Finally, some refreshing news we can all use about the Los Angeles Dodgers playing baseball again. Seriously – fast forward your mind to the spring – March 26 to be exact. By then the winter months will be in our wake.
Of course the Los Angeles Dodgers will open up their 2020 regular season at home like the starlet franchise they are. They will welcome the San Francisco Giants managed by Gabe Kapler. More important, the game will be broadcast on ESPN; and Joe Davis and Orel Hershiser will be on the call.
Indeed, this news comes from Davis’ personal twitter today and should bring all who see it a lot of delight.
ESPN’s Opening Day broadcast won’t be exclusive. @OrelHershiser @alannarizzo and I will be there after all.

In the past, ESPN has used a broadcast team of Jessica Mendoza, Alex Rodriguez, and Matt Vasgersian. However for this occasion, Davis says that the broadcast isn’t exclusive. Therefore, Dodgers fans will get to enjoy the broadcast tandem affectionately known as ‘JoRel’.
While we are a few years removed from the legend himself Vin Scully, we remain in good hands with a pair of individuals like Davis and Hershiser who love what they do and appreciate the rabid fan base of the Dodgers.
Finally, how refreshing is it to think about the Dodgers playing meaningful baseball again? With all the storylines being about sign-stealing and who the team might sign, this news comes in handy as something positive we can all look forward to. Obviously, that’s what life is all about; looking forward to a big event.
In essence, that’s what makes Opening Day so special. It’s a new beginning, and the start of the climb back up the inevitable hill. Now, all of us get to share it with Joe Davis and Orel Hershiser. Without question, it never should have been any other way.
