Los Angeles Dodgers legend Steve Garvey is returning to Dodger Stadium to host the latest “Grilling with The Garv” event before Friday’s series against the New York Yankees.
Beginning at 6 p.m. PT at the King’s Hawaiian Grill in the left field plaza, Garvey will offer grilling tips to fans and assist with cooking food samples. Garvey additionally will be available for photo opportunities.
The “Grilling with The Garv” is one of two ongoing series he regularly hosts at the King’s Hawaiian Grill at Dodger Stadium. The other is “Way We Were,” a discussion-based event in which Garvey reflects on his career and takes questions from fans.
Among the fare available are pulled pork sliders served on King’s Hawaiian original Hawaiian sweet rolls, smoked pork nachos, big island lava wings and a Hawaiian BBQ Dodger Dog that’s served on a King’s Hawaiian hot dog bun and topped with pulled pork and the company’s original sweet pineapple BBQ sauce.
Garvey was recently inducted into the inaugural class of “Legends of Dodger Baseball,” joining Don Newcombe and Fernando Valenzuela.
Garvey spent 14 seasons with the Dodgers, was a member of four National League pennant-winning teams, two-time NL Championship Series MVP and a member of the 1981 club that won the World Series against the Yankees.
Garvey had at least one hit in each of the six games and overall went 10-for-24 with three runs scored, one double and two walks.
He ranks highly among the all-time Los Angeles leaders in several categories, including hits (1,968; second), doubles (333; first), home runs (211; third), RBI (992; first) and games played (1,727; third).
While it begins with Garvey’s event, the series with the Yankees will also be highlighted by Players Weekend. Players will be in monochromatic looks and with their selected nickname on the back of their jerseys.
The series also calls for Friday Night Fireworks, a Spouses Mystery Bag Event on Saturday, and Viva Los Dodgers prior to the series finale Sunday.
Fans can purchase a mystery bag from players’ wives and girlfriends (each includes a player autographed baseball) in the left field plaza, club level and loge level behind home plate. Proceeds benefit the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation.
With the Yankees making their first visit to Dodger Stadium since 2013, capacity crowds are expected for each of the three games.
