Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrin will be honored before Saturday afternoon's game between the Dodgers and Cardinals at Dodger Stadium. The first 50,000 fans in attendance will receive a Jaime Jarrin bobblehead doll, the first Dodger Stadium bobblehead for the legendary announcer.
Jarrin is currently in his 55th season broadcasting Dodgers games, an amazing accomplishment that often gets overlooked with fellow Hall of Fame announcer in his 64th season doing the same. Jarrin, the Spanish language voice of the Dodgers, will also take part in an on field ceremony before the game and will throw a ceremonial first pitch.
The Dodgers' first championship in Los Angeles came in 1959, the first year for Jarrin behind the mic for the team. The native of Ecuador has called three perfect games, 16 no-hitters, 26 World Series, and 21 All-Star games.
Because a large crowd is expected for Saturday's 4:15 p.m. PT game, the Dodgers are opening auto gates a half-hour early, at 1:45 p.m. PT.
