Steven Patrick Garvey (born December 22, 1948), nicknamed Mr. Clean because of the squeaky clean image he held throughout his career in baseball, is an American former Major League Baseball first baseman and current Southern California businessman.

May you rest on piece my friend. You will be missed !!! MLBPA Executive Director Michael Weiner passes Revered Union leader succumbs to 15-month battle with brain cancer NEW YORK, NY, Thursday, November, 2013 … The Major League Baseball Players Association is sad to announce that its Executive Director, Michael Weiner, today lost his heroic, 15-month battle with brain cancer. He passed away quietly at home in New Jersey surrounded by his loving wife, Diane, and three daughters. Despite being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in August of 2012, and until his passing, Michael, 51, continued to serve the players and provide leadership and counsel to the MLBPA staff. Michael joined the MLBPA as Counsel in 1988, at age 26, and in 1989 was promoted to Assistant General Counsel. He was later promoted to Associate General Counsel and, in 2004, to General Counsel. Michael was named Executive Director by the MLBPA Executive Board on December 2, 2009, replacing the retiring Donald Fehr. Michael oversaw col ...

Top 5 Los Angeles (not Brooklyn) Dodgers of all time: Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale, Maury Wills. Don Sutton and Steve Garvey
In 5 minutes - Great Steve Garvey will join and on to talk
Just placed a dollar bet on the series with Steve Garvey.
It's gonna be a tough NL series for me. My mothers family was from St. Louis. So I was a Cardinals fan in the 60s. I still have a mug from 1967 when they won the pennant. Then in the 70s I was a Dodgers fan because on Ron Cey (from Tacoma) Steve Garvey Dusty Baker and Steve Jeager. Do know who I'm rooting for tonight!?! Discuss
*ugh* sports people I will always loath: Kirk Gibson, Steve Garvey (okay, pretty much every LA Dodger ever), Joe Buck, A-Rod, John Elway, Pete Rose (but not for gambling), A.J. Pierzynski, and you can add Justin Verlander to that list. I freaking hate that guy.

Could Reagan do a better job than Obama? No more so than Steve Garvey could do than Jackie Robinson.
At 2, I told my mom I was marrying Steve Garvey. At 12, I told her I was going to marry Eric Karros. Here they are.
Whoa! Hallelujah! Jana is rooting for the Cardinals! She said I converted her long ago and since Steve Garvey left it hasn't been the same. I guess I have the power to light up people's life!
Palm Desert's Steve Garvey throws out 1st pitch in Dodgers' win
Steve Garvey?! My favorite player when I was little! loved going to see him, Lopes, Cey, Baker and the rest of the old crew!
Did you miss Steve Garvey on the show? No worries... here ya go.
Did he just clown the Steve Garvey collection 😂😂
The Cucking Fardinals win 6-1 to advance to the NLCS. I'm thinking back to my favorite baseball player as a kid; Steve Garvey so I can channel my innocent childhood years when I was a Dodgers fan. Go Dodgers!! (This statement is set to expire as soon as the season is over)
I used to love Steve Garvey. When I was like 5 lol
once Steve Garvey went to the Padres, I was done with the Dodgers. I was like 5.
03 especially. A team built for a world title. Same for 84. I still hate Steve Garvey. And the bull's pre-Buckner moment.
Gotta admit, I was rooting for the bucs. Weinwright pitched a helluva game! From now on it is the Cards. Cannot stand the Dodgers (you can blame Steve Garvey for that many years ago). Please god, don't let the Dodgers play the Red Sox in the World Series. Never rooted for an American league team. Never will, but if that is the series lineup.I think I might take a vacation to an isolated island that has no TV, radio or any communication with the world! I will be praying harder.
Way to go Cardinals! Brought back good memories of the old Dodger days...Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, Dusty Baker...good memories
- She made it with Steve Garvey, a good ball player.

10/7/13: Dodgers legend Steve Garvey throws out the ceremonial first pitch before NLDS Game 4 at Dodger Stadium
Now's a good time to tune in if you're hoping to hear from legend Steve Garvey!!
Steve Garvey threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Dodger Stadium last night from first base. Love it.
Steve Garvey's first pitch is a brash prediction come true for Dodgers -
Is Steve Garvey sure it wasn't an angry ex-wife that did this?

Mr. SooHoo, no pics from last night of Eric Karros and Steve Garvey? my 2 all time fav Dodgers
What an awesome win for the Dodgers last night!!! Classic Fall baseball doesn't get much better than this: Steve Garvey, Eric Karros, and Steve Yeager in the pre-game ceremony; Vin Scully announcing on radio; Davey Lopes coaching at first base; Sandy Koufax, Tommy Lasorda, and other sports greats in the stands; Don Mattingly calling "the shots"; Clayton Kershaw on the mound; two homers from Carl Crawford in the 1st & 3rd. When we're behind 4 to 2 in the 8th, a stand-up double by rookie Yasiel Puig followed by a go-ahead homer by veteran Juan Uribe (The crowd goes WILD!!!). Then, in a tension-filled top of the 9th, Kenley Jansen shuts the Braves down with back-to-back-to-back strike outs. Whoo Hoo!!! Onto the NLCS!!! Go BLUE!
Here's how Steve Garvey rated last night's game:
Ran into Steve Garvey at the gym just a day after the huge NLDS win. It's a good Dodger week for me.
I'm still getting goosebumps! Steve Garvey even predicted the game that the Dodgers were gonna win :o
Hanley Ramirez has tied the LA record for the most extra-base hits in an Postseason series with 6 (Steve Garvey, 19…
Steve Garvey doesn't throw out that first pitch, the Dodgers don't win.

Steve Garvey's the kind of guy who would break his own windshield and blame it on rival fans.
So Steve Garvey called it last night, he said it was the last game of the series.
Such great news...Former Dodger says he is 'virtually clear' of cancer
“I am a bit bummed to not be there to see my dad Steve Garvey throw out 1st pitch
Don't follow baseball the way I used to as a youth - growing up in L.A... but how about those Dodgers... wow... been a long time to hear their name mentioned in the post season... Let's just say.. I can remember the Steve Garvey, Steve Yeager, Dusty Baker, Rick Monday, Davey Lopes, Ron Cey, Bill Russell, Manny Mota, Rick Rhoden, Don Sutton, Charlie Hough, Burt Hooten. Man.. the 70's what a time..
Glad to know you are healthy, Former Dodger Steve Garvey says he is 'virtually clear' of cancer
"Welcome to the final game of the NL Division Series" -Steve Garvey
My dad surprised with going to the dodger game today, in which they advanced to the next round awaiting either the cardinals or the pirates. I met Steve Garvey, which was awesome and I had a great day
Very happy for long time Dodgers fan and buddy Tom Hall. He's an original who took me to my first Dodgers game on July 29th, 2008. The Dodgers traded for Manny Ramirez, there was an earthquake out of the Chino Hills. We felt our car shake while sitting in traffic. Our pre-game meal was at Dan Tana's on Santa Monica Blvd. Think we saw Dino's ghost. Dodger Dog was tasty and the hometeam beat the Giants 2-0. Great day. Hey Now! I always rooted for the Dodgers back in the 70's because I hated the Yankees and I loved Ron Cey (WSU Cougar), Steve Garvey, Reggie Smith and Tommy "Bleed Dodger Blue" Lasorda. Icon Jackie Robinson had something to do with it as well. And of course I caught FernandoMania in the 80's. My favorite NL team growing up as a kid. I love L-A blaring on the Eagle's ipod I'm sure. Hey Now! Playing Saint Louis would bring back playoff memories.
The love trend was started with the teams you were on. Gracias Mr. Steve Garvey.
And Steve Garvey calls it! Nice stroke Uribe! Dodger Blue soaring high up here in NorCal!!!
So it was like my old Dodger times and great memories with Steve Garvey ,Eric Karros throwing the 1st pitch and Steve Yeager catching ! Great ending for Dodger Blue . Game was so exciting and had the Best night with my son and Brother and Patty . I am truly blessed to be able to experience tonight . Next series starts Friday - and Dodgers are ready !
Steve Garvey will always be remembered as a my favorite player!
Congratulates friends who are fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also thanks Fernando Valenzuela, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, Mike Scioscia, Steve Yeager, Dusty Baker, Steve Sax, Steve Howe, Manager Tommy Lasorda, & the rest of the "Go Blue Crew"! 1981, All over again!
What a game. We all left happy and on our way to the parking lot we took a picture with Steve Garvey. Congratulations to the Boys in Blue. GO BLUE
1) Steve Garvey made the comment, not Dodger fans collectively. 2) Forgive them for cheering
Steve Garvey playing for the Padres would be like Aaron Hernandez getting out and playing for the Wash Bullets or Houston Colt .45s
Trini in the outfield and Steve Garvey called it ! "... Las game of the NLDS" boom!
Steve Garvey had me riled up before the first pitch!!
Your hate for the Dodgers actually dates back to Steve Garvey and rest of the 80's Dodgers -- Sax, Honeycutt, etc.
I've been with the Dodgers since forever--since my parents took my brothers amd I to see them play...and I cheered for Fernando yes I don't need to say his last name he is a legend, Mike Marshall, Steve Garvey, Dusty Baker, Pedro Guerrero, and was madly in love with Steve Sax ❤...I've been through the torture. And what's goin on this year is makin my heart smile I bleed Dodger Blue
Hard to dislike the Dodgers. Classy franchise -- love Scully, the stadium, Lasorda, the red number. But not Steve Garvey. Not after tonight.
Whew it's over. Dodgers win. I've bled Dodger Blue from1977 since I got a reply from Steve Garvey to a fan letter I sent him. Enclosed, his autographed baseball card and a personalized letter. Also the Spokane Indians were the farm team of L.A. at that time. But once we got cable there were two things I would watch religiously. WTBS Super Station airing the Atlanta Braves and Saturday's wrestling at the Omni ( Tony Atlas vs Dusty Rhodes) those were the days. I'm stoked the Dodgers are going forward but some dissapointment also. The AL has the Mariners but that's a forelong conclusion come post season unfortunately.
Dam I can go back to 1981 Fernando Valenzuela was pitching And Steve Garvey gave the wining run.homerun ...
And Steve Garvey is probably the happiest guy in the stadium. Since he called his shot before the game that this was ending.
So exciting n nerve racking! Come on guys Let's do THIS! I wish Isaac was still here to finish watching the game with me. OH n Steve Garvey is there :-) I luv Stevo
Go Dodgers! It's been a long time. Always been my favorite baseball team. Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Bill Russell, Ron Cey, Dusty Baker, Rick Monday, Pedro Guerrero, Steve Yeager, Fernando Valenzuela. Mike Soscia, Kirk Gibson, Steve Sax, Today the team reminds me of those days. Thank you Magic Johnson
Thank you Steve Garvey for jinxing today's game! All you had to say wax, "it's time for Dodgers baseball!"
I'm sorry, but how ridiculous is it to say Hanley Ramirez in "pretty good company" because he is tied with Steve Garvey and Duke Snyder for the Dodgers franchise record for hits in a post season series? Really?
Steve Garvey has not change a bit! Wish I could say the same about me!
If the braves win I can't wait for the "Steve Garvey provided bulletin board material" angle...
Who's the ugly chick with Steve Garvey??
That looks like Steve Garvey, but where's his sweater?
I love when my MOM talks Dodger baseball... the best part is when she talks about her favorite Dodger player Steve Garvey and says thats why ahe named me Cindy after his wife . I was born to love the Dodgers!!!
Dodgers All Over Braves In Game 3 LOS ANGELES -- Teams that advance deep into October tend to have a narrative that adheres around them. In some cases, it's the team that gets hot in September and just keeps going. Or, it's the battle-tested team that struggles series after tough series and learns to adapt and survive. Some teams eke by with just enough offense by pitching the other team into submission. Other teams batter down fences long after their starter has left the game. Somebody asked catcher A.J. Ellis the other day to describe the Los Angeles Dodgers' identity. "Honestly," Ellis said, "I feel like it's talent." The Dodgers have thrown their talent at the Atlanta Braves in waves in this National League Division Series, and it's beginning to put them in an enviable position. The Dodgers took a two-games-to-one lead with Sunday night's 13-6 win over Atlanta. No sooner do the Braves emerge from the trials of facing Clayton Kershaw, the best pitcher on the planet, then they stumble into Zack Greinke, ...
Remembering my favorite starting lineup for the Dodgers back in the day : Fernando Valenzuela, Steve Garvey, Pedro Guerrero and Steve Yeager, Landreaux
Steve garvey just welcomed us to the last game of the NLDS lol that was great

I LOVE BASEBALL Not much could top sitting next to Casey Stengal watching Hank Aaron take batting practice in box seats owned by Ralph "This Is Your Life" Edwards (remember him?) at Dodger Stadium years ago, and nothing has. But Lord, there have been some wonderful splendiferous Zelig-meets-Forest Gump moments for which I shall remain forever grateful. Sitting in the dugout during a game while profiling the great but complicated first baseman Steve Garvey. Sharing a sift through baseball memorabilia with manager *** Williams and later player-turned Hall of Fame broadcaster (and lifelong Yogi Berra chum) Joe Garagiola while profiling each of them at their respective homes. Sitting in with "Trader Jack" McKeon, then manager of the San Diego Padres, as he talked privately with a San Diego stadium board as the Pads prepared for their first trip to the World Series? Come to think of it, maybe my best baseball moment came in 1958: after putting in for batboy of the old Kansas City A's along with half the kids . ...

The story of how Dodgers legend Steve Garvey became Yasiel Puig's campaign manager, leading the drive for the All-Star Game
WOW ! I'm in heaven. Beautiful night, full moon, Owl's stadium with Brad and the girls.Check out the ump (bottom center of the pic). This is our MVHS grad, Derek, who travels the U.S. working as an umpire and just got assigned to the Owls' League. He is the awesome son of Bernie (SFHS '80) and Jody Gonzales. My boys have played baseball with Bernie's for years, and it's exciting to see Derek doing so well! Also, how cool is it that we sat next to Steve Garvey? STEVE GARVEY! You older people know who he is, right? (My kids are a generation behind, so we had to google him.) That guy is a legend! ;)
There's a good photo of Ron Cey, Bill Russell, Davey Lopes and Steve Garvey on the sports page of the LA Times today. They were the LA Dodgers' infield from 1973 to 1981. The old farts still look pretty good.and Garvey still has those Popeye arms! (I can't get the pic until the Times puts it online tomorrow.)
Dodgers' infield of the 1970s had a lasting impact: Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes and Bill Russell played...
Watched the final outs of the Dodgers' first visit to the Yankees since 1981 World Series... I remember Tommy Lasorda's crew of Steve Garvey, Ron Cey, Pedro Guerrero, Steve Yeager, Fernando Valenzuela, Burt Hooton, Jerry Reuss, Steve Howe and Davey Lopes putting the whoopin' on the not-so mighty cast of Reggie Jackson, Dave Winfield, Craig Nettles, Willie Randolph, Ron Guidry, Goose Gossage and Bob Watson, managed by Lemon. George Frazier lost three games in the Series, tying the record set by a guy from the Black Sox who did it intentionally in the 1919 World Series. Interestingly, the Yankees traded Ron Davis to the Minnesota Twins (Remember, Mike Eidelbes?) and over the course of the next 10 seasons (1982-1991), the Twins enjoyed TWO World Championships to the Yankees ZERO championships-The Ron Davis Curse ended for the Yankees finally in 1996 when they defeated the Atlanta Braves in the World Series.
Not a big fan of interleague play in MLB, but it's fun watching my Dodgers take on the hated Yankees. I still remember the 81 World Series, when the Dodgers came from a 2-0 deficit to win 4 straight. That was the year of Fernando Mania and Pedro Guerrero's rookie year as well. It was the end of a great era of Dodger baseball, as Davey Lopes was traded away after the season to the A's to allow Steve Sax to come up to the big leagues. Then after the 1982 season Ron Cey was traded to the Cubs and Steve Garvey signed with the Padres.
Steve Garvey, a 10-time All-Star, deserved far better when it came to consideration for the Hall of Fame.
Today in 1973: Ron Cey, Bill Russell, Davey Lopes & Steve Garvey start together in the IF for the 1st time. h…
Like come on he met Steve Garvey and Willie Randolph.
Today in baseball history -1973 - The Los Angeles Dodgers infield of Steve Garvey (1B), Davey Lopes (2B), Ron Cey (3B) and Bill Russell (SS) plays together for the first time in a 16 - 3 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies at Veterans Stadium. The infield quartet will set a major league record for longevity by playing 8 1/2 years together
on this day in 1975, Steve Garvey, Davy lopes, Bill Russell and Ron CEO play their first game together. They go on to play 8/12 together as an infield. This is unheard of in ANY sport today!!!
I went shopping earlier today at JC Penney's,I bought one pair of shoes and two shirts. The cashier was a guy around my age so he's ringing up my things and as he gets to my seconds shirt and he notices that it's a Dodger shirt so he's telling me that he had met Steve Garvey, I'm like oh yeah that's awesome. The conversation continues as I'm Done paying for my items. My three old niece is like come on Anna we don't have time for that! Lol it was so funny
Watching Fernando Valenzuela, Steve Garvey, Sandy Koufax, Daryl strawberry, and a bunch of others play in the Old Timers game
BIGGEST PERSONALITIES IN BASEBALL HISTORY? Sitting here in an allergy-induced stupor watching the "Top 25 Personalities in Baseball History" on the MLB network. Tuned in at about 19 and watched it down to (Tommy Lasorda). Geared up to find out and after a commercial break, but the network instead cut in to join the Rangers-Blue Jays game half way through the top of the seventh inning. Weird. Anyway, they had included Mark Fidrych, Babe Ruth, Phil Rizzuto, Harry Carey, Dizzy Dean, Ricky Henderson, Ozzie Guillen, Earl Weaver, Bill Veeck, Manny Ramirez, George Steinbrenner, Bill Lee, Billy Martin, and I've missed a few. That leaves and open for speculation. What do you think? For pure outside-the-box oddness I'd nominate Bud Selig and Steve Garvey. . . .
I'm laughing at the post of my friend Ted Watkins in regards to kids not knowing who Marcus Garvey is. had to tell one yesterday that he was not the father of Steve Garvey! This is serious business when we expect our children to soar in life, and we've not provided a launching pad. If nothing than more than attending Booker T. Washington and Fredrick Douglass schools inspired me to find out who they were. Even had the privilege to visit they grave of Mr. Douglass, Mr. Kennedy, Dr. King, Ms. Tubman, and Ms. Susan B. Anthony. Some years ago, as a younger man, I stood in the very room where Anne Frank hid from the Nazis! We've got to give our youth a more positive point of reference from which to navigate through life. Can't know where you're going if you don't know where you're coming from! It's like getting lost in a revolving door!
Angels are Red, Dodgers are Blue, Mike Scioscia was a favorite... and Steve Garvey is too!!!

Nice article from the Desert Sun: QUESTION: What could be more nostalgic than Frank Sinatra singing “My Way”? ANSWER: Barbara Sinatra thanking a room full of celebrities for playing in every one of The Sinatra Invitational tournaments for 25 years. There have been changes, of course. It’s now the Frank Sinatra Starkey Hearing Technologies Celebrity Invitational, reflecting the enormous contributions by Tani and Bill Austin who brought not only their funding but their philanthropic inspiration to the cause. And the venue has changed to the high-energy Fantasy Springs Resort Casino where tribal chairman David Roosevelt and the Cabazon Band of Mission Indians have imbued every aspect of the tournament with impressive style and class. But it’s the things- especially the people- who haven’t changed a bit in 25 years, that made this night so special: Emcee Tom Dressen, Robert Wagner and Jill St. John, Pat Boone, William Devane, Vince Ferragamo, Rollie Fingers, Tom Flores, Steve Garvey, Gary Mule Deer ...

Steve Garvey should have listened to Joe Theismann!!!
In 1983, I was 9yrs old. Baseball was awesome.. I was a dodgers fan, my favorite player was Steve Garvey...Garvey got traded that year to the San Diego Padres, I was so angry that I turned on the Dodgers organization just as they had turned on Garvey and the rest is history... I've suffered through miserable seasons with the San Diego Padres, we had seasons of 100.losses, multiple times. My stubbornness got the best of me and I refused to come back to my first love, the Dodgers!! Well today is a great day, my friends as I have been pardoned by Dodgers hierarchy and welcomed back to the dodgers!!! Let's go dodgers, let's go!!
The "Captain America" nickname would be so much more awesome if it hadn't been given to Steve Garvey.

So if Dana Carvey, Steve Garvey, Steve Harvey and Marvin the Paranoid Android got their own sitcom series they could call it "Carvey, Garvey, Harvey and Marvie?"
I'm much more concerned about Steve Garvey's decision to participate than AJ or Cabrera. Jim Palmer's too, but Garvey was way creepier
Steve Garvey just announced that he is battling prostrate Cancer. Our thoughts are with him. 1st photo - The Padres hosted the 1978 All-Game and Steve Garvey was the game’s MVP. Here we are at the post game party. 2nd photo - I was fortunate enough to oversee the night Garvey retired from his MLB playing career in 1987. We had a ceremony and at the conclusion I drove him around the warning track so that he could say good-bye and thank you to the fans. Garvey's career with the Padres began in late December of 1982 when Padres President Ballard Smith came into my office and said to follow him. We walked back to his office and there was Steve Garvey who had declared free agency after the 1982 season. Ballard told me that we were about to sign Garvey to become a member of the Padres and he wanted to know if I would sign the contract as the witness. 30 minutes later we had a press conference announcing that signing to the sports world. After the conference I told Ballard that selecting me to sign Garv ...
INTERESTING ORIGINS OF THE “HIGH FIVE” Glenn Burke and Dusty Baker For decades, the "conventional wisdom" has been that the first high five occurred between Dusty Baker andGlenn Burke of the Los Angeles Dodgers on Oct. 2, 1977 in Dodger Stadium. It was the last day of the regular season, and Dodgers leftfielder Dusty Baker had just gone deep off the Astros' J.R. Richard. It was Baker's 30th home run, making the Dodgers the first team in history to have four sluggers -- Baker, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey and Reggie Smith -- with at least 30 homers each. It was a wild, triumphant moment and a good omen as the Dodgers headed to the playoffs. Burke, waiting on deck, thrust his hand enthusiastically over his head to greet his friend at the plate. Baker, not knowing what to do, smacked it. "His hand was up in the air, and he was arching way back," says Baker, now 62 and managing the Reds. "So I reached up and hit his hand. It seemed like the thing to do." After retiring from baseball, Burke, who was one ...

Nimba Mhaat shared Steve Beko's photo. "If the *** is not careful he will drink in all the poison of modern civilization and die from the effects of it." - Marcus Garvey. Here Fatou Bensouda, an " Afrikan ?" woman from Gambia who is married to a French white man who passes to himself as a Moroccan,but anyway,he is the new chief prosecutor of ICC so the so-called International Criminal Court "justice". She has been appointed by her Western masters to prosecute only great Afrikan leaders such as president Laurent GBAGBO who refuses to be the West's puppet. You know how "White" people do?! Put a *** Negresse in front by hiding behind her/him while they are pulling the strings when it comes to their wars against the Afrikan/" Black" people. Her and her others ICC "judges" are trying to do everything to maintain president GBAGBO in jail.
We just got an hour of Calisthenics in with Mum & Dad and then we went onto a 1hr free fitness class in the same park we train in. A Rastafarian brother called Steve goes there every Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday and gives FREE classes to the community. It was exhausting but excellent :-) We are AMPED to get on with our educational responsibilities today! We are doing Maths, English & our favourite mixed lesson "History & Hero of the Week" where we are learning more about the Honourable Marcus Mosiah Garvey. We hope all of you achieve your goals today :-) R&J
If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. - Marcus Mosiah Garvey
Just read a story on wood bats and someone named Steve Garvey was in it.
Ralph just ran out and exclaimed - "Sandra" (that's his serious voice) There are two ICONIC people in my life. And you know who they are! The first is Steve Garvey! And I jump in and say and then you have me? And he promptly corrects me and says NO! Then it's Pete Townsend! I've known these guys before you! And on Wednesday I am personally meeting Pete Townsend. He is so excited! I STILL can't believe I'm not one of them!

Well this evening is rapidly approaching. The house is getting cleaned and set up (my job). Dozens of fresh, homemade cinnamon rolls are being created in front of my eyes (Deb's handiwork). Soon Steve Errey will come to set up audio equipment (his gift to our community), artists will arrive (Joey Bell, Michelle Horel), musicians will arrive (Love Banshee, Richard Garvey, Jesse Maranger and Lydia Mainville). Our poet, Emily Buck, will wander in at some point, and THEN you will come! And we will have a wonderful evening of shared food, and words, and art, and music and it will be a time of joy and reflection and celebration. Mm!
Shared an elevator with Vinnie Del *** this morning and for that 30 second ride, my hair got 17% better.

I just watched the reality show "Pete Rose- hits & mrs."... it was so sad, seeing him explain to his step-kids why he hasn't made the Hall of Fame... Growing up, Pete Rose was my hero; he never complained about anything, gave everything he had, and left it all on the field. He was the last of the hard-nosed players from an age that is dead and gone. He set many records, and was one of the last players you ever saw that played and coached at the same time. He reminded me of another hero of mine, named Ty Cobb, and was cut from the same cloth as the player that I tried to emulate all my life, Steve Garvey, where u didn't complain, you played your best, and you took responsibility for your actions. He DESERVES to be in the Hall of Fame. He has EARNED the right. For those of you that don't know, the official reason he is banned, is because he admitted to gambling on basketball games (he most likely bet on baseball, too, but he said he never bet on his team, except one time, when he bet an opposing player that ...
Please give a poor, deserving, fan one of your magical guitars! A Les Paul or a flying v would be great! If you have a signature edition for one of my favorite artists or something natural, unfinished would be amazing. Or whatever you deem appropriate. In return I will advertise, promote, praise, and worship your company and phenomenal instruments. Or you could give me a position with the company so I could buy my very own! I am eternally grateful to you for making the instruments my favorite artists use to create the music my daughter and I love so much. Such as Steve Steve Sweney from ekoostik hookah, Jeff Tweedy from Wilco, Jim James from my My Morning Jacket, Chuck Chuck Garvey from moe., Grace Potter, from Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Brendan Baylis from Umphreys Mcgee, and tons of others. Eternally grateful, sincerely Samuel Ralstin
SOMETHING TO CATCH FOR EVERYONE RIGHT NOW The flathead are just starring everywhere right now and Paul Williams told me they got a flattie at Garvey Park around 40cm. That’s well upstream but not unusual these days. Flathead reports begin around the shallows in East Fremantle and Bicton, where some of the best fish have been taken consistently. Remember that if the blowfish are killing your soft plastics, try a hard lure like a Prawn Star which, worked slowly, is hard for them to resist. Claremont, Freshwater Bay, East Perth flats, Applecross and the South Perth flats are all holding flatties, with the Canning River seemingly even more full of them than usual. Bream have certainly been more active in the Canning River too, but there’s been more than a few big ones surfacing in photos. Jarrad and I were blitzed by several this week at a new spot we were trying with 4lb leaders but they just laughed at them. I even had a huge bustoff using a big Prawn Star so I’d be hitting bream hard with lures now u ...

Who are your favorite all-time area (in my case, formerly LA) athletes? They could be homegrown or professional. Here are/were mine: Roman Gabriel, Bernie Casey, Jack Snow, *** Bass, Lew Alcindor, Marques Johnson, Mike Warren, Bill Walton, Lynn Shackleford, Gary Beban (Go Bruins!); the Fearsome Foursome (Lamar Lundy, Merlin Olsen, Deacon Jones, and Roosevelt "Rosie" Greer), Jerry West, Elgin Baylor, Willie Shoemaker, Wilt the Stilt, Steve Patterson (UCLA again), Maury Wills, Jr. Gilliam, Willie Davis, Big D, Steve Garvey, Ronnie Cey, Davey Lopes, Dusty Baker (a Sacramento product), Reggie Smith, and Rick (Save the Flag on Independence Day) Monday, and, and, and, - the greatest of them all, but from Brooklyn - Sanford "Sandy" Koufax!!!
Who's the greatest Dodgers player ever?
I loved that era of baseball: The Orioles, The Yankees and those LA Dodgers. Oh how I loathed the Dodgers. Earl Weaver, Billy Martin, Reggie Jackson, Eddie Murray -- what personalities they had. But man, I could not stand Steve Garvey. I am no Red Sox fan but Fred Lynn was a bad *** crashing into walls. And Mickey Rivers was so electric racing down fly balls. All so alive for me today as another hero moves on -- his myth will grow each day that passes. Here's to you, Earl Weaver. Thanks for the memories.

Why in the *** is Dale Murphy not in the Hall of Fame?
The man who is not able to develop and use his mind is bound to be the slave of the other man who uses his mind. - Marcus Garvey
First of all I'd like to say I commend the Hall of Fame voters for not voting most of that list in on the first ballot..Even though Clemens and Bonds deserve to be in. Say what you will but those two had HOF numbers way before they started using PED's...But nobody gets in! really?!!! Pretty sure Tim Raines,Alan Trammell,Steve Garvey,Lee Smith,Luis Tiant, and Jack Morris belong and have waited long enough to get in. And let's not forget the best player not in the hall Pete Rose!
What is the best Chicago-area baseball card store who might buy some of my cards? I have about 100 cards that I want to sell, including cards of Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Steve Garvey, Sammy Sosa, Ozzie Smith, Tom Seaver, Orel Hershiser, and Carlton Fisk.
Heart? Rush? Donna Summer? Cut it out. That's like putting Steve Garvey, Sid Fernandez and Chili Davis into the baseball HOF.
Lap 128 under a red flag for a hard crash involving Daniel Hemric, Nelson Piquet Jr., Steve Garvey among others. Hemric hit the back stretch wall so jard it bent the steering wheel. Hunter Robbins is leading followed by John Nemechek, Tj Reaid, Grant Enifiger, and Kyle Busch is the top 5.

For Dominique via Teresa Hepner Biography: Soft-spoken Billy Williams let his bat do the talking for 18 seasons. His picture-perfect swing produced 2,711 hits, a .290 career average and 426 home runs. The six-time All-Star was the National League Rookie of the Year in 1961 and The Sporting News Player of the Year in 1972, when he led the league with a .333 batting average while also hitting 37 home runs and driving in 122 runs. He held the National League mark for consecutive games played (1,117) until it was surpassed by Steve Garvey. Inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1987 Did You Know: that while playing for San Antonio in the Texas League, Billy Williams was tutored by Hall of Fame hitting legend and Cubs coach Rogers Hornsby?
I am so looking forward to Saturday. going to go and meet the old school, World Series winning Los Angeles Dodgers! We are talking Steve Garvey and company! Great team, great time, and great company!
David Freese has 37 hits in 99 career postseason at-bats. He has already tied the major-league record for most hits by a player in his first 100 postseason at-bats, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. In 1978, both Thurman Munson and Steve Garvey reached 37 hits in their first 100 postseason at-bats.
After they showed the 92 Braves/Pirate game, Gm 7, MLB Network is showing Gm 4, 1977 World Series, Dodgers/Yankees. Geez, was there anyone in that game who isn't in the Hall of Fame, or at least seriously considered for it? Mickey Rivers, Reggie Jackson, Ron Cey, Steve Garvey, Lou Piniella, Bucky Dent, Chris Chambliss, Dusty Baker, Rick Rhoden, Howard Cosell, Keith Jackson and Tom Seaver, Reggie Smith, Tommy John, Lee Lacy, Ron Guidry, Thurman Munson, Sinatra in the stands, Davey Lopes, Tommy Lasorda, Billy Martin, Graig Nettles, Steve Yeager, Bill Russell, Willie Randolph ... and coaching third base for the Yankees -- Bobby Cox. (Ha! I knew there was a reason I didn't like him. That Yankee connection.)
I'm reminded of Steve Garvey's home run off Lee Smith in '84. Sports leaves powerful memories and deep scars. Mourning the Nats this morning.
In 1984 the Chicago Cubs held a 2 games to none lead against the San Diego Padres in the best of five NLCS. The series shifted away from Wrigley Field to Jack Murphy Stadium. The Padres would win the next three games thanks to the heroics of first baseman Steve Garvey and their closer, Goose Gossage. Back in that time only the four division (AL East, AL West, NL East, and NL West) winners qualified for the MLB playoffs. The East and West in each league alternated who had home field advantage in their championship series in the 2-3 format. Of course the Tigers crushed the Padres four games to one in the World Series. I hope the 2012 Tigers don't bow out of the playoffs like the Cubs did in '84 or the Reds did today against the Giants.
Among the most memorable walkoffs in MLB playoff history:Bill Mazeroski's World Series-ender in 1960; Carlton Fisk's ball waved fair at Fenway Park in Game 6 of the Series in 1975; Steve Garvey's Game 4 winner in the NLCS in 1984; the Kirk Gibson "I don't believe what I just saw" blast for the Dodgers in Game 1 of the World Series in 1988; Joe Carter's three-run walkoff in Toronto that won the World Series for the Blue Jays in 1993, and Aaron Boone's 12th-inning ALCS homer for the Yankees that sent the Bronx Bombers to the World Series in 2003...and now we add Raul ...pinchhitting for the highest paid and at one point the greatest active player in MLB..not one but TWO clutch homeruns. Ibanez has alos been a true professional hitter who goes up to the plate looking for a pitch to drive..first second ..whatever...and AROD's problem continues to be in the playoffs with the full spotlight on him..where he seems to be more concerned about neat his uniform looks..and not thinking about just hitting the *** b ...
Congrats to Miguel Cabrera. It has been 45 years since someone has accomplished the triple crown. Here is a list of some of the best all around hitters over the last 45 years... Feel free to add some of your own... Hank Aaron, Willie Stargel, George Brett, Robin Yount, Cal Ripken, Barry Bonds, A-Rod, Ryne Sandberg, Andre Dawson, Brooks Robinson, George Foster, Ken Griffey Jr, Joe Morgan, Mike Scmidt, Kirby Puckett, Dave Winfield, Joe Carter, Vladimer Guerroro, Pujols, Josh Hamilton, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, Adrian Gonzalez, Mark Grace(NOT), Matt Kemp, Dave Murphy, Steve Garvey, Matt Holiday, Dante Bichette(love that guy), Eric Davis, Hanley Ramirez, Don Mattingly. I am sure there are plenty of more to add to this list. I am trying to think of all around hitters, average, power, and rbi's. Congrats again to Miguel Cabrera!
Love the passage below from the great Charles Pierce of Grantland and Esquire. He's writing about being a Red Sox fan and how Red Sox Nation needed a horrible season like the one that is just coming to a close. But really isn't this every one of us, those of us who are in it to for the long haul, whose allegiance to one team and one team only dates back to when we were eight or nine years old and we should've known better and turned frontrunner and had a new "favorite" team each year, depending on the standings? You can feel the old, cranky curmudgeon in every line Charlie Pierce writes here. (You can also feel a little Bill "Spaceman" Lee in this passage, too.) And, you can also feel the tragic love of knowing that ugly or beautiful, joyously successful or hopelessly unsuccessful, whether it's Gil Hodges or Steve Garvey or ahem, James Loney, you're forced to ride shotgun with your team for the rest of your life: "So, I rather enjoyed the second half of this Red Sox season. I was reminded of all the after ...

To my friend, Lee Sullins, I feel your pain on the Pirates. However: try being a Cubs fan. My highlights include Steve Garvey, Steve Bartman, and Jack Clark single handedly dashing my hopes of ever seeing my Cubbies n the World Series. Stretch, as you're lamenting your Bucs, remember..."We are family or your years with Will Stargell and Roberto Clemente. At least you've seen them in the Series. I'm beginning to think I'll never see my Cubbies there.
it was a pretty happening place at the time. I met Pete Shelley in there and Steve Garvey, Tony Wilson was always in there too x

Tommy Lasorda gave me the ball. My mother was friends with I am not going to name the guys last name but he was in Jerrerson Airplane and now still in Hot Tuna with the guys mother.
