    Congressional Gold Medal in 2010 for its service in World War II.

    More than 2,000 Alhambra residents are expected to attend the game.

    The Dodgers also will conduct Korean Heritage Night tonight.

    Korean Consul General Yeon-sung Shin will throw out a ceremonial first
    pitch, 15-year-old singer-actress Megan Lee will sing the national anthem and

    “God Bless America,’ the UCLA Hanoolim Korean Traditional Drumming Team will
    perform and Korean community leaders will be honored on the field during a
    pregame ceremony.
