OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Dodgers are partnering with American Fidelity Assurance Company to honor 20 outstanding individuals as All-Stars in Civic Service throughout the 2017 Pacific Coast League season.
These All-Stars in Civic Service make differences in their communities by working as municipal employees, and are prime examples of what civic service is all about as they strive to create a better place for all to live.
The Dodgers and American Fidelity will recognize two area municipal employees as part of Public Service Recognition Week during the team’s upcoming home series against the Fresno Grizzles. Public Service Recognition Week started in 1985 and is celebrated each May to honor federal, state, county and local government employees.
Honorees will be recognized on the field after the end of the second inning of their respective games.
This week’s honorees are:
- Thursday, May 11 – Jon Friesen, City of Kingfisher
- Saturday, May 13 – Dee Dee Baird, City of Blanchard
The Dodgers open an eight-game homestand with a 7:05 p.m. game Thursday against Fresno at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark on a $2 Thursday, featuring $2 soda (21 ounces), bottled water (20 ounces) and beer (16 ounces) from a line of Pepsi and Budweiser products.
Fireworks will follow Friday night’s 7:05 p.m. game against the Grizzlies, presented by True Sky Credit Union. The first 2,000 fans through the gates for Saturday’s 7:05 p.m. game against Fresno will receive a free hat.
