“Let’s Be Cops” stars Jake Johnson and Rob Riggle will throw the ceremonial first pitch and announce the Los Angeles Dodgers
starting lineup for tonight’s sold-out game against the Chicago Cubs at Dodger Stadium.

The R-rated comedy will be released Aug. 13.

Cassie Steele, best known for her role in the acclaimed Canadian- produced teen series “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” will sing the national anthem.

Former U.S. Navy Petty Officer First Class Gabriel Mirelez will be honored as the Veteran of the Game. He served eight years in the Navy as an aviation warfare technician. His accolades include the National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Medal and Iraq Campaign Medal.

Al Downing, who allowed Hank Aaron’s record-setting 715th home run in 1974, will sign autographs in the right field pavilion plaza from 4-6 p.m., the same time as Al Ferrara, an outfielder with the Dodgers in 1963 and 1965-68, will be signing autographs in the left field pavilion plaza.

Downing and Ferrara will both sign autographs in the Stadium Club from 6-6:30 p.m.

The crowd will include 250 youths from Concerned Citizens Community Involvement, a nonprofit organization that promotes health, education and well- being in South Los Angeles and neighboring communities, and the Peoples Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church in South Los Angeles will be attending through Kids 4 Dodgers Baseball. The program provides a reserve level ticket, voucher for a Dodger Dog and beverage, a Kids 4 Dodgers Baseball T-shirt and transportation to the game for low-income, inner-city youths.

All auto gates will open at 3:30 p.m. and all stadium gates at 4 p.m. for the 6:10 p.m. game.
