Dodgers, White Sox to play spring game in Tucson

Published:

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox will play a spring training game in Tucson, Ariz., on March 23 to benefit the Christina-Taylor Green Foundation.

The game will be played at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium with all proceeds going to the foundation named for the daughter of Dodgers scout John Green. Christina-Taylor Green was among six people killed in the January 2011 shooting in Tucson that also wounded retired U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. The youngster was the granddaughter of former major league manager Dallas Green.

During spring training last year, the Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks played a game in Tucson that benefitted the Tucson Together Fund.

The Dodgers Dream Foundation, in partnership with the Diamondbacks, will dedicate a Dodgers Dreamfield in the Tucson suburb of Oro Valley on a field that was renamed in memory of Christina-Taylor Green.
