Dodgers to honor late Duke Snider this season
The Dodgers will wear a patch in memory of Hall of Fame
outfielder Duke Snider throughout this season and will celebrate
his life on Aug. 9 at Dodger Stadium.
The patch will feature Snider’s No. 4 jersey and will be worn on
the Dodgers’ home, road and alternate Brooklyn uniforms at every
game starting Thursday, when the team opens the season against the
Giants. Snider’s number was retired in July 1980.
On Aug. 9, the Dodgers will give away a bobblehead of Snider to
the first 50,000 fans at their game against the Phillies. Snider’s
family will participate in a pregame ceremony honoring the
franchise’s all-time leading home run hitter.
Snider died in February at 84.
