Happy Mother's Day
To all the moms out there, here’s to you. May you raise great Dodger fans and enjoy the day.
We’ve got a couple great moms being honored here at the stadium today – Nancy Colton, our longtime season ticket holder and Desiree Sanchez, who has worked in our ticket office for several years. Both are currently battling breast cancer and are an inspiration to us all. They’ll throw out the first pitch on behalf of all the women in the world who are fighting this heartbreaking disease and all the healthy women out there who can learn a lesson from their courageous stories.
Of course, there’s something all you Dodger fans can do to help and that’s assist in the search for a cure. Of course, there’s ThinkCure, among numerous fantastic charities, but in this case, you can help raise money AND see two legends in one night. Vin Scully and John Wooden will take part in an event at the Nokia theatre on June 13 and proceeds from the event go to ThinkCure and Mattel Children’s Hospital. You can purchase tickets at this link and get a once-in-a-lifetime experience while helping so many others along the way.
And if you’re looking for something to do for Mom, bring her down to the stadium, where she can get a rose handed to her by a Dodger player or coach and a free Smashbox lip gloss for the first 25,000 in the house. Even better, you can walk around the warning track on the field with your mom after the game, something neither of you will likely forget for a long time.
Most of our players will be swinging pink bats and helping raise awareness and money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which also helps in finding a cure for breast cancer.
Here’s the lineup for the day…
