Several upgrades to the electrical infrastructure throughout Dodger Stadium were also made, increasing lighting throughout the stadium.

Improvements were also made to guide fans safely through the parking lots and along the routes used when fans take the Dodger Stadium Express to and from the stadium.

New merchandise available includes “Star Wars-” themed pennants, cups and lanyards and a Marvel movie series lanyard. A New Era store is now at Loge Section 150.

A dedicated Uber Zone has been established in Lot 12 for fans to meet their drivers after the game. Fans using Uber to come to Dodger Stadium can be dropped off at any of the five entry gates.

The famed Budweiser Clydesdales will make stops around the inner parking circle beginning at 10:30 a.m., continuing throughout the pregame activities.

Sam Harris, lead singer of the alternative rock band X Ambassadors will perform the national anthem.

Representatives of the U.S. Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Air Force will present the colors. Members of the U.S. armed forces will unfurl a giant flag in center field, a display in the shape of the United States.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s Air Support Division will conduct a formation flight.

The ceremonial first pitch will honor Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully, who is in his unprecedented 67th and final season with the team. Pregame ceremonies will celebrate many of the great moments in Scully’s career.

Retired U.S. Army and U.S. Coast Guard Sgt. Eddie Arambula of Torrance will be honored as the Military Hero of the Game. Arambula joined the U.S. Army in 2002 and in March 2004 was deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom II.
