Tommy Lasorda, Kenley Jansen, A.J. Ellis and Darryl Strawberry at September 2013 Long Beach Expo

(Long Beach, California) — Dodgers Day is scheduled for Saturday, September 28, 2013, at the Long Beach Coin, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo (www.LongBeachExpo.com). The all-star autograph line up will feature Baseball Hall of Fame member Tommy Lasorda and L.A. Dodgers stars A.J. Ellis, Kenley Jansen, and Darryl Strawberry.
Dodgers’ faithful revere Tommy Lasorda as the manager of the Dodgers’ two most recent World Series titles, in 1981 and 1988, respectively.
Lasorda will be joined by former Dodgers outfield Darryl Strawberry. After a successful start to his career in New York, Darryl enjoyed an All-Star season with the Dodgers in 1991, hitting 28 home runs and driving in 99 runs.
Current Dodgers A.J. Ellis and Kenley Jansen round out the autograph line-up. Ellis has backstopped the Dodgers staff to the third best team ERA in the National League as the Dodgers continue their healthy lead in the NL West. Jansen has already reached 100 strikeouts on the season, the first Dodgers reliever to do so since Jonathan Broxton in 2009.
