On Saturday, Hyun-Jin Ryu will take the mound for the Dodgers as they face off against the Colorado Rockies for the second game of a three-game series.
The first 40,000 fans at the game will be treated to a promotional giveaway of a Kiké Hernandez Jersey Tee and, for those interested, fans are also invited to stay after the game for the Christian Faith Day activities.
The program will be led by the Dodgers’ pastor, Brandon Cash, who has served as the team’s chaplain since 2010.

The event will feature the likes of starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw, reliever Kenley Jansen, outfielder AJ Pollock, and team manager, Dave Roberts. Each will share their personal testimony and provide insight into how their faith has impacted their lives in professional baseball.
Both Kershaw and Jansen spoke at last year’s Christian Faith Day, an event that has been hosted annually at Dodger Stadium. This will be Pollock’s first time participating as it’s his first year with the team.
In the past, former Dodgers players such as Adrian Gonzalez and A.J. Ellis were also commonly featured in the annual festivities.
In addition to the featured speakers, the postgame program this year will also include a musical performance by Hillsong California.
