Rest in Peace Bobby Welch, 1956 – 2014

It is a sad day today hearing that Bobby Welch passed away.
I did see Bobby strike out Reggie Jackson but it was not until the Summer of 1981 that I became a big Bobby Welch fan.
1981 was the first year I had season tickets. I had my ticket in the Loge level, aisle 3, row N, seat 3. I never collected autographs or took pictures with players. I just went to my seat, watch the game and left when the last out was recorded. Back then I was very shy. I was teaching myself how to follow the game and I thought myself how to keep score by looking at the sample in the Dodger magazine.
That Summer, Davey Lopes was not doing well and he was being booed at the stadium. I felt bad for Davey that he was being booed in his own stadium.
