LOS ANGELES - Kenta Maeda along with teammates Yasmani Grandal and Yasiel Puig, Dodger manager Dave Roberts and Hall of Famer Jaime Jarrín will sign autographs for donations in the left-field plaza Tuesday in an effort to raise funds that will go toward earthquake relief in Japan and Ecuador. Both countries recently suffered devastating earthquakes, causing massive damage and loss of life. Auto gates open at 4:40 p.m. Tuesday, stadium gates open at 5:10 p.m. and fans are encouraged to arrive early. The players will sign autographs from approximately 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
A minimum cash donation of $10 will be collected per autograph with a maximum of two autographs per person. As soon as gates open at 5:10 p.m., fans will be directed to form lines in the left-field plaza where the Dodgers are scheduled to sign. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross and the Dodgers will match the total amount raised Tuesday.
Maeda, a native of Tadaoka in the Osaka Prefecture of Japan, spearheaded this fundraising event and Jarrín, a native of Quito, Ecuador, joined him to encourage support of his native country. The Dodgers take on the Miami Marlins at 7:10 p.m. Tuesday. Fans must hold a ticket to Tuesday's game to enter the stadium and participate in the fundraiser.
