Los Angeles Dodgers Get Their Own Zip Code

The Los Angeles Dodgers are offering discounted tickets to postal workers and stamp/first day cover collectors so that they may come out to Dodger Stadium and celebrate the launch of the 90090 zip code on Saturday, June 9.

Kiosks will be set up with envelopes to cancel for first day covers.

Gregory G. Graves, the Postal Service's district manager for Los Angeles, in a statement released by the club, said, "Not only do more than three million citizens call Dodger Stadium their summer home each year but fans from all over the world send cards and letters to the Dodgers organization and their favorite players."

Dodgers CEO Jamie McCourt, instrumental in obtaining the unique code, encourages fans to write letters to their favorite players, mailed to Dodgertown, Calif. 90090.

McCourt is quoted as saying, "We welcome letters in any language, from any person, anywhere in the world."

Los Angeles Postmaster Mark Anderson will be throwing out the first pitch for the Dodger/Phillies game on Saturday which is scheduled to begin at 1:15 p.m.
