the dodgers shop trader joe's in pasadena
i recently noticed that the dodgers caravan would be coming through pasadena. the idea was that several current and former dodgers would have 30 seconds to fill a grocery cart with as many items as they could possibly fit in. each cart would then be donated to the los angeles food bank.
i had no idea what to expect, but i was pleasantly surprised to find that although the store was teaming with dodger fans when i arrived, there was still plenty of room for me and my camera. it was pretty interesting to see local baseball legends running around in a grocery store. it was also amazing to see how willing they were to hang out for a little while after the event to chat with fans and pose for pictures.
all in all, a very fun afternoon. if you'd like to see more photos and a rundown of the event, check out the facebook album i created, right here.
