2011 csd Custom – Tracy Woodson
Tracy is the manager for the Valparaiso Crusaders. He is probably more noted though for his time with the Dodgers. He was part of that magical ’88 team that won the World Series. After spending some time managing in the minors he is now guiding the young men in Valpo.
I took this picture before game one of a doubleheader as Tracy was waiting to make the lineup exchange. Tracy seemed calm and relaxed at this point, but it wasn’t very long into the game before he was yelling obscenities at the home plate umpire that I could hear very well behind third base. I would like to remember the happy times though so I chose this picture from before the game. Once the games started there was not too much for Woodson to be happy about. I picked the ’88 Donruss card for the back of this card because of the title team he was part of that year.
