Dodgers' Annual Fan Appreciation Day Sunday
Includes first-ever chance to win a Visit from the Dodgers' Grounds Crew to your Home Lawn
The Los Angeles Dodgers will celebrate Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday, September 30 as they play host to the Colorado Rockies at 1:10 p.m. during the final homestand of the regular season. Dozens of prizes will be awarded to fans during the game. This season’s celebration includes a first-of-its-kind prize offering fans the chance to win “A Visit from the Dodgers’ Grounds Crew to your Home Lawn” by members of the Dodgers’ grounds crew led by Turf Manager and Grounds Director Eric Hansen. Other Dodger experiences include one-hour batting practice for 10 with Dodger manager Don Mattingly and lunch for two with Hall of Fame Manager Tommy Lasorda.
The Dodgers’ ground crew visit will offer a winning fan the option of three unique garden upgrades executed by Hansen and members of his staff. The winner of this prize will choose three of the following offerings: a mowed and edged lawn, a square of Dodger Stadium’s grass planted in their lawn, the LA logo stenciled onto the lawn, installation of one authentic Dodger Stadium base, choice of warning track or infield dirt to be spread in a designated location and/or a professional irrigation inspection.
Fan Appreciation Day prizes include 2013 Dodgers’ season seats, a one-year lease on a 2013 Lexus, one United Club suite for 2013 regular season with complimentary food, trips to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Hawaii and Las Vegas, LA Kings tickets, an Earvin “Magic” Johnson autographed jersey, various Dodgers’ autographed jerseys, a 46” flat screen TV, two roundtrip United Airlines vouchers, a trip to Dodgers’ Spring Training and Los Angeles Galaxy tickets, just to name a few.
Nathan Blank, a @Dodgers Instagram follower, won the opportunity to throw a ceremonial first pitch for his submission in the club's #LATradition Instagram photo contest which received more than 4,500 submissions. The Dodgers’ official Twitter account, @Dodgers, has been celebrating Fan Appreciation Day all week. Beginning Monday, the team has awarded prizes including signed memorabilia, a $256 gift card to Carl's Jr., 30 percent off one item at Dodgers.com Shop and a Vin Scully signed bobblehead.
