Monrovia teen earns ticket to World Series by painting Dodger logos on lawns

MONROVIA, Calif. (KABC) -- They are turning Dodger Blue into green.

Two Monrovia brothers have been painting Dodger signs on neighborhood lawns as a business, and now one of them has saved enough money to pay for a trip to the World Series.

It is something Zachary Menlove says he has always dreamed of.

"I've never been to the big game, and I saved my money," he said.

It wasn't cheap, the tickets alone were over $600 each, but Zachary and his dad will be in Arlington, Texas for Game 3.

What started as an April Fool's Day prank has turned into a lucrative business for two teen brothers from Monrovia: Spray-painting the logos of SoCal sports teams onto front lawns.



His brother Joshua is saving his money.

He can't believe how big their sign business has become.

"We've done a lot of signs, every weekend we are busy. It's crazy, but good at the same time."

The two brothers started their lawn-painting business earlier this year. It started at first as an April Fool's Day prank, painting a Dodgers logo on the lawn of a family member who roots for the Angels.

Neighbors spotted it, requested their own and it soon turned into a business, with options available for the Lakers, Rams and other Los Angeles teams.

And the boys think the World Series is just a start. They are planning to continue this as a year-round business.
