It was once again Burbank Night at Dodger Stadium and members of the City Council and other Burbankers were on hand for the ceremonial first pitch and stayed for the game which saw the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks 4-3.  Mayor Jess Talamantes got the call to take the bump, which he did in the jersey that his brother made for him which featured the name ‘Burbank’ and the number 100.  Dave Golonski  got behind the dish to catch the pill.  Although the radar gun had still not been turned on, eye-witness accounts had the Mayor in the high 80’s with a two-seem fastball that backed up!
