The Day I Became a Dodgers Fan

Saturday, October 15, 1988. Game 1 of the World Series in Los Angeles. I was a 9 year old kid sitting in front of a TV, about 40 miles away from Chavez Ravine watching the drama unfold at home.

I have to admit, the A's looked intimidating, and it didn't help when Jose Canseco swatted what looked like the first of multiple homers during the series. But Kirk Gibson wiped all that away with one shoot-for-the-moon swing, and to this day I still believe he broke the will of that A's team with one at-bat at the end of Game 1. Sweet memories...
