(East Los Angeles, CA) [From The Editor’s Desk]: The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to be the biggest and best trendsetters for “game-day” fans in Major league Baseball (MLB) due to their creative and innovative ways of attracting new fans to come out to the Stadium. Due to the top-flight and attractiveness of the special premiums, more than 47,000 fans customarily arrive to claim their game-day promotion with the echoing in their hearts and minds of the late and great, Vince Scully’s immortal broadcast sign-on of… “It’s time for Dodgers baseball!!”
And so, it’s that time once again to bring all of our longtime, and I must now say, our newest Dodger fans, the promotional “game-day” line-up to the latest seven game home-stand beginning on Monday, August 28th, through August 30th against the Diamondbacks, and then followed by the Thursday, August 31st through Sunday, September 3rd, against the Atlanta Braves.
Bookmark this story on your devices and you will have the full home-stand with its many and fantastic promotions for you at your choice of games to attend. And, if you haven’t been to see Mookie Betts play in a game yet this season, then don’t wait much longer. He’s playing some of the best baseball of his career as he leads the Dodgers onward to victory after victory.
We advise all fans to purchase your tickets quickly and easily on-line, sooner, rather than later. You know how it can become when the team goes on incredible winning streaks and tickets all of sudden can become very scarce. Let’s keep supporting our team that is the current “leader of the pack” as we head rapidly towards the end of the regular season.
DODGERS WELCOME D-BACKS AND BRAVES AS CALENDAR TURNS TO SEPTEMBER
LOS ANGELES – The Boys in Blue return home to Dodger Stadium on Monday to host a seven-game homestand against the Arizona Diamondbacks (Aug. 28 – 30) and the NL East leading Atlanta Braves (Aug. 31 – Sept. 3) that includes three ticket pack celebrations and three promotional giveaways. Tickets remain available for all contests at Dodgers.com/Tickets.
Los Angeles will welcome its National League West rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks, as the two finish off play this season with a three-game series. The Dodgers will recognize Law Enforcement Appreciation Night on Monday before a loaded schedule on Tuesday as a Chris Taylor bobblehead, presented by Spectrum, will be given out along with a black bucket hat for those that purchased their seats through the Cal State LA ticket pack night, all while celebrating Taco Tuesday, sponsored by Delta Air Lines.
Salvadoran Heritage Night will highlight the regular season finale between the two clubs on Wednesday as fans who purchased a special ticket pack will take home a unique jersey.
The Atlanta Braves, who own the best record in baseball, will visit Chavez Ravine for a four-game slate as the Dodgers celebrate local Los Angeles organizations and figures throughout the weekend.
