The Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC) in partnership with the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) are hosting the sixth Annual Dodgers All-Access at Dodger Stadium on Monday, with A.J. Pollock, Joe Kelly, Corey Seager, Alex Verdugo and Austin Barnes headlining the evening.
The event, which begins at 5 p.m. PT, will include include two panel discussions: one with Kelly, Pollock and Verdugo; and a second with Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten, president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman and vice president and assistant general manager Brandon Gomes.
The players’ panel has produced several highlights as teammates ribbed one another and pulled back the curtain on the clubhouse and what can become a running joke on any given day during a long season.
“Few people have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the players, coaches and executives, to meet and take photos with the Dodger legends,” LASEC president Kathryn Schloessman said.
“This is a great opportunity for guests to go ‘behind-the-scenes’ and hear firsthand stories about playing and being part of the Dodgers organization.”
SportsNet LA anchor John Hartung and broadcaster Orel Hershiser will again emcee the program.
Attendees will additionally be treated to an opportunity to take batting practice where Dodgers players do, take a behind-the-scenes tour of Dodger Stadium, create a play-by-play call for iconic moments in franchise history, take photos with current and former players, bid on memorabilia via silent auction and enjoy a dinner on the infield.
Former Dodgers scheduled to be part of the All-Access event include Ron Cey, Mickey Hatcher, Tommy Lasorda, Chase Utley, Rick Monday and Steve Yeager, among others.
Individual tickets and tables for this year’s Dodgers All-Access event remain available for purchase. Proceeds from the event will be split between the Dodgers Foundation and the LASEC.
The LADF continues to give back to the community through an array of initiatives, most notably through the construction of Dodgers Dreamfields. They recently unveiled a 51st Dreamfield at Jack Bulik Park, with the location also serving as their second universally accessible field.
Last year, the Foundation announced a commitment to reach 75 Dodgers Dreamfields by 2033 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the franchise moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles.
