Several Los Angeles Dodger players, manager Don Mattingly and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt will sign autographs before Sunday’s game against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium.
The goal? To help raise funds benefiting relief efforts for areas damaged by recent tornadoes.
Pitchers Clayton Kershaw, Jonathan Broxton, Matt Guerrier and Lance Cormier, outfielders Tony Gwynn Jr. and Marcus Thames and catcher Rod Barajas will join Mattingly and Honeycutt in signing autographs from 11:30 a.m.-12:15 p.m. in Parking Lot 6 during the Viva Los Dodgers festival. A $5 donation to The Salvation Army Disaster Relief fund is encouraged.
Cormier is spearheading the team's relief efforts. He and his family live in Tuscaloosa, Ala., one of the areas hardest hit by the storms. Guerrier, Thames and Honeycutt also live in areas affected by the tornadoes.
Fans will be able to donate money or school supplies at Dodger Stadium during games Monday through Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs. Donation locations will be behind home plate on every level and in the left and right field pavilions.
