Dodger broadcaster Manny Mota will sign replica watches autographs from 3-5 p.m. at Viva Los Dodgers.

Viva Los Dodgers begins at 3 p.m. at Dodger Stadium’s 76 station.

Mickey Hatcher, an outfielder-infielder on the Dodgers’ 1988 World Series championship team, will sign autographs in the left field pavilion from 3-5 p.m.

The first 15,000 children 14 years old and under will receive a cereal bowl.

Jason Wade, the lead singer of the alternative rock band Lifehouse, will perform the national anthem.

As with most Sunday home games, children 14 and under can run around the bases following the game.

Auto gates will open at 2:40 p.m. and stadium gates at 3:10 p.m. Pregame ceremonies will begin at 4:55 p.m. for the 5:08 p.m. game.

This will be the final regular season game in 2015 between the Dodgers and Cardinals. The Dodgers lead the series since 1900, 1,018-1,016, with 16 games ending in ties.
