Chef Merito Named Official Seasoning Of The Los Angeles Dodgers

LOS ANGELES, March 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Baseball season takes on a whole new meaning this year as Chef Merito joins the Los Angeles Dodgers to celebrate Latino culture through the Viva Los Dodgers year-long initiative.  Chef Merito, named the Official Seasoning of the Los Angeles Dodgers, will be on hand at every Viva Los Dodgers event to serve mouth-watering carne asada tacos to thousands of Dodger fans.


Viva Los Dodgers Days, a season-long initiative, is now in its fourth year. The family-friendly pregame festival is held in lot 6 two hours prior to each Sunday's home game and is free with a Dodger game ticket for each Sunday game.  Fans can enjoy live music and family-friendly activities.  La Gran Fiesta on Saturday, September 14 is the last Viva Los Dodgers event and is the Dodgers' marquee National Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.

"The Dodgers have a strong history of honoring Latino heritage and what better way to celebrate that than through authentic, delicious food," said Jose Corugedo, CEO for Chef Merito.
