Dodger pitcher appears at SVdP's Store in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Dodger pitcher Javy Guerra signed autographs and posed for photos with fans this past Saturday at the Society's Thrift Store in Los Angeles.  Fans of all ages enjoyed meeting the Dodger reliever.  One girl presented Javy with a picture she had colored, while another girl, around 2, displayed her mighty swing for Javy.

Due to Father's Day the following day, a huge sale was also in place for the shoppers on Saturday.  Proceeds from the store revenue helps fund the Society's various local charitable programs for children and families.

Thank you, Javy, for your kindness.  Fellow Dodger Dee Gordon was originally scheduled to appear, but couldn't make it.  Here are some photos from Javy's appearance.
