The Los Angeles Dodgers' Caravan, designed to bring the excitement of Dodgers baseball to the community, will make a stop at Cal Poly Pomona on Tuesday, Jan. 25, between noon and 2 p.m., in University Park.

Dodgers' former first baseman Steve Garvey, manager Jim Tracy, left-hand pitcher Odalis Perez and broadcaster Pepe Yniguez will be on campus signing autographs and giving away Dodgers memorabilia. Faculty, staff and students will have an up-close-and-personal opportunity to meet and hear from Dodgers, and see demonstrations of professional baseball skills. In addition, a mobile Dodgers museum, video games and an inflatable pitching game will be on hand.

The event is all part of the Dodgers' Community Outreach program.

“The Dodgers are intimately woven into the fabric of the Southern California community, with more than three million fans coming to visit Dodger Stadium annually and untold legions of fans watching and listening at home,” says Dodgers owner Frank McCourt Jr.  ”These caravans give us the opportunity to give back to our fans, to actually visit their communities, and show our appreciation for their loyal support.”
