We at Dodgerfan.net have been reading a lot this anniversary year about many of the individuals close to the organization who are somewhat “unsung” heroes. We try to call out as many as we can – and Dave Pearson certainly deserves a call out for his work over the past 40 years.
– Pearson has missed only ONE home game in the last 40 years (and that was because of jury duty).
– According to Tommy Lasorda, Pearson’s meatballs are one of only three in the world worth eating.
– The Dodger’s Head Chef started out boiling Dodger Dogs before moving up to the Stadium Club and finally, about a decade ago, cooking for the press box and the private dining establishment “Dave’s Diner” (inside the stadium).
I’d encourage you to read the LAT article and take a look at the video of the article linked above.
