Dodgers host meeting with Austin Barnes and Steve Sax at WSS stores

The Los Angeles Dodgers are hosting separate meet and greet events at local WSS stores on Saturday, featuring Austin Barnes and Steve Sax. Both start at 10 a.m. PT and offer VIP line access for fans who make at least one $35 purchase in-store.

WSS stores housing the Dodgers are in Perris (2660 N. Perris Blvd., Perris, CA 92571) and Moreno Valley (24175 Hemlock, Moreno Valley, CA 92577). In addition to photo ops, the events will feature music, prizes, giveaways and more.

Barnes just completed his eighth season with the Dodgers and he remains under contract until 2024 after signing an extension last July.

Barnes is currently the longest-serving player in the Dodgers organization, but will again fall behind Clayton Kershaw in that regard once his re-signing contract is formalized. Justin Turner would also be more tenured with the Dodgers if he re-signs.

Sax was selected by the Dodgers in the ninth round of the 1978 MLB Draft and spent eight seasons with the team. During that time, Sax was a three-time All-Star and won two World Series.

Along with Eric Karros, Sax threw the ceremonial first pitch before Game 1 of the National League Division Series against the San Diego Padres.

Prior to that, he represented the Dodgers in the 2022 MLB Draft as one of 17 players to attend the event at LA Live.
