On March 21, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs will play a Spring Training game at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium in Tucson with all proceeds going to the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation.
The Dodgers and Cubs are committed to supporting the Tucson community by helping raise funds for the victims and families affected by the tragic Tucson shooting of January 8, 2011.
“We are very excited the Cubs agreed to play the Dodgers for this year’s game,” said John Green, father of Christina-Taylor Green and National Crosschecker for the Dodgers. “This game brings everything full circle for me since I played in the Cubs organization and my Dad (Dallas Green) was their General Manager.”
The Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation was established by the Green family to receive gifts in memory of Christina-Taylor. The mission of the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation is to honor the life and memory of Christina-Taylor through charitable and educational projects that reflect and embody her interests, values and dreams.
Tickets to the game go on sale Saturday, February 9 at 10:00 a.m. and are available online at www.tucsonpadres.com, by phone at (520) 434-1367 or at the Kino Stadium box office. Ticket prices range from $8.00-$25.00.
