The Paraguay Dodgers Organization

The Paraguay Dodgers Organization

The Paraguay Dodgers Organization is comprised of largely RPCVs from Paraguay and their families and friends who share a passion for Paraguay, it's people, international development, education, agriculture, health, the environment, sports in general, and softball in particular. They are also, without exception, unusually talented, intelligent, good looking, and surprisingly humble.

These pages will give you an idea of what we mean.

Washington DC jumps ahead

In the voting for the site of the next Dodger reunion, our nation's capital took a significant lead during the month of December. Analysts believe it's because John McCloskey moved here from Asuncion over the summer. Some, particularly those from Austin, complain that the ballot is confusing. Others suspect fraud and fuzzy math. One voter says he attempted to vote for Schenectady, NY, and ended up
voting for Washington.

"That really sucks" he was quoted as saying.

Many of the potential cities have been lobbying the Paraguay Dodger Reunion Site Selection Comittee, but none more than Washington, DC.

"It would definately give us an oportunity to showcase the city", said mayor Anthony Williams in a recent Washington Post interview, "and show Major League Baseball that we can support a major league team." The Nation's capital has been without a baseball team since the Senators left long ago, and in recent years has been steping up it's efforts to capture a major league franchise.

According to inside sources, however, the election is not over.

"When you look at the percentages" said the self-proclaimed Vote Counter and Senior Ellection Official Brian Padden, "It looks like a big lead, but in actual votes, DC is only winning by 3 votes."

And the polls are still open for "as long as we want them to be" he said.
"And we'll count the votes as many times as we want" added self-proclaimed Deputy Senior Ellection Official Pablo Davis, "until we get the right results.

So there's still time to vote. Every vote counts, sometimes more than once. Click here to see the details and to vote again.

And again.


We've re-engineered the Dodger site in an effort to make it quicker, faster and less slow. We are also trying to reduce and lessen any redundancy and repetativeness.

We reduced the size of the photos on the other pages (for added speed) and will be setting them up so that when you "Click" on them, you'll see the larger version of the photo. Or we might just set them up so when you "Click" on them nothing will happen. Whichever turns out to be easier.

Those of you who have visited the site before will notice the previous "Photo of the Month" is smaller, and closer to the Site Name. That is because there is a movement to have the photo become the official Paraguay Dodgers Logo. The Board of Directors hasn't decided on an Offical Logo yet--in fact, they've never even thought about a Logo because they actually have lives, complete with families and successfull carreers that entail feeding the world, protecting the environment, and promoting world peace. Still, this Photo is likely to become the official Paraguay Dodger Logo since it is of Reggie, who is considered by many to be a Paraguay Dodger Icon.

Click on the Logo and you'll see a full-size version.

Or maybe nothing will happen.

Electronic Information Page
of the Paraguay Dodgers

Created June 16, 1962

Prepared in anticipation of future tedchnology that might make this information available to people from other cities and even countries, who will "connect" via a network comprised of several computers linked together by cables and phone lines.

We know it sounds crazy, but we know it will happen, and we want to be ready for when it does.
