Joe Garvey dies at age 81

Steve Garvey’s father, you may recall, was the Dodgers’ spring-training bus driver, which led to Steve becoming the team’s bat boy as a youngster before he grew up and became the Dodgers’ star first baseman. Ken Gurnick had the story last night, along with some quotes from Steve Garvey about his dad. Here is the link:

    Emma, I don’t know the answer to your second question, and there is no one here to ask at the moment. As for your first question, it’s a long way, every bit of 2 1/2 hours, and it’s a LONG 2 1/2 hours, a whole lot of nothing other than the occasional gas station exit. Think L.A. to Phoenix, only shorter.
