LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers and Padres face off on opening day Monday at Dodger Stadium, and here is some information regarding the day's schedule, regulations and pregame info.
Gates to the stadium and to the parking lot open at 10 a.m. PT, three hours before game time.
There is no tailgating allowed in the parking lot nor is there drinking allowed at Elysian Park outside the stadium.

In addition, there is no parking on Monday from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Avenue of the Palms (Stadium Way) between Scott Road and Academy Road.
There are more details on parking and shuttle information for 2015 here.
There will be features shown on the DodgerVision video boards from when the stadium opens at 10 a.m. through 12:25 p.m., when the pregame entertainment begins. In addition, there will be live music throughout the stadium from 10:30 a.m. until pregame ceremonies:
- DJ Lady Sha in the left field reserve level
- The Trip in the right field reserve level
- Angel City Dixieland Band throughout the reserve level
- The Blue Agave, a mariachi band, will be in the right field plaza, as will DJ Adam
- A magician will be in the left field plaza
The unfortunate existence of Dodger Stadium in-game hosts continues, and on Monday will be buttressed by George Lopez and Mary Hart, and at 12:25 p.m. a pregame concert will feature Tinashe, who will also perform the national anthem.
As part of the pregame ceremony, the U.S. Navy will feature a flyover with two fighter jets, and members of the Armed Forces will unfurl a giant U.S. flag across the outfield.
Nothing has yet been announced, but I'm sure there will be some sort of moment of silence for Billy DeLury, who passed away on Saturday.
There will be a ceremonial first pitch, information for which hasn't been revealed. But this season does mark the 50th anniversary of the 1965 World Series winners, and the 60th anniversary of the 1955 World Series winners, so it might be a safe bet to look in that direction.
First pitch is at 1:10 p.m.
