Panoramic View in Los Angeles
The Rob Arra Collection
Wednesday, September 26, 2001. In Los Angeles, as with all over the country, baseball was helping heal America from the horrors of September 11. Although the Dodgers were out of the playoff chase, over 49,000 fans arrived (mostly late...) at Chavez Ravine on a beautiful fall evening to push the season's attendance over 3,000,000, and to view the latest installment of the ancient Dodgers-Giants rivalry. With San Francisco clinging to playoff dreams, and with Barry Bonds only three Home Runs away from Mark McGwire's record, it was a great chance to boo the opposition and play spoiler! In this poster, we see Barry at the plate in the third inning of a 1-1 tie. With the count at 1-0, two out and no one on base, this may have be his best chance to get a pitch to hit. As the crowd watches breathlessly and starter Terry Mulholland delivers, SNAP! The moment is preserved for all-time, and is now available for your wall!
To every Dodger fan's delight, Barry did not go deep in this game, and he ended the season 4-for-35 with only one HR at Dodger Stadium in 2001. And although the Dodgers did blow a ninth-inning lead to lose this game, the Giants ended up falling short in their playoff run!
With photographer Rob Arra's perfect panoramic technique, everything in this beautiful print is in perfect focus, making you feel like you are actually there, at the game, watching the Dodgers battle the Giants on a perfect night in the valley. From the fans in the stands, to the action on the field, to the scoreboards and light towers, to the outfield Wall-of-Fame, it's all here! This beautiful print deserves a nice frame and a prominent space on the wall of your home or office.
