Dodger Stadium is the third oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball behind Boston's Fenway Park and Chicago's Wrigley Field, but the team invested in several upgrades over the past two seasons.
Dodger Stadium Upgrades:
- Expansion of the entries at the field level, enabling all fans with pavilion, dugout, field, loge and club tickets to enter at entrances in the north side of the stadium.
- Two 25,000-square foot plazas in right and left field. A fenced walkway will enable fans to move between the right and left field plazas.
- Seating and lounging areas at bars and drink rails overlooking the bullpens in the outfield.
- A dedicated pedestrian entrance at the stadium's main entrance at Sunset Boulevard, with new lighting, designed to encourage fans to use parking lots 13 and 14 along Stadium Way and the route 2 and 4 buses along Sunset Boulevard.
- A team store in the left field plaza; a New Era cap store in the right field plaza; areas to buy Hello Kitty merchandise in both outfield plazas; a Nike store on the loge level; Majestic jersey stores in the left field reserve level and the Lexus Dugout Club lobby.
- What the team describes as a "state of the art" wireless system.
- Additional parking spaces.
- Reopening of the Scott Avenue entrance.
