LOS ANGELES -- Here are some pregame details for what will be a sold out Dodger Stadium for both Games 1 and 2 on Friday and Saturday night in Los Angeles.

For Friday's 6:45 p.m. PT start, parking lot gates will open at 3:45 p.m. and stadium gates will be open at 4:15 p.m., with Dodgers batting practice finishing up at 4:50 p.m, followed by Mets batting practice from 5-5:50 p.m.

For Saturday's 6:07 p.m. PT start, parking lot gates will open at 3 p.m. and stadium gates will be open at 3:30 p.m., with Dodgers batting practice finishing up at 4:15 p.m, followed by Mets batting practice from 4:25-5:15 p.m.

Throwing out the ceremonial first pitch in Game 1 is Ella Mason Annear, a four-year-old cancer survivor. She was diagnosed Heptoblastoma and a lung tumor seven months ago, and underwent surgery in April followed by seven rounds of chemotherapy and now is cancer free. For her incredible journey, she earned he nickname 'Ella the Great.'

Performing the national anthem before Game 1 is All-4-One, who also did so at Dodger Stadium on Aug. 28.

On Saturday, Tommy Lasorda will throw out a ceremonial first pitch before Game 2.

The national anthem that night will be performed by Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez, who will also perform on the field before the anthem. They did the same on Oct. 2 and were fantastic.
