As a refresher, each week we select one person from the world of Major League Baseball and then beg, bribe, cajole and/or twist their arm until they participate. We ask them five questions, they tweet their responses back to us, and we post ‘em here. The questions do not change, but how people interpret and answer them does. Think of this as our way to learn a little more about the people that play, cover, work with, tweet about and cheer on professional baseball teams, with an emphasis on the Dodgers.
Note: Keep in mind that Roberto kept to the spirit of the project by answering his questions via Twitter, so he had to make do with the 140 character limit for each answer.
Five Tweets with… Roberto from Vin Scully is my Homeboy
1. What excites you the most about this season?
Matt Kemp & Clayton Kershaw. It will be a big year for them. 20 Wins & 40/40!
2. What is your biggest concern about this season?
I’m not worried about the Pitching. I’m worried that Russell Martin and Manny Ramirez will struggle all season long.
3. What is your earliest baseball memory?
1991 Dodgers. I still hate the Atlanta Braves. One game behind them… Strawberry, Samuel, Butler, Daniels, Morgan, Martinez…
4. What is your favorite baseball memory?
Karros/Piazza/Mondesi/Nomo/Hollandsworth. I grew up watching these guys. I thought it was going to be a dynasty. Boy was I wrong.
5. Why do you love the game?
I don’t know. I remember my dad drew a baseball field on a paper. Explained the positions to me. Catcher, 1st, etc. Been hooked since.
