A seat in the area of Dodger Stadium’s Right Field Pavilion where Kirk Gibson’s home run in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series landed will be marked to commemorate the event, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced.

Seat 1 on Row D in Section 302 of the Right Field Pavilion will be painted blue and adorned with Gibson’s painted signature, as well as a historical marker.

Tickets for the “Kirk Gibson Seat” and a companion seat must be purchased as a pair at Dodgers.com/Gibson. The tickets will cost $300, with $200 donated to the Kirk Gibson Foundation to raise money and awareness for research into Parkinson’s disease.

Gibson was diagnosed with the degenerative disease in 2015.

The purchasers will also receive two commemorative T-shirts.

The Kirk Gibson Seat is the first seat at Dodger Stadium to be marked in tribute to a historic event.
