to a select future game. To redeem their July 3 ticket for a free Reserve Level
Ticket, fans can visit the Advance Ticket windows in Lot P starting July 5
during normal business hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
Additionally, 175 lucky fans in attendance will
be chosen at random to participate in the pre-game ceremony and join Dodger
Owner Frank McCourt and Hall of Fame Dodger Manager Tommy Lasorda on the field.
The Dodgers also will select a fan at the turnstiles that evening to represent
all 175 million fans and this person will be invited to throw out the
ceremonial first pitch. And, eight fans in attendance will be invited to
“take the field” during the pre-game ceremony. The celebration will
continue throughout the stadium as Dodger players and legends will be throwing
and handing out 175 commemorative baseballs at the start of the game.
