Josh Beckett vs Brandon McCarthy

On Tuesday, the Dodgers face the Diamondbacks at 7:10 p.m. The first 40,000 fans in attendance will receive a Dodger T-Shirt presented by Las Vegas. 

In honor of the 60th Anniversary of Roz Wyman’s historic election to the Los Angeles City Council and the Los Angeles City Council declaring May 7, 2013 as “Roz Wyman Day” in Los Angeles, Wyman will throw the first pitch.  The Dodgers will honor Wyman with a video presentation and members of the Los Angeles City Council join her on the field with the City’s declaration.  Wyman, the youngest person and second woman to be elected to the Los Angeles City Council, called for bringing Major League baseball to Los Angeles in her first campaign for City Council in 1953. As a member of the Los Angeles City Council, Wyman is credited with making Los Angeles a major league city by leading the City’s effort to bring the Dodgers to Los Angeles.  Today, Wyman is the only surviving person involved in negotiating with Walter O’Malley to bring the Dodgers from Brooklyn and build Dodger Stadium at Chavez Ravine.

Tuesday’s Veteran of the Game is U.S. Army Captain Megan O’Connor from Galesburg, Illinois. O’Connor enlisted in the Army in 1996 to become a medic and went on to Officer Candidate School where she became a Medical Service Corps Officer serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan as a Medical Operations and Plans Officer.  She currently serves in the Reserves. Among her accolades are the Army Commendation Medal, Global War on Terrorism Medal and a National Defense Service Medal.
