It was the end of a shift, September, 2016 season.
I had thought Mr. Nelson retired from the Stadium following an accident but I was wrong.
To my surprise and joy- Ron was back!
Mr. Nelson had joined our ranks of Concession workers, wiping down condiment carts and
tiding-up after messy fans. This was my final meeting with him. I was amazed as heck to find him
so energetic, smiling, the Ronald, I know and love. He was back, at least for one more game out
of the thousands of games he has dedicated his services over the years, going back to the year the
Dodgers arrived to Los Angeles in 1957.
My friend Ronald Nelson, the Dodger Vendor Extraordinaire.
It was short, but sweet.
