LOS ANGELES, CA (FOX 11) - Dodger’s third baseman Justin Turner invited a special guest to throw out the first pitch for Tuesday night’s game against the San Francisco Giants. 8-year-old Luke Lang who lives in Bellmore, New York, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and was diagnosed in March 2013. He met Turner a few months after that, and the two have struck up a nice friendship ever since.
In addition to throwing the first pitch, they went to Dave & Busters earlier in the day and came back with a huge rally banana.
Tuesday night’s game is also “Justin Turner Bobblehead Night” at the ballpark, where the first 40,000 fans in attendance will receive the bobblehead.
