Ross Stripling, along with franchise legends Bill Russell and Steve Yeager are all scheduled to appear at Viva Los Dodgers prior to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Colorado Rockies concluding their three-game series at Dodger Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The monthly event begins at 11 a.m. (auto gates open at 10:40 a.m.), with Stripling due to hit the stage and begin taking photos with fans at 11:10 a.m. First pitch for the series finale is 1:10 p.m.
Russell and Yeager will be available to sign autographs at designated booths during Viva Los Dodgers.
The family-friendly festival will also feature interactive games, food and beverages and a live performance by Louie Cruz Beltran, a master percussionist who has performed at major festivals including the Playboy Jazz Festival at the Hollywood Bowl and the Concord Jazz Festival.
A season-long initiative, Viva Los Dodgers is held on the last Sunday of every month two hours prior to a home game. It culminates with La Gran Fiesta Viva Los Dodgers ahead of the final game at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 21.
Each festival includes a theme and is free with a ticket to that day’s game. Remaining player appearances and talent additions will be announced throughout the season.
The first Viva Los Dodgers of 2019 was headlined by Alex Verdugo, and third base coach Dino Ebel and Manny Mota have also taken time to interact with fans.
Prior appearances have included Kiké Hernandez and Julio Urias, as well as broadcasters Jaime Jarrín, Jorge Jarrín, Fernando Valenzuela and Pepe Yñiguez.
Each festival is held at the Historic 76 Station in Lot 6 at Dodger Stadium. Although no longer in service, the location is part of the Dodgers’ franchise history. Ahead of their July 6 game, 76 partnered with Kourtney Turner to surprise fans with an opportunity to win game tickets and more in celebration of ‘7/6 Day.’
