Former Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Ron Cey and longtime scout Mike Brito will sign autographs Sunday at the Viva Los Dodgers family-friendly festival preceding the game against the Miami Marlins.

Brito, best known for discovering Fernando Valenzuela in 1979 when he was an 18-year-old pitching in the Mexican League, will sign autographs from 11 a.m. to noon.

Cey played for the Dodgers from 1971-82 and was the third baseman on their record-setting infield of the 1970s and early 1980s. He will sign autographs from noon to 1 p.m.

Viva Los Dodgers will begin at 11 a.m. at Dodger Stadium’s 76 station and include food, beverages and interactive games.

There will also be performances by Cuban singer Albita, the Cuban musical group Havana L.A. and The Downey Comparsa, a dance group comprised of children ages 5-16 that strives to preserve Hispanic traditions and culture through dance.

Admission is free with a game ticket.

Sunday is also Cuban Heritage Day, with the Dodgers offering a ticket package including a long-sleeve T-shirt.

As is customary for Sunday afternoon games, the Dodgers will allow children 14 years old and under to run the bases following the game.
