Star-Studded Lineup Announced for 3rd Annual Dodgers All-Access

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (August 15, 2016) - The Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC) in partnership with the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation presents the 3rd Annual Dodgers All-Access taking place at Dodger Stadium, Thursday, September 1, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.  This officially sanctioned Dodger event gives guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go behind-the-scenes of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The evening will include a panel discussion with current and former Dodger players, coaches and executives. Guests will also have the opportunity to take batting practice in the Dodger Batting Cages, pitch in the Dodgers' Bullpen, tour the iconic stadium, call play-by-play action on historic Dodger moments, take photos throughout the stadium with alumni players, bid on Dodgers memorabilia in the silent auction and enjoy a dinner on the infield.

The program will include two panel discussions. Current players participating include Dodger first baseman Adrian Gonzalez; third baseman Justin Turner and outfielder Joc Pederson. Dodger manager Dave Roberts, Los Angeles Dodgers President, Baseball Operations Andrew Friedman and Dodgers General Manager Farhan Zaidi will also participate in a panel.

Dodger greats will also be a part of All-Access. The list includes former third baseman Ron Cey, former first baseman Steve Garvey, former outfielder Mickey Hatcher, SportsNet LA Broadcaster and former Cy Young winner and World Series MVP Orel Hershiser, Dodgers Special Advisor to the Chairman and Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda; former catcher and current coach Steve Yeager; former first baseman Eric Karros; former shortstop, coach and manager Bill Russell and former outfielder Reggie Smith.

SportsNet LA anchor John Hartung and Hershiser will emcee the program.

"While most people enjoy watching and talking about the Dodgers, few have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the players, coaches and executives," said LASEC president Kathryn Schloessman. "This is a great opportunity for guests to go 'behind-the-scenes' and hear firsthand stories about playing and being part of the Dodgers organization."
