Dodgers fans take over Yankee Stadium with their own roll call

Big League Stew

Los Angeles Dodgers fans are feeling good about their team right now. How good? Good enough to roll right into Yankee Stadium and lift New York’s Bleacher Creatures’ tradition in plain sight.

That’s right. A large contingent of Dodgers fan took over a few sections in left field Monday night, unfurled a massive flag and did their own roll call.

If you’re not familiar with the roll call, it’s pretty simple. A group of fans chant a player’s name until he acknowledges the crowd. Then they move onto the next player until the entire starting lineup has been recognized. It’s long been the calling card of the Bleacher Creatures’ that sit in the right field bleachers at Yankee Stadium, but on this day the Dodgers faithful showed two can share the domain.

It’s only the second time since interleague play began in 1997 that the Dodgers have made the trip to the Bronx, so you can’t blame the fans for being excited, especially for the ones that live in New York and are used to going to Citi Field. It does appear, though, that there were a number of reinforcements that made their way from Los Angeles. There’s a group called Pantone 294 – that’s the name within the standardized color matching system for Dodger Blue – that organizes trip to Dodgers road games and promises to bring the noise.

They certainly got everyone’s attention in this one, an 8-2 win for the Dodgers so there was a lot to cheer about, and we look forward to seeing what they have in store for the rest of the series.
