LOS ANGELES - The first-place Los Angeles Dodgers, who have the best record in the National League, return home tomorrow and will take on the Toronto Blue Jays (Aug. 20-22) and New York Yankees (Aug. 23-25) during their six-game homestand.

The Blue Jays will make just their third ever trip to Los Angeles, and first visit since 2007 for a three-game series Tuesday-Thursday. Anthony Davis will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Tuesday in celebration of Lakers Night (ticket pack available at Dodgers.com/Lakers), and the Dodgers will give away a LA Bleeds Blue Cap Wednesday presented by Security Benefit and a Kiké Hernández bobblehead Thursday presented by Pirelli. The team also has ticket packs available for Social Media Night (Wednesday) and Cal State LA Night (Thursday), and more information on both special events is available at Dodgers.com/Events.

The New York series features a matchup of the best two teams in baseball, as the American League-leading Yankees return to Dodger Stadium for the first time since 2013. The series will also mark Major League Baseball’s annual Players Weekend, where players can showcase their passions, backgrounds and interests on uniforms and equipment. Player nicknames will be featured on the backs of their specially designed monochromatic all-black and all-white uniforms, which will allow for custom accessories to stand out more than ever before. Friday Night Fireworks presented by Denny’s will be set to a Players Weekend mix, and on Sunday the team will host Viva Los Dodgers presented by Coca-Cola and Spectrum at 2:00 p.m. at the historic 76 station prior to the 4:05 p.m. series finale.

Additionally, at Saturday’s game, Dodger spouses will be selling mystery bags with player autographed baseballs to benefit the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation at Left Field Plaza, Club Level and Loge Level behind homeplate.
