All living members of the 1955 Dodgers were invited to participate in pre-game festivities Aug. 28, along with other family members and special guests associated with one of the most famous baseball teams in history. The former players included Duke Snider, Johnny Podres, Carl Erskine, Clem Labine, Tommy Lasorda, Don Newcombe, Bob Borkowski, George Shuba, Ed Roebuck, Billy Loes, Roger Craig and Don Zimmer.

The Dodgers' current promotional calendar is sprinkled with 1955-related souvenirs, including action statues honoring Robinson and Koufax. The Dodgers will wear the "Brooklyn" jerseys again for the August 28 game when the "Boys of Summer" reunite, reliving memories of their dramatic World Series victory over the New York Yankees, capped by Podres 2-0 shutout in Game 7 at Yankee Stadium on October 4, 1955.
