Orlando Hudson put on a show at Dodger Stadium yesterday, thrilling the largest ever crowd at Chavez Ravine by hitting for the cycle. One of the rarest feats in baseball, the last Dodger to hit for the cycle was Claremont Men's College and Harvard High School graduate Wes Parker in 1970. The all time most cycles by one player was Brooklyn Dodgers great Babe Herman.

Tonight at the Lakers game, Orlando talked about his love and appreciation for Jackie Robinson, and for the Dodgers and their fans. Saying he always loved Dodger fans even when he was playing for opposing teams, the O Dog implied that he had always wanted to be a Dodger and loved the appreciation the fans gave him on Monday's incredible 11-1 slaughtering of our northern rivals.

Welcome to LA, Orlando, from Dodger fans and TACO!!
