The Dodgers are thanking and paying tribute to the men and women of our nation’s armed services by honoring a Veteran of the Game at every 2012 home game.  Military members are given Field level tickets, complimentary parking, are invited to watch batting practice and are recognized during the game.

The Veteran of the Game tomorrow is U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Brian Clark of San Dimas, CA. Clark has served four combat tours, two in Iraq and two in Afghanistan. He has also served in the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit and in the 31st Expeditionary Unit traveling to Thailand, Qatar, Bahrain, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Kuwait.

The Dodgers have invited their Minor League partners, the Albuquerque Isotopes, Chattanooga Lookouts, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, Great Lakes Loons, Ogden Raptors and La Guaira Tiburones of the Venezuelan League, to Dodger Stadium for an annual end of year partners’ meeting. After a full day of meetings, the group is treated to the game. Earlier today, the Dodgers named right-handed pitcher John Ely and outfielder Joc Pederson as the Branch Rickey Minor League Pitcher and Player of the Year, respectively. Prior to Friday’s game, both Ely and Pederson will be honored in an on-field pregame ceremony.

This season’s event will pay tribute to Dodger coach Manny Mota’s 33rd season as a coach, 43rd year with Los Angeles and his 50-year career in Major League Baseball. La Gran Fiesta – Viva Los Dodgers will include live music from Boogaloo Assasins, Kinky, Ozokidz and Los Cuates de Sinaloa. Dodger players will make appearances and sign autographs.

Dodger catcher A.J.

The award, which was voted upon by Dodger uniform personnel, will be presented to Ellis by Campanella’s daughter, Joni Campanella Roan, during pre-game ceremonies.

Ellis and his wife, Cindy, have been active in the community, reading to Glendale, AZ school children as a part of the Read Across America celebration during Spring Training and supporting his teammates charities by attending Clayton Kershaw’s Texas Hoedown and Dodgers Dream Foundation Bowling Extravaganza. The 31-year-old has been a steady presence behind the plate all season, ranking second on the club with 127 games played and fourth among Major League backstops with 125 games and 1,097.0 innings as a catcher.

For the third consecutive year, the Dodgers Dream Foundation (DDF) will make a financial contribution to support the Roy and Roxie Campanella Physical Therapy Scholarship Endowment at California State University, Northridge (CSUN). Campanella was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969 and was among the first three Dodgers to have their uniform numbers retired alongside Jackie Robinson and Sandy Koufax. Campanella remained active in the Dodgers’ Community Relations Department until his death on June 26, 1993 at the age of 71.

Dodger pitcher Aaron Harang will host military families as part of Aaron’s Aces which occurs every Sunday home game. Harang’s guests receive game tickets, complimentary parking and meal vouchers courtesy of Coca-Cola. The group also gets a meet and greet on the field with Harang along with an autographed Aaron’s Aces T-shirt.

Nathan Blank, a @Dodgers Instagram follower, won the opportunity to throw the ceremonial first pitch for his submission in the club's #LATradition Instagram photo contest which received more than 4,500 submissions.

“Echoes of Faith” will sing the national anthem and “God Bless America.” The group was chosen from the Red, White and Dodger Blue National Anthem Contest for Fan Appreciation Day.

The Veteran of the Game is U.S. Army 1st Sergeant Nicolas Montaño of Burbank, CA. Montaño enlisted in 1982, has served in Guatemala and Iraq and has received multiple awards including a Bronze Star and the Global War on Terrorism Medal and the Iraq Freedom Medal.
