The Dodgers announced today that they have scheduled the first ever offseason FanFest at Dodger Stadium on January 26, 2013. Usually they have a FanFest during the season before a scheduled game. What’s even better is that the FanFest will be on my birthday! Typically my birthday is totally devoid of anything baseball related since it is during the dead of winter.
The FanFest presented by State Farm will be held on Saturday, January 26, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in lot 6 of Dodger Stadium. Season ticket holders will be able to enter the gates a half hour early at 10:30 a.m. when they present their MVP cards. The Blue event will include player appearances and autograph sessions with Dodgers from the past and present. I suggest if you are an autograph collector to bring in baseballs or other items to be signed. Otherwise they usually have player cards which they give away for autographs.
A kids’ zone, interactive games, a memorabilia exhibit, entertainment, and other family-friendly activities are also planned for the FanFest. Food and Dodger merchandise will also be available for purchase, so you may not have to wait until April 1st for your first Dodger Dog of the year.
There will also be a Dodgers’ Ticket On Sale event which will offer Dodger fans their first opportunity to buy individual tickets for the 2013 season.
Both the FanFest and Ticket On Sale event are free.
