Monday is Jaime Jarrín T-Shirt and Tribute Night presented by Univision Radio Memorial Day at Dodger Stadium.

Hall of Fame Dodger broadcaster Jaime Jarrín, now in his 54th season as “the Spanish Voice of the Dodgers,” will be honored as part of the club’s season-long celebration of Dodger Stadium’s 50th Anniversary. Fans with the first 30,000 tickets Monday will receive a Jaime Jarrín T-Shirt featuring an excerpt of Jarrín’s famous home run call “¡Se va, se va, y se fue… despidala con un beso!” Jarrín has called more than 8,200 regular season games, 25 MLB All-Star games, more than 100 postseason games and 20 World Series during his more than half century with the Dodgers.

The Jarrín Dodger legacy now spans three generations as his son Jorge is in his first season as play-by-play announcer in Spanish for PRIME TICKET and his grandson Stefan played for the champion Arizona League Dodgers last season after being selected by the club in the 40th round of the 2011 draft. All three Jarríns will throw a ceremonial first pitch. A special pre-game and in-game tribute featuring Jarrín’s friends and colleagues from throughout baseball will be part of Monday’s celebration as well as an on-field presentation by Univision anchors and executives.

Monday is also Gymnastics Night featuring a pre-game show by Charter Oak Gymnastics, a more than 30-year-old gymnastics and fitness training facility.
