Angels Series Starts Tonight - Scheduled Autograph Signings, Game Give Aways and Other Stuff!


The next homestand starts this evening against the Anaheim Angels, and several old-tyme Dodgers will be in the house to sign free autographs for fans.  Below are the scheduled autograph opportunities and other odds and ends for this upcoming homestand.  BTW, the Dodger and Angels play two in LA starting tonight, then they play two in Anaheim starting on Wednesday. 

UPDATE:  I thought I should also note that since we are playing the Angels all fans can watch the next four games on FoxSports West (Angels Broadcast).  Better yet, it won't be "blacked-out."  You'll just not be able to listen to Vin Scully.
