June 6, 2013, will forever be remembered in Dodgers history as the day that #66, Yasiel Puig hit his first career grand slam in only his 4th MLB start to carry the Dodgers to a 5-0 win over the Atlanta Braves.
Last night, will be one of those game that I will never forget. I was there when Manny Ramirez hit a grand slam on his bobblehead night, when Mark Loretta got the game winning hit against the Cardinals and more recently when Yasiel Puig made his amazing throw from the right field warning track. And last night is another game that I will stored in my best Dodger Stadium memories. The atmosphere was just amazing! Everyone in the stadium was thinking grand slam and when he hit it, the whole stadium went nuts for at least 5 minutes.
Vin Scully summed it up best when he said,
“I have learned over the years that there comes a rare and precious moment when there is absolutely nothing better than silence, nothing better, to be absolutely speechless to sum up the situation. And that was the moment…He’s done it again. Que Viva Cuba. Viva Yasiel.”
