Fullerton, CA – LA Dodgers great and Fullerton resident, Tommy Lasorda will greet fans at the Fullerton Train Station on Monday, May 27, 2013  at 2:00 p.m. to promote the Metrolink Train Services for the Angels vs. Dodgers Freeway Series.

The special Metrolink train service will complement the Dodger Stadium Express buses operated by Metro from L.A. Union Station to Dodger Stadium and back.

"We are delighted to host one of Fullerton's most prominent residents, Tommy Lasorda, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Metrolink at the Fullerton Station on Memorial Day," commented Bruce Whitaker, Fullerton’s Mayor. “This is a win-win for baseball fans in the community. They get to meet Tommy and make an easy trip to the stadium by taking the train from Fullerton’s Transportation Center to watch an Angels vs. Dodgers game.”
