Roger Owens has been selling and pitching peanuts at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum since Dodger Stadium opened in 1962 and before that.
Owens has thrown peanuts at the presidential inauguration ceremonies, on The Tonight Show, and in two films and three television series in which he has always played the same role: peanut seller. His wedding guests included Tom Bradley, then Mayor of Los Angeles, and Dodgers’ Hall of Fame pitcher Don Sutton.
But Owens can’t throw the bag at you anymore. When fans asked why he couldn’t toss his peanuts anymore, Owens said he was told by Levy Restaurants, which runs the stadium concessions, the decision was made for fan safety. That’s what fans who contacted The Times said Owens told them.
