For the first time since 1989, the Dodgers will get to return home to play as the defending World Series champions. With that in mind, the team has a number of events scheduled to welcome fans and the champions back to Chavez Ravine.
The Dodgers will start things off with a ring ceremony to honor players and coaches from the 2020 season. They will also unveil the banner with the 2020 World Series plaque that will be a permanent fixture at Dodger Stadium
More from the Dodgers on the schedule of events and how to prepare:
The weekend series vs. Washington will include Dodger players and coaches receiving their 2020 World Series rings and raising their championship banner on Friday, a tribute to Tommy Lasorda during pregame Saturday, and honoring the 40th anniversary of Fernandomania on Sunday. On Opening Day, fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 11:45 a.m. for pre-game ceremonies.
The Dodgers plan on honoring the life of Tommy Lasorda on Saturday evening. The Hall of Fame manager passed away this January from heart complications. The team is wearing a number 2 patch on their uniform this season for Tommy, as well as number 20 for the late Don Sutton.
The Dodgers are also set to honor the 40th anniversary of Fernandomania taking over Los Angeles. No word on what these two ceremonies will consist of, but you can bet they will have some legends in attendance for them.
Dodgers baseball is back, and so are fans. What a year!
