David Vassegh isn’t kidding about his kids.
“Some of the players can’t believe it when I tell them I’m a dad,” he said the other day.
The 4-year-old daughter Adriana and 1 1/2-year-old son Joseph son of the KLAC-AM (570) Dodgers reporter/”Dodger Talk” co-host get quality time in the mornings before he heads off to Dodger Stadium each afternoon.
When he’s on the road, like today’s Father’s Day, they learn to make it work with his wife, Tessa.
“Doing this last 6 years, you really do have to have an understanding, loving and supporting wife to handle things when I’m at work,” said Vassegh, who has covered every Dodgers game since the start of the 2012 season. “We reassess this work-and-personal life balance every year, and if she’s at a point where she feels the cons outweigh the pros, I support my family and they’re No. 1. Baseball is my No. 1 sport. But I can’t see myself missing soccer games on weekends or big events in their lives. I take a lot of pride in never having missed a Dodgers game, but that’s all ingrained in me.”
