On this May Day, the Dodgers plan to answer the mayday call from the states affected by the storm- and tornado-related disasters in the South.

Headed by Dodgers’ reliever Lance Cormier whose family resides in Tuscaloosa, Ala. that was particularly hard hit, he and other players, coaches and Manager Don Mattingly will take part in autograph sessions today in Lot 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. and on Tuesday from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. in Lot G in Autograph Alley outside of center field. Taking part in signing sessions are Mattingly, pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, Clayton Kershaw, Jonathan Broxton, Matt Guerrier, Cormier, Marcus Thames, Tony Gwynn Jr. and Rod Barajas.

A $5.00 donation encouraged and monetary donations of cash and checks will be accepted. Checks should be made out to “The Salvation Army Disaster Relief.”

The Dodgers’ Double-A affiliate in Chattanooga, Tennessee was damaged as well.
