At the Ballpark: Tonight is the first Dollar Dog Night of the season. Tomorrow night, the Phillies and Braves will pay tribute to Jackie Robinson. As has been the practice over the past several years, all uniformed personnel will wear Robinson's #42. I can't find any word online as to whether or not both teams will wear their normal uniforms, or if they'll be sporting throw-backs.
On Thursday afternoon, all fans will receive a MLB Network tote bag.
