Dodgers: What to expect at ‘Reopening Day’ Tuesday
By Adam Weinrib
Didn’t get a chance to celebrate the Dodgers‘ 2020 World Series championship with a limited crowd when they returned home for the 2021 season?
No problem; on Tuesday, all fans will get a do-over with 56,000 of their closest friends, and things are gonna get loud.
The Dodgers will take on the Phillies again at 7:10 PST, sending Julio Urias to the mound to continue his recent run of dominance and vault this team past 40 wins and further into the stratosphere.
He and his teammates are going to be rocking some pretty special threads while doing it, too.
That’s because Dodger Stadium will finally be back to full capacity, thanks to the progress made in vaccinations both in California and around the country.
To celebrate “Reopening Day,” we’ll get to experience Take 2 on LA’s golden title-winning celebration. The gold-trimmed jerseys and hats are back, and there’ll be many special guests in attendance to up the historic factor of the occasion.
The Dodgers will be wearing gold jerseys and caps for Dodger Stadium Reopening Day.
In addition to getting a chance to celebrate their champions with a much larger crowd than ever before, all of Dodger Stadium’s offseason upgrades will be on display and ready to be enjoyed.
Were you a fan of shorter lines and social distancing? We can’t help you here. But if you yearned for the roar of a community, and if you felt separated from your fellow man during last year’s odds-defying title run, then Tuesday should be much more your speed.
There will also be a series of special guests in attendance to make this day truly historic. Distinguished Dodgers alumni will be meeting and greeting arriving fans in the Centerfield Plaza, ushering in a new fan experience for this generation of Hollywood baseball. Brad Paisley will also be on hand to perform a very special national anthem.
For the rest of the 2021 season, Dodger baseball will look a lot more like what you’ve come to expect, as their record also speeds towards the NL West-“leading” Giants.
Big summer coming up, LA. Get ready to get loud.
