Chris Arriola 1972 - 2015
Our camp and Dodgertown West family remembered veteran and camp Hall of Fame member Chris Arriola on Saturday, January 23. Chris passed away after a 3-year battle with cancer.
Chris was remember with stories, poems, photos and just the presence of many of his fellow camp vets all decked out in their jerseys. Vets came from all over, East Coast, Mid West, South and West Coast to honor him and share stories about him. A true tribute.
Chris had a zest for life and everything Dodgers. A veteran of 14 Dodgers and LADABC camps, a Camp Hall of Fame inductee, Chris was a competitor in the truest sense of the word. But more than being an exceptional player, he was an extraordinary man and friend.
Caring and generous, he loved his family and friends. He enjoyed spending Spring Training at his home away from home at Camelback Ranch and the door was always open to his family and friends so they could share his love of the Dodgers.
