Throughout the league, the annual celebration to commemorate the anniversary of Robinson breaking Baseball's color barrier in 1947 will feature on-field, pregame ceremonies.

The Foundation, established in 1973, provides four-year college scholarships, graduate school grants and extensive mentoring to a diverse group of academically distinguished students with leadership potential. The Foundation cultivates future leaders who will be ambassadors of Jackie Robinson's guiding life tenet, "A life is not important except in its impact on other lives."

The April 2015 Dodger Insider magazine (image attached) and the 2015 Yearbook (image attached) are available now at all Dodger team stores, and can be ordered at www.dodgers.com/magazine.

The 2015 Los Angeles Dodgers Yearbook celebrates the life and career of legendary Dodger lefty Fernando Valenzuela, in a special 21-page section, "The Man Behind the Mania." It is entirely in Valenzuela's words - beginning with his first memories of playing baseball at age 13 - and features never-before-seen photos. This month marks the 34th anniversary of the year that Valenzuela (who famously wore No. 34) pitched an Opening Day shutout at age 20, launching Fernandomania.

The Dodgers' 2015 yearbook also features a month-by-month review of the Dodgers' 2014 season, a detailed look at the 2015 roster, a special salute to NL MVP and Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw, "In Memoriam" tributes to members of the Dodger family, photos of celebrities who visited Dodger Stadium in 2014, information about tickets, promotions and much more.

The April 2015 issue of Dodger Insider magazine features Clayton Kershaw on the cover and a unique approach to telling his story. Vin Scully, Rick Honeycutt, Orel Hershiser and A.J. Ellis - each in their own words - have bylined stories describing what they believe makes Kershaw an ace among men. The package concludes with the full text of Kershaw's memorable January speech, accepting his NL Cy Young and MVP awards.

The Kershaw coverage is among more than 30 stories in this month's magazine, which also offers a rare look inside the memorabilia-stacked office of Tommy Lasorda, features on new Dodgers Brandon McCarthy and Yasmani Grandal, a story on the father-son broadcast combo of Jaime and Jorge Jarrín and much more. Dodger Insider magazine serves as a companion to the team's official blog, Dodger Insider (www.dodgers.com/insider), updated multiple times daily.
