1988 World Series Champions
Today I got to meet 5 members of the 1988 World Series Championship team. First up was Mike Marshall. It’s Mike Marshall the hitter. Not to get confused by Mike Marshall the pitcher. Mike had a productive 11 year career. Playing mostly with the Dodgers, he was selected to the All-Star game in 1984 and won a World Series ring in 1988 Next up was Franklin Stubbs. He had a 10 year Major League Career. He played his first 6 seasons with the Dodgers. Was one of the key players in helping the Dodgers win the Championship. Next up was Dave Anderson. He had a 10 year Career. Playing 8 seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He won a World Series ring in 1988 Before Kirk Gibson hit his famous Home Run, Mike Davis was At-bat. Dennis Eckersley walked him and the rest is history. Gibson hits the magical homer. Everyone forgets about Davis. He had a 10 year career. Playing his first 8 with the Oakland A’s and the last 2 with the Dodgers. Finally the last guy I got to meet was Rick Dempsey. He had a great career playing with several teams. He will always be remembered as a Baltimore Oriole but the Dodgers will never forget him. He won the World Series MVP with the Orioles in 1983 and won a World Series ring with the Dodgers in 1988 He played in 24 seasons. It was great meeting all these guys.
