Congratulate Russell Nathan Coltrane Jeanson Martin, Jr.

One thing that we didn’t really say much about recently was the All-Star Game.  Despite the outcome, it was an incredible one to watch and it was great to see everyone’s favorite catcher, Russell Martin, have some great moments (i.e. getting his first All-Star game hit in the 9th against Mariano Rivera, making a great tag at the plate in extra innings to help save the game, etc.).

So, as I was going through the official Inside The Dodgers site, I find this from Josh Rawitch…

We got a nice call from a longtime Dodger fan, Dr. Bob Filep, who was so impressed with the way Russell played during the All-Star Game, he wanted a forum where fans could express their gratitude and congratulations to him. So, what better way than right here, where so many of you visit regularly already?

Feel free to leave your congratulatory messages here for Russell and I’ll pass along the stack when I see him next week. While I can’t make it a habit of bringing messages to the players every day or my entire day would be spending doing so, I think this is a special occasion and he deserves to know what you all think…

Congratulate Russell.
