Here are some Details for Saturday's Old Timers Game - Check Out the Player Rosters

A tradition that had been abandoned many moons ago will be returning to Dodger Stadium this coming Saturday for a second straight year.  Shortly after the last pitch of Saturday's game against the Giants, the Dodgers will host an 2-inning Old-Timers Game.

The regular ballgame starts at 1:10 PM, so I would figure that the Old-Timers Game would be getting started about 3 hours later - 4:10 PM, or so.  Go here for more information.

The game will feature many former players who most of you will remember.  It's a "who's who" of beloved Dodger brethren, and a rare chance to see so many former Dodgers in one place.

BTW, the first 40,000 fans in attendance to the game will receive a vintage styled Dodgers pennant.  See it on the right.  Also, Tommy Davis, Charlie Hough, “Sweet” Lou Johnson, Manny Mota, Don Newcombe and Jerry Reuss will be on hand and a part of Old-Timers pre-game introductions.

Below is the scheduled Old-Timers Day roster:
Team 1 (will wear Dodger home jersey's)
  • Dusty Baker OF
  • Tim Wallach 3B
  • Mickey Hatcher SS/OF
  • Steve Sax 2B
  • Mike Marshall 1B
  • Reggie Smith OF/1B
  • Steve Yeager C
  • Raul Mondesi OF
  • Davey Lopes 2B
  • Darryl Strawberry 1B/OF
  • Ron Cey 3B
  • Eric Gagne P
  • Fernando Valenzuela P
Team 2 (will wear Dodger away jersey's)
  • Shawn Green OF
  • Derrel Thomas 2B/C
  • Bill Russell SS
  • Ken Landreaux OF
  • Eric Karros 1B
  • Rick Monday OF
  • Nomar Garciaparra 3B
  • Maury Wills SS
  • Steve Finley OF
  • Orel Hershiser P
  • Rick Honeycutt P
I think it'll be great to see El Toro and the Bulldog on the mound again. And, I'm willing to bet that Eric "Game-Over" Gagne stills has something left in the tank.

Oh... And you heard it here first.  I predict home runs by Shawn Green and Raul Mondesi - 'cause, why not.
