium opened it’s doors 50 Years Ago. Dodgers have a lot of things planned for that day that a lot of us will never forget. Beach Boys performing, Celebration of the 1962 Dodgers, and the First Pitch to be thrown by Terry Seidler (Mother Kay O’Mally Threw the first pitch at Dodger Stadium 50 Years Ago). A host of things to celebrate Dodger Stadium. A Day where Dodger baseball will happen history will be revisited.
Clayton Kershaw will be on the mound for that day and Fully Healthy after only lasting 3 innings with the flu. In front of many Dodger fans Seeing the Cy Young Award Winning Pitcher in action is always a treat and with him being fully healthy expect a great show at the Mound. Another is the match up between two Centerfielders in Andrew McCutchen and Matt Kemp which should electrify the Dodger Stadium Crowd. The Return of Rod Barajas to Dodger Stadium will be interesting to see. Barajas was the Dodgers Catcher last season and signed with the Pirates in the Off-Season. The big question for the Dodgers in my opinion will be pitching in the Bullpen and Starting Pitching. After a near messup in San Diego on Saturday by Chris Capuano and the Bullpen we’ll have to see if they can bring it for the Series. Billingsley had a outstanding game Friday but will he keep it up showing he’s ready? I see this as another Exciting Series between the two but Dodgers should have this one.
Overall the Home Opener will be Historic. Dodger Stadium 50th Anniversary and Kershaw getting his Cy Young the following night should have Dodger Stadium rocking on an All time high. Should be a big series at Dodger Stadium for the Dodgers with so many happening that day.
Dodgers take the Series 2-1
