Rally Granny, 85, dishes on flashing Dodgers Stadium crowd

Betty True, 85, has become a certified celebrity thanks to her “risqué” antics at a Los Angeles Dodgers game last month. And it’s clear the Dodgers superfan is taking her new fame in stride with a wonderful sense of humor.

True, now famously known as Rally Granny — a moniker bestowed upon her by Dodgers rookie Cody Bellinger — was caught on the Dodgers Stadium video board flashing the crowd — well, briefly lifting her Dodger Blue shirt and exposing her brassiere — much to the delight of the fans in attendance at the July 8 game.

Of course, footage of Rally Granny’s daring demonstration hit the Internet.

And the rest, as they say, is history. And True has since showcased her delightful “devil may-care” outlook on life in a fascinating column from The Los Angeles Times’ Bill Plaschke.

“I’d already been on the camera earlier and all I got to do is raise my arms and show my underarm dangle,” True said of her outrageous performance, via a video posted in the column. “And by golly when they locked in on me again I thought, ‘Well this is the time to show my cruising moves,’ which is a bunch of bumping and grinding, and that’s all I know how to do. I can’t dance worth a damn.

“And then the crowd was going crazy and so I figured I’ll just really give ’em a little treat here and I just flashed them.”

At the time of the column, the Dodgers had posted a 21-3 record since Rally Granny’s celebrated antics.

True apparently has toned down her act just a bit since her much ballyhooed Dodger Stadium debut. She apparently teased the crowd at a recent Dodgers game with a repeat performance. Only this time, when she lifted her shirt — which bore her “Rally Granny” moniker — a Dodgers shirt lied beneath.

“This is so much fun, I’m just getting such a kick out of making people laugh, making them happy,” she said. “I’m carrying on.”

To say the least. Rally Granny, everyone.
