LOS ANGELES — Continuing a Southern California tradition that has extended more than three decades, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles threw the ceremonial first pitch Friday night during Mormon Night at Dodger Stadium.
A story posted on the LDS Newsroom website notes that Elder Holland's first pitch was caught by Elder Kevin S. Hamilton of the church's Second Quorum of the Seventy, who was serving as director of public affairs for the church in Southern California at the time of his calling to the Quorums of the Seventy last April. Approximately 5,000 Latter-day Saints attended the game, which featured the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Mormon Night has been an annual event at Dodger Stadium for more than 30 years, the Newsroom article noted. Similar events have been hosted by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, San Francisco Giants, San Diego Padres and Boston Red Sox.
