Wednesday is a Throwback Day and the Dodgers and Reds will wear 1940s throwback uniforms. In honor of the Dodgers’ 1940s-era jerseys, Condor Squadron planes will fly over the stadium during pre-game ceremonies.  The Condor Squadron salutes the men and women of our armed forces and honors the sacrifices they have made through flights in restored North American AT-6/SNJ World War II vintage aircraft. More info here.

Each of the Dodgers’ throwback midweek day games features half-price food and soft drinks and remaining dates include Wednesday, June 22 vs. Detroit, Wednesday, August 10 vs. Philadelphia and Wednesday, August 31 vs. San Diego. For details or to purchase tickets, visit www.dodgers.com/throwback.

The Dodgers Dream Foundation is currently auctioning off the game-worn full uniform set (cap, pants and autographed jersey) that the Dodgers wore during the May 4 throwback day game vs. the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, May 4. The auction ends on July 11 and is live at www.dodgers.com/DDFauction.

US Marine, Lance Corporal Chuck Sketch, who is blind and a double amputee and was the first such participant to compete in the L.A. Marathon, will throw out an honorary first pitch.

Larry Elder of “The Larry Elder Show” on TalkRadio 790 KABC will throw out a ceremonial first pitch and broadcast live for the Dodger Stadium press box before the game.
