LA Observed: Dodgers Stadium gets a facelift

Written by

Opened in 1962, Dodger Stadium, has a “retro-coo” feel, but it’s the third oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball. The Dodgers new owners have sunk upwards of a $100 million dollars into the stadium’s renovation.

The stadium has undergone about $100 million of improvements since last season. That’s means free Wi-Fi, bigger better bathrooms and new concessions.

KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis talked to Kevin Roderick of LA Observed about some of the changes.
