Samantha Ford, Saugus Union School District physical education teacher, has been selected to throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the 40th Annual City of Santa Clarita Dodger Day on May 20. Ford was selected because of the shoe drive she organized after noticing some of her students wearing run-down and wrong-sized shoes to class. She has collected hundreds of shoes and gained national attention.
The Dodgers take on the Miami Marlins beginning at 7:10 p.m. Tickets cost $29-$85 and proceeds support Santa Clarita schools and nonprofit groups. The first 40,000 to enter the stadium that day will receive a Dodger pullover. To learn more, visit SCVDodgerDay.com or contact Patrick Downing at 661-250-3783.
