What is your most memorable moment as an Oshawa Dodgers or if this will be your first
season, why did you want to become an Oshawa Dodger?
My most memorable moment with the Oshawa Dodgers really has nothing to do with baseball. Last

forget when many of the players came to the hospital the night of the accident and stayed well through
the night waiting to see if everyone was okay and lending their support.

Most Memorable Baseball Moment: The Dodgers first ever
playoff series victory versus Barrie in 2008 when Adam Garner
returned to the club to pitch in an extra innings win.  
Sentimentally it would be the Tribute day held for Troy May
last July.  It was so nice to see everyone out in recognition of
Troy's dedication to baseball and in support of his family.  That
was a very emotional day.    
    
Hobbies:
Shopping; watching sports, making lists and now it
seems constantly working on stuff for the Dodgers
