Citing the end of school and the beginning of summer, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced today that they will provide Free Parking in the general lots at Dodger Stadium for the three-game series June 16-18 versus the Oakland Athletics. Gates open at 5:10 p.m. and game times are 7:10 p.m.
Fans will be able to enter all Dodger Stadium gates, where the $15 parking fee will be waived for entrance into the general lots.Â Fans who have purchased preferred parking will still park in their sections.
The Dodgers will be celebrating Heroes Week during the three-game series, honoring police, firefighters, and community heroes. DodgersWIN, the clubâ€™s womenâ€™s initiatives network, will be presenting the tributes.
On Tuesday, June 16, Police Appreciation Night, the team pays tribute to Los Angeles law enforcement officials. Kent McCord, who portrayed an LAPD officer on the show, â€śAdam-12,â€ť will join female LAPD officers in the DodgersWIN tent in centerfield before the game.
Since the Dodgers defeated the Aâ€™s in the 1988 World Series, Oakland has played just eight times at Dodger Stadium with the Dodgers winning five of those eight games.
