1981 World Series champion and legendary Dodger first baseman Steve Garvey will throw the ceremonial first pitch. Garvey, a member of longest-lasting infield in baseball history, the Garvey-Lopes-Russell-Cey infield, was an eight-time All-Star during his Dodger career that spanned from 1969 to 1982. He was the NL MVP in 1974, batted .338 in 11 postseason series and .417 in the 1981 World Series against the Yankees. Garvey was instrumental in the Dodgers' 1981 Division Series coming from 0-2 to sweep the final three games against Houston as he hit .368 with two homers and four RBIs.
Drew Drysdale, daughter of Hall of Fame Dodger pitcher Don Drysdale, will perform the national anthem.
The Veteran of the Game tomorrow is U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Keith Walters of Monterey Park. Walters was inspired by his father's 30 years of military service and entered the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1993. Following his graduation from West Point, Walters became a Tank Platoon Leader stationed at Fort Lewis, WA and has served at Fort Carson, CO, Camp Casey, Korea and on combat tours to Iraq and Afghanistan. He is currently serving as an Army Research Fellow at the Rand Cooperation. Walter's accolades include three Purple Hearts for injuries sustained in Iraq and Afghanistan and two Bronze Stars.
