They Won't Be Able to Replace Roxie

March 27, 2004

I just read the touching story by Bill Plaschke about the passing of Roxie Campanella [March 23]. I have been an usher at Dodger Stadium for the past five years. During this time, it has been my distinct pleasure to not only meet this positive, upbeat, and inspirational lady, but to have had numerous discussions with her about Roy, the Dodgers, baseball, and best of all, life in general.

She came not only to enjoy the game but to spread her warmth with all of us. Despite the decline in health, Roxie would always arrive with her smile and her gentle voice. She would typically stay until the last out was recorded because (as she would often tell me), "You never know what will happen in baseball."
