LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Dodgers, who won their seventh consecutive NL West title, will open postseason play tomorrow with Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the Washington Nationals at 5:37 p.m. at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers will also play host to Game 2 on Friday at 6:37 p.m. before the best-of-five series shifts to Washington for Game 3 on Sunday and Game 4 on Monday, if necessary. A potential Game 5 would be held at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday, Oct. 9.

For the NLDS, auto gates will open two and a half hours prior to the game, and stadium gates will open two hours before the game. Fans are encouraged to arrive early, while also urged to purchase parking in advance, carpool or enjoy a ride with Uber, the preferred ride of the Dodgers. The Dodger Stadium Express will continue to operate during the postseason from both Union Station and the South Bay, with service starting two hours before the game and free for everyone with a game ticket. Advance parking can be purchased at Dodgers.com/parking, and more information on transportation options can be found at Dodgers.com/transportation.

In honor of his MVP-caliber season, the Dodgers will give away a Cody Bellinger bobblehead at tomorrow’s game, marking the club’s first-ever Postseason bobblehead. The special edition bobblehead depicts Bellinger in his home run trot and will be available in both his home white uniform and road grays. The first 40,000 fans in attendance will receive either the white or gray version of the bobblehead depending on what is available at their point of entry.

After setting a single-season franchise attendance record this year, the Dodgers will honor longtime season ticket members with ceremonial first pitches during the NLDS. Lorraine Bradley, whose family – including her late father former Los Angeles mayor Tom Bradley – has held season tickets since 1958, will throw tomorrow’s ceremonial first pitch. Friday’s honors will go to Chuck Berney, who is celebrating his 50th anniversary as a Dodger season ticket member.

Thursday’s national anthem will be performed by American blues and Southern soul singer Charles Jones and nine year-old Madison Baez will sing the anthem on Friday.
