Episode 22 - Los Angeles Dodgers

Historic Dodger Stadium, home to the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Our PhD Committee is soaking up the rays and remembering why everybody loves LA.  They explore SoCal as Farley calls it.  Ed interviews George Altemose, a man who was once a kid that loved the Brooklyn Dodgers.  The Dodgers moved and George moved on but the great part of sports is that we can all remember.  Ed then describes his visit to Simi Valley and the Reagan Presidential Library.  During our 7th inning stretch, we hear the organ music from Dodger organist, Nancy Bea.  The podcast concludes as Ed, Farley and Mark say goodbye to the City of Angels and hello to Arlington, Texas – the home to both those Dallas Cowboys and first place Texas Rangers.

Ronald Wilson Reagan (1911 - 2004)

Ronald Wilson Reagan was the 40th President of the United States (1981 – 1989).  The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation & Library is located 46 miles northwest of Dodger Stadium in Simi Valley.

Ed Kasputis visited The Reagan Presidential Library on June 29th.  “During my California trip I had the opportunity to visit 4 of the state’s 5 Major League Ballparks.  AT & T Park and Dodger Stadium were spectacular” Kasputis said.  “I love baseball but the highlight of the trip was visiting The Reagan Presidential Library. During my morning tour I got goose bumps and wept on multiple occasions.  Ronald Reagan was my political Babe Ruth.”

Our PhD Committee will be reviewing The Reagan Presidential Foundation & Library during our podcast featuring the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday, July 23rd.  Ed, Farley and Mark will be reviewing this “must visit” Presidential Library.
