Dodgers Vs. Yankees Tonight and Tomorrow - Details Here

In one of the more anticipated match-ups of the year, the Yankees come to town to face the Dodgers in a series that is sure to invoke historic memories.  I'll be going to the game, courtesy of Barry's Tickets, and will sit in one of my favorite spots - the Top Deck.  Sure, I won't anywhere near the field, but you can see everything from up there.  Besides, the fans are better in the cheap seats.  BTW, Barry's Tickets recently became an sponsor of this blog, so I wanted to give them a Shout Out - "You Feelin' Me!"

Per a Dodger press release:
The Dodgers take on the Yankees for the second time this season as Los Angeles played its first-ever regular season road games against the New York Yankees in a two-game series in the Bronx from June 18-19. The Dodgers have split their eight regular-season meetings with New York. The clubs have met 66 times in the postseason with New York holding a 37-29 advantage and the 11 World Series meetings between the Dodgers and Yankees is the most common Fall Classic matchup and ranks second in all-time meetings for a championship title among the four major pro sports.
The Dodger will honor Mariano Rivera prior to tonights game.  Auto and stadium gates open early at 5:10 p.m. Comedian Ken Jeong, best known as “Mr. Chow” in the Hangover trilogy, will read the Dodgers’ starting lineup.
(The) Veteran of the Game is U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Patti Taylor of Cranesville, NY. Taylor enlisted in 1964, was trained in Combat Medicine and served in numerous army installations throughout the country. She was deployed to Vietnam and served in support of Operation Desert Storm/Shield, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Taylor is currently a volunteer nurse for Operation Mend at UCLA where wounded service members are brought for reconstructive and functional surgeries due to injuries sustained while deployed. Taylor’s accolades include two Army Achievement Medals and the Army Commendation Medal. 
Wednesday's game with the Yankees with feature Clayton Kershaw versus Hiroki Kuroda.  Like yesterday, auto and stadium gates open early at 5:10 p.m.Samuel L. Jackson will read the Dodgers’ starting lineup.
Wednesday’s Veteran of the Game is U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Patryck Stanwood of West Hills. Stanwood enlisted in 2005 and has served at Camp Pendleton, CA and Kaneohe, HI and was deployed to Afghanistan, Kuwait, Jordan and Australia. He was trained as an Embarkation Chief, was recently honorably discharged from the Marine Corps and is now pursuing his Bachelor of Science in Business Management at Cal State Northridge. Stanwood’s accolades include the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal and the NATO Medal – ISAF Afghanistan.
BTW, the Dodgers and Sanrio (maker of Hello Kitty) are teaming up.
The Dodgers and Sanrio are launching exclusive Hello Kitty co-branded merchandise that will be available starting tomorrow at all official team stores at Dodger Stadium. These items will include Hello Kitty stickers ($4), pin ($10), plush mascot ($12), keychain ($15), coin purse ($21), pouch ($23), sunglasses ($25), cap ($34), plush ($35), phone case ($40), Kids Tee ($40), Girls Tee ($40), Tote bag ($57) and women’s hoodie ($92).
