I have to admit this was pretty cool. It was a close game, tied in fact, there were 56,000 people there, Manny was out of the lineup with an injury, it was Manny bobblehead souvenir night. The ace of the Dodgers’ pitching staff was struggling. The Dodgers had the bases loaded, everyone knew it was a spot for Manny, and they knew something was up when the guy in the on deck circle was called back to the dugout. They were on their feet yelling even before he came out of the dugout. And they kept it up. The Cincinnati manager came out and brought in a new pitcher, who had to trot in and then throw eight warmup tosses. All this time the fans were going ballistic. Then on the first pitch Manny deposits a line drive in the left field seats, in the area designated as “Mannywood.” It was insane. You have to see the amateur video to get the idea.
