The stadium might be empty, but the Dodgers won’t let an opportunity to honor military heroes pass them by. The team is well-known for treating veterans and military families very well, and the night before Memorial Day is certainly no exception.
We came to investigate this tribute at Dodger Stadium: the @Dodgers have partnered with TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) on this display to honor veterans for Memorial Day. Each light represents the life of a fallen service member @CBSLA @KCBSKCALDesk pic.twitter.com/PnVHXXTlgX

A flyover of the stadium on Sunday night revealed that the Dodgers had a special light display set up to honor those heroes. The stadium was glowing a very patriotic red, white, and blue for about thirty minutes on Sunday evening.
Each individual light will honor the memory of a military member that served our country. – Dodgers’ Press Release
The Dodgers partnered with the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) to create the light display in honor of the fallen. TAPS aims to provide comfort and care to families of fallen military members by creating a peer support network and connections to grief resources.
