San Pedro native Nancy Bea Hefley has been the Dodger organist since 1988. Do you get to watch the game? I have to. I get my cues off the game. One of the funniest times was when a fellow on the other team lost count of the outs. (I don't ever do things against our players.) He was on first and he thought there were just two outs. So he ran to second. Then he ran to third. Then everyone's walking off the field. And he realized it was the third out.

The Dodgers are not broke. Do not believe the message coming from Monday's legal maneuverings. Do not get sucked into the horror of the word "bankruptcy," or the doom associated with their owner declaring it. The Dodgers are not broke. It is Frank McCourt who is broke. His schemes are broke. His understanding of this franchise is broke. His ties to Los Angeles are broke. The Dodgers are not broke. The Dodgers are bigger than broke. The Dodgers pulse too deeply through a city's soul to ever be broke.

Nancy Hefley looks like the meek lady behind you in the supermarket checkout line unloading a week's worth of groceries for the family. Tall and trim, her brown hair cut short and neat, butterfly-shaped glasses riding the bridge of her nose, Hefley hardly looks the part of a musician who gets standing ovations 80 nights a year from crowds that sometimes top 50,000.

Tall and trim, her brown hair cut short and neat, butterfly-shaped glasses riding the bridge of her nose, she hardly looks the part of a musician who gets standing ovations 80 nights a year from crowds that average nearly 40,000 and often top 50,000.

Randy Lewis' feature on Dodger Stadium organist Nancy Hefley ("Career Takes Her Out to Ballgame a Lot," Calendar, Sept. 24) was a welcome piece of light reading. It was almost as relentlessly upbeat as the cheerful lady in the Dodgers' music chair, but one piece of history must be corrected: Ms. Hefley is the fifth person to hold the key position since the Dodgers moved west, after Bob Mitchell, Chauncey Haines, Don Beamsley and Helen (the Iron Woman) Dell, who is without question the Lou Gehrig of ballpark organists.

Re "50 Ways to Love Your Dodgers" [March 27]: As they say in Brooklyn, waddaya nuts? How could you leave Nancy Bea Hefley, the wonderful Dodger organist, off your list? She is part of what makes going to the ballpark so terrific. Apologies to Vin, but he provides the voice-over; Nancy Bea provides the soundtrack to the summer night. Karen A. Fagin Studio City

The Dodgers love to boast that Russell Martin leads all major league catchers in innings and games caught. Instead they should boast that Grady Little has lost his mind. Having your catcher start nine out of every 10 games is not something to boast of, it's something to be questioned, especially with a very capable backup in Mike Lieberthal.

Nancy Hefley, the organist at Dodger Stadium, has traditionally greeted Montreal pitcher Dennis Martinez with a chorus of a little-known song entitled "Managua, Nicaragua" before each of his starts. Problem is, Martinez is from Granada, a city about 30 miles south of Managua. Thirty miles on a map, that is. In the eyes of many Nicaraguans, the cities are worlds apart, which is why Martinez complained to one of the Dodgers' Spanish-language radio broadcasters.

Amid the proselytizing platitudes of "Bandwagon" Bill Plaschke and the bullying bombast of T.J. Simers, how refreshing it is to learn that The Times employs an unabashed pagan in Kurt Streeter. Now that we know his fealty to the God of Baseball, maybe he could tell us what the Basketball God really thinks of Kobe, and why the Golf God rewards Tiger while forsaking Phil. Rhys Thomas Van Nuys Kurt Streeter's column ("Pleading to the Big Dodger in the Sky," June 15), wonders why the Baseball Gods have forsaken the Dodgers.
