Dodger Stadium Holds Event To Help Victims of Japan

On Tuesday, March 15th from 5 a.m.  -7 p.m.  the Dodgers and NBC LA will  hold a “drive-through” relief event at Dodger Stadium tomorrow to help raise money for the American Red Cross Japan earthquake and tsunami relief efforts.

Dodger alumni Bobby Castillo, Kenny Landreaux, Rudy Law, Al Ferrara, Jimmy Campanis and Derrel Thomas and NBC LA on-air personalities will be on hand to take donations.

Donors who give $20 or more will each receive two tickets to an upcoming Spring Training exhibition game at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers have a long-standing history with Japan dating back to the 1950s. Current Dodgers from Japan include pitcher Hiroki Kuroda and three minor league players. Nine members of the front office are also originally from Japan.
