Los Angeles Lakers guard Josh Hart will throw the ceremonial first pitch as the Los Angeles Dodgers conduct Laker Night at Wednesday evening’s game against the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium.

Hart was fourth among rookies in 3-point shooting percentage during the 2017-18 season at 39.6 percent and the 2018 MVP of the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League.

Fans can take pictures with members of the Laker Girls dance squad in the Right Field Plaza before the game.

The Dodgers are offering a ticket package combining a ticket to the game and a Dodgers-Lakers three-quarter sleeve shirt. It is available at Dodgers.com/Lakers.

Former U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Jorge Gonzalez of Upland will be honored as the Military Hero of the Game. Gonzalez joined the Marine Corps in 2007 and served as a critical skills operator, a special forces assignment, with the 3rd Marine Special Operations Battalion.

Gonzalez deployed to Afghanistan and the Sahara/Sahel regions of Africa in support of Operation Juniper Shield.

Gonzalez’s decorations include the Joint Service Achievement Medal, Army Commendation Medal and Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal.
