Hall of Famers Juan Marichal, Vladimir Guerrero Sr., Rollie Fingers, Andre Dawson, Fergie Jenkins and Lee Smith are scheduled to attend the Capital One Play Ball Park fan festival at the Los Angeles Convention Center Sunday.

Seven former Dodgers are also set to attend Sunday — Rick Monday, Bill Russell, Reggie Smith, Charlie Hough, Al Downing, Dave Stewart and Jerry Hairston Jr. — along with Olympic softball gold medalist Lisa Fernandez and Samuel Allen and Pedro Sierra, who played in the Negro Leagues.

The fan festival is billed by organizers as a blend of baseball, softball, music, food, technology and fashion. It includes batting cages, panel discussions, pitching tunnels, gaming stations from MLB The Show 22, mascot home run derbies, performance training high energy drills, baseball and softball clinics, autograph sessions, photo opportunities (including with the World Series Trophy), exhibits and displays from the Baseball Hall of Fame and Negro Leagues Museum.

Capital One Play Ball Park will be open from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. Tickets are available for $20 at AllStarGame.com with the promo code play. Admission is free for Capital One cardholders, who will have exclusive access from 9-10 a.m. Sunday through Tuesday.
