Another thing... Please pitch around Abreu. Let's not allow him to hit a home run 3 days in a row against us.
Wednesday, June 4th at 7:10 PM
LHP John Danks vs. RHP Josh Beckett

It is 10,000 Wins Commemorative Pin night. The first 40,000 fans in attendance receive one. As you likely know, the Dodgers reached the 10,000 franchise win milestone on April 30th. They beat the Minnesota Twins 6 to 4. A pre-game ceremony will include a DodgerVision video tribute and the presentation of a special commemorative display for the fans to enjoy on behalf of the Dodger organization.
Actress Elle Fanning will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. The honorary first pitch will feature Special Olympics athlete Jorge Grosso. In addition, Special Olympics athletes representing six sports to be played this weekend, June 6-8 on the USC Campus for the Special Olympics Summer Games Invitational, will officially start the game with “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!”
