Comedian Carl Reiner and Congressman Pete Aguilar to Throw First Pitches at Tonight’s Game

Comedic legend Carl Reiner and Rep. Pete Aguilar, D- Redlands, will throw ceremonial first pitches before tonight’s Los Angeles Dodgers-San Francisco Giants game at Dodger Stadium.

The game is also the Dodgers’ inaugural Healthcare Appreciation Night, including a smoked chicken wrap available for purchase in field level section five, loge level section 132 and reserve level sections 5 and 11.

A ticket package including an exclusive Dodger scrub top is available at dodgers.com/healthcare.

Matt Luke, an outfielder-first baseman with the Dodgers in 1998, will sign autographs in the left field pavilion plaza from 5-7 p.m.

The national anthem will be sung by Kelley Jakle, who appeared in the film “Pitch Perfect 2” and is a great-granddaughter of the late Brooklyn Dodgers President Branch Rickey, a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

The Military Hero of the Game will be former U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Donald Baker of Port St. Joe, Florida. Baker enlisted in the Marine Crops in 2004 and served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan.

Baker was medically retired from the Wounded Warrior Battalion-West at Camp Pendleton in 2015.

Auto gates will open at 4:40 p.m. and stadium gates at 5:10 p.m. The Dodgers will take batting practice from 4:20-5:20 p.m. and the Giants from 5:25- 6:20 p.m.

Pregame ceremonies, including the national anthem and ceremonial first pitch, will begin at 6:57 p.m., with the game set to start at 7:10 p.m.
