Jon Weisman at Dodger Insider finally shares some news about the fast-approaching Dodgers 2016 FanFest at Dodger Stadium scheduled to occur at the end of the month (Saturday, January 30th). Go here for that.
He is asking that everyone planning to attend the event immediately download a "FREE" admission ticket. Go here for that. Keep in mind that the event is FREE, but apparently the Dodgers want to gauge how many fans are going, and this appears to be the best way to do it.
BTW, the #FanFest will happen "rain or shine." Per Jon's post:
Open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., FanFest will feature appearances and autographs from Dodger players, coaches and legends. Parking gates open at 9:30 a.m. (parking is also free), with the admission gates in the outfield plazas opening at 10.Stay tuned!
Concerned about El Nino? FanFest will take place rain or shine, although in case of inclement weather, some on-field activities may have to be curtailed.
Autograph session tickets will go on sale soon, and an announcement will be made on the player schedule and the sale of these tickets. All autograph session ticket proceeds will benefit the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation. Donations will support LADF programs and provide assistance to community organizations in the areas of education and literacy, health and wellness and sports and recreation.
VIP Experiences including player meet-and-greets and Q&As, batting and pitching lessons, and clubhouse and press box tours will also be available soon for advance purchase online.
Information about autographs should be expected soon!
