Charley Steiner talks Dodgers, Kings and NY Rangers

As reported previously on MayorsManor, a few days after the Kings won the Stanley Cup they took their new hardware to Dodger Stadium for a pre-game ceremony that included a photo-op with the Dodgers and Angels – as well as one of the largest ‘first pitch’ ceremonies you will ever see.  Video from all the fun, including Matt Greene dressing up in full Dodger gear and staying in the dugout when the game started, can be viewed here.

During batting practice that night we also caught up with the radio voice of the Dodgers, Charley Steiner. He’s a native New Yorker and shared some stories about growing up a Rangers fan and attending games at the old Madison Square Garden, in addition to commenting on this year’s Kings and Dodgers teams. Take a look…

The Don Mattingly interview on MayorsManor reference in the video can be found here. So far, he’s half right.  The Kings did their part and won a championship.  Can the Dodgers do the same this year?

As for the comment about Tommy Lasorda, the legendary baseball ambassador was a minor league pitcher playing in Montreal back in the mid-50′s.  In multiple interviews – including one he did for MayorsManor – he claims Hall of Fame goaltender Jacques Plante (the first goalie to wear a mask in an NHL game) was sketching out designs for the mask on a table cloth one night when they were having dinner on St. Catherine’s street in Montreal.  The common link was Lasorda’s knowledge of catchers masks and the infamous dinner supposedly took place several years before Plante debuted his goalie mask.

Back to more recent times, for interviews with Matt Kemp, James Loney, Tony Gwynn, etc. taking about baseball and the Kings, check out the articles linked below.
