All-Stars: Renovation

Dodger Stadium

Los Angeles


By James Zoltak
Dodger Stadium was supposed to have hosted the All-Star Game in July, giving Major League Baseball’s third-oldest venue a chance to show off its $100 million renovation. It will get another chance in 2022, but the project promises, the moment fans are again allowed back inside, to continue a legacy that began when the stadium opened in 1962. The renovation includes a new center-field plaza, new accessible seating, standing room platforms and bridges in the outfield pavilion, new home run seats just beyond the outfield wall, a center-field bar, and two new sports bars looking into the home and visiting bullpens. There are new linear video ribbon boards facing both the field and plaza on either side of the outfield pavilion structures and a new sound system. For fans who like a little music in addition to their baseball, a flexible stage area offers a home for special events and pre- or postgame entertainment.
