LOS ANGELES - On Sunday, June 19, fans at Dodger Stadium can enjoy a special Father's Day presented by Farmer John. Following the Dodger game, families will be invited onto the field for Father's Day Catch, the Dodgers announced today. Fans at the game will also receive Father's Day BBQ Aprons, a promotional item that received overwhelming support in an offseason fan survey.

Father's Day Catch will begin after the Dodgers' 1:10 p.m. game against the Houston Astros and the event will last for two hours. Farmer John will provide Father's Day Catch participants with foam baseballs.

This year marks the eighth year Dodger fans and their families will be able to enjoy Father's Day Catch at Dodger Stadium.

For 53 years, the Dodgers and Farmer John have worked together in creating memorable game-day experiences for generations of Dodgers fans. The DODGER DOG® hot dog is one of the most iconic baseball menu items in the nation. More than 70 million DODGER DOG® hot dogs have been served to fans since the start of this historic partnership.

Several fathers and sons have played for the Dodgers over the years. Third Base Coach Tim Wallach's son Matt plays for the Dodgers' Double-A affiliate and Manager Don Mattingly's son Preston plays for the Dodgers' Single-A Ogden Raptors. Infielder Ivan DeJesus Jr.'s father, Ivan DeJesus Sr,. played with Los Angeles from 1974-76. Dodger father-son connections from the past include Dick Schofield (1966-67) and Dick Schofield Jr. (1995), Al Campanis (1943) and Jim Campanis (1966-68) and Dolph Camilli (1938-43) and Doug Camilli (1960-64). Jim Campanis is currently a member of the Dodgers Alumni Association and represents the Dodgers at community events throughout the year.
