Opening Day Info

Is she going to sing the National Anthem like that?

Opening Day Info:

Tuesday April 13

vs Arizona Diamondbacks

Clayton Kershaw vs Ian Kennedy

Parking Lot Opens: 10:10am
Stadium Opens: 10:40am
Game Time: 1:10pm

Pregame entertainment on Opening Day will include Country star LeAnn Rimes (who?) singing the National Anthem, Grammy Award-winning frontman and producer of the Black Eyed Peas throwing out a ceremonial first pitch and legendary journalist and Dodger season ticket holder Larry King announcing "It's time for Dodger Baseball" at the start of the game.

I did not just write that some guy from the Black Eyed Peas is throwing out the first pitch, did I? I'm sure he's a nice guy and it's a great band but this is Opening Day! Please tell me there is a surprise and someone more deserving is throwing out the first pitch.

Maury Wills and Tommy Davis will be signing autographs before the game at Autograph Alley (center field)

Matt Kemp will be receiving his Gold Glove Award! Oh yeah!

Kemp and Andre Ethier will be receiving their Silver Slugger Bats. Double Oh yeah!

United States Navy FA-18C Hornets from Strike Fighter Squadron 97 will fly over Dodger Stadium at the start of the game.

No rain. Should be a sunny day.

Enjoy the game. See ya there.

This sucks. Who is throwing the first pitch again? I don't know who these singers are. Bring Sandy Koufax!

Jamie McCourt is not available to throw out the first pitch? I'm sad.

A Dodger legend should be throwing out the first pitch, not a hip hop singer.

How about Living Legend Duke Snider, whose number was retired 30 years ago upon his election to the Hall of Fame.

Or, Steve Howe in recognition of the 30th anniversary of his Rookie of the Year season. Errrr, oops, scratch that.
