Dodgers to retire pitcher Fernando Valenzuela’s No. 34

The Los Angeles Dodgers will retire pitcher Fernando Valenzuela’s No. 34 jersey during a three-day celebration this summer.

Valenzuela was part of two World Series champion teams, winning the 1981 Rookie of the Year and Cy Young awards. He was a six-time All-Star during his 11 seasons in Los Angeles from 1980 to 1990.

He will be honored Aug. 11-13 when the Dodgers host Colorado.

Valenzuela will join Pee Wee Reese, Tommy Lasorda, Duke Snider, Gil Hodges, Jim Gilliam, Don Sutton, Walter Alston, Sandy Koufax, Roy Campanella, Jackie Robinson and Don Drysdale with retired numbers.

“Being part of the group that includes so many legends is a great honor,” said Valenzuela. “But also for the fans, the support they’ve given me as a player and working for the Dodgers is also for them.”
