ELYSIAN PARK (CBS) — The Los Angeles Dodgers are hosting their first of two “Bark in the Park” promotions during Saturday night’s game against the Houston Astros.

The fun begins with a Pup Rally at 5:10 p.m. in Parking Lot G between the right and left pavilions.

A lot of goodies and contests are planned, as well as, an appearance by Tillman, a skateboarding bulldog and star of television commercials.

A portion of Saturday night’s proceeds are expected to be donated to the Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Los Angeles.

Because tickets for the “Bark in the Park” section have sold out, the team has added a second night. It will be held Sept. 1, when team will face the Arizona Diamondbacks.
