I’d like you to meet David Caldwell, a lifelong Dodgers fan from Jacksonville, Fla., who was kind enough to alert me that he was making the five-hour drive up for these first two National League Division Series games in Atlanta. David grew up in Virginia, but his grandfather was from Brooklyn, and he passed his passion for the Dodgers along to his grandson. David still remembers writing a letter to the Dodgers as a kid back in the early 1990s, just letting them know what a huge fan he was, and the club sending him back a package of souvenir items. He has great seats in Section 108, right beside the Dodgers dugout. I would tell you he is the guy in the Clayton Kershaw jersey, but honestly, there are a bunch of Clayton Kershaw jerseys down there right now.
I love these face-to-face meetings with the readers, so to restate what I said in an earlier post today, let me know if you’re going to be in a place where it’s conducive for us to meet and we’ll find a way to get it done.
