LOS ANGELES, Calif.--Fireworks will follow tonight's Los Angeles Dodgers-San Francisco Giants game at Dodger Stadium, resuming the team's practice ofhaving fireworks following every Friday home game after a one-season interruption.

The first 50,000 fans at the game will receive magnet schedules.

Kenny Landreaux, an outfielder on the Dodgers 1981 World Series championship team will sign autographs in Autograph Alley before the game.

Jordin Sparks, the 2007 "American Idol'' winner, will sing the national anthem.

The Dodgers opened their season Thursday by defeating the World Series champion Giants, 2-1.
