First start for Maddux as a Dodger @ Dodger Stadium

For those of you still weeping in your Old Styles, Hamms, Pabsts or Falstaffs, I thought I would inform you that Los Angeles is abuzz today about Maddux's first start as Los Angeles Dodger tonight against the Rockies.

In today's paper Greg reminisced about his first MLB he attended at Dodger Stadium.  Here are a few selected quotes:

"I was 5 or 6 years", Maddux said.  "I sat out there by the left-field foul pole and one of the (Cincinnatti) Reds threw me a ball in batting practice"

"I always loved playing here as a visiting player," Maddux said Monday.  Maddux, a Las Vegas native, spent time at Dodger Stadium in his youth because his father was stationed at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County.

Talking about the trade to LA Maddux said, "To me (the trade) was like spring training all over again, or like Opening Day.  Things weren't going as well as we would have liked in Chicago, but one plane ride and you're back in it."
