The event marked Riize’s first performance at Dodger Stadium and came on the heels of their successful Riize Fan-Con titled “Riizing Day” at the Peacock Theater in Los Angeles on Monday. The group’s presence added an international flair to the festivities, showcasing the global appeal of K-pop.

The pre-game performance by Riize was met with enthusiasm from fans, who danced and cheered along to their hit songs like “Get a Guitar.” Meanwhile, Major League Baseball (MLB) shared a TikTok video capturing the excitement of the event, highlighting Riize’s growing popularity beyond their home country.


“Thanks for a great performance, RIIZE!” MLB wrote.

In addition to Riize’s performance, the evening featured cross-cultural musician Luna Lee in the Centerfield Plaza and Torrance-born DJ/record producer Tokimonsta throwing the ceremonial first pitch.

Riize also had the opportunity to meet with Miggy and Yoshinobu, as captured by MLB’s TikTok. Riize commented, “Thank you for having us!! Go Dodgers!!” and the Dodgers replied, “Thank you for hanging with us!”
