What Happened at FAC’s 7th Annual Filipino Heritage Dodgers Night?

FilAm Creative hosted their 7th Annual Filipino Heritage Dodgers Night earlier tonight at Dodger Stadium. Our annual social gathering that always sells out!  The Los Angeles Dodgers currently holds its second place position with seven games behind the first place San Francisco Giants in the National League West’s Major League Baseball standings. Tonight’s game with Milwaukee is essential after the Blue Team lost to the Brewers yesterday Thursday in this four-game series at home.

Currently tied at 2-2 in the eigth inning, earlier this afternoon, 100 FAC members and their friends trickled in and joined up with our FAC Staff at the bleachers seconds away from the All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion!  All you can eat like the Pinoy Dog: a quarter-pound, all-beef hot dog topped with diced spam, pineapple, Sabrett’s onions, and chicharrones provided by Levy’s Restaurant.  And, you can down all that with San Miguel Beer!  Also available at the All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion are unlimited Dodger Dogs (yummy!), nachos, popcorn, peanuts, soft drinks and water!

Did we say the event is sold out?

It is now the ninth inning and the Dodgers are still tied at 2 with the Brewers!  Nail-biting moments as each play is made by both teams while the innings continue forward.  We asked ourselves… Will the boys in blue break the tie before going into extra innings?

To break the monotony, we sang the Dodgers war song (below).

All of a sudden, in the tenth inning with the bases-loaded with one out, Justin Turner follows up his two home runs before reaching the seventh inning when he hits a single that gave the the Dodgers a 3-2 walk-off win over the Brewers (with two runs, twelve hits and one error).  The boys in blue won tonight with two games a piece in this four game series.  The Dodgers hope to win the next two games and lessen the lead with the Giants.

100+ FilAm Creative members and supporters represented at tonight’s 7th Annual Filipino Heritage Dodgers Night. THANK YOU EVERYONE for supporting FAC, our events and programs!  Now viewing the Friday Night Fireworks presented by Denny’s — also part of our Ticket Package — presented in old skool ’80s & ’90s hip hop music (below).
