Dodger Stadium

Capacity: 56,000     Opened: 1962

 

Dodger Stadium has a reputation for being a pitcher’s park, so grab a Dodger dog and get ready for a duel!

 

What makes this stadium unique?

Dodger Stadium is the third oldest stadium in the country and has the largest seating capacity. Fans are welcomed up the hill by the Hollywood style “Think Blue” sign overlooking the parking lot. Strobe lights flash from the scoreboard when the team takes the field, after Dodger home runs, and after a win. The distinct wavy roofs lining the outfield pavilions and the Dodger sign atop the ten-story elevator behind home plate are two of the stadium’s most prominent features. Though Top Deck seats are a bargain, ticketholders can’t go down into the stadium and near the field for batting practice.

Transportation/Parking

LA’s public transportation is not very good, so I highly suggest renting a car (bring your navigation system to save money). Parking at Dodger Stadium is $15. Make sure you take a picture of the aisle you parked in, the parking lot is huge! If the game is sold out, there is a lot of post game traffic. Recommend hanging out in the stadium for a bit to wait it out. If you take the Metro to the Union Station stop there is a complementary shuttle to the stadium with a valid game day ticket. Without a ticket the shuttle is $1.50.
