The Dodgers and White Sox will play in Tucson on Friday, March 23.

The Dodgers and Chicago White Sox on Thursday finalized plans to play an exhibition game on Friday, March 23 in Tucson to benefit the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation. The game will be played at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium at 1:05 p.m., and all proceeds go to the foundation, established by the family of Green, one of the victims of a shooting in Tucson on January 8, 2011.

The event was planned to raise money for the victims and families affected by that shooting. The Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks played a game last spring in Tucson, on March 25, 2011 to raise money for the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation.

Green is the daughter of Dodgers scout and national cross-checker John Green, who said, "The beneficiary for this game, the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation, will give back to the local community that gave so much to us. Christina-Taylor’s wishes and our mission statement are to help those less fortunate in the areas of education, the arts, sports and leadership programs to enrich our children’s lives."

The Dodgers have a split squad that Friday, also playing a game against the Kansas City Royals in Surprise, Arizona.

Individual tickets go on sale on February 15, and can be purchased online at tusconpadres.com, as the stadium is also the home of the Triple A affiliate of the San Diego Padres.
