More than 1,000 Santa Clarita Valley residents traveled to Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 27, to celebrate SCV Dodger Day and watch the Los Angeles Dodgers lose, 6-4 to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The 36th annual SCV Dodger Day saw nearly 100 representatives from youth organizations in the SCV have the opportunity to be down on the field to watch Santa Clarita Mayor Bob Kellar throw the first pitch to City Manager Ken Striplin.

Scott Moffitt, a representative of Hart Baseball and Softball, served as umpire

Pat Downing, arts and events supervisor for Santa Clarita, said a percentage of ticket sales benefited SCV youth nonprofits.

Downing said among the many organizations that benefited were the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley, Hart Baseball and Softball, SCVi Charter School, Helmers Elementary School and the Santa Clarita Youth Sports program.

"We hope to donate more than $5,000 to the particpating nonprofits after we’re done counting all the tickets," said Downing.

Ticket buyers were able to specify which nonprofit should recent their portion of the ticket sale.

"It puts the ball park in a whole different perspective when you’re on the field.," said Downing. "The stadium looks so much bigger."
