The Dodgers honored our troops on Veterans Day by inviting dozens of military members to take batting practice and bullpen sessions under the eyes of Tommy Lasorda, Don Newcombe, Kenny Landreaux, Steve Yeager, Bobby Castillo, Roy Gleason and General Manager Ned Colletti.

The Dodgers also announced that they will make discounted tickets available to active duty and retired armed forces personnel, including their Reserve and National Guard, for all Dodger home games in 2011. A member of the military can purchase Infield Box tickets normally priced at $110 on the field level for $25. Military spouses and kids will also be included in the discount.

So with a valid military ID, members can also get:

  • Preferred Box Seats for $20 (originally $60)
  • Left Field Pavilion for $10 (originally $20)
  • Top Deck for $7 (originally $15)
