Dodgers Stadium DN

Since opening in 1958, Dodger Stadium has been the home of several Hall of Famers, World Series wins, and historic moments and games.

For a second consecutive year, Dodger Stadium made the list of the most-Instagrammed locations. After ranking eighth in 2013, Chavez Ravine checks in at second place behind Disneyland, according to USA Today:

1. Disneyland, Anaheim, California
2. Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
3. Times Square, New York, New York
4. Siam Paragon, Bangkok, Thailand
5. Gorky Park, Moscow, Russia
6. Musée du Louvre, Paris, France
7. Red Square, Moscow, Russia
8. Madison Square Garden, New York, New York
9. Yankee Stadium, New York, New York
10. The Dubai Mall, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The Dodgers were the first team in 2014 to reach 2 million in attendance, doing so by early July. According to ESPN, the Dodgers drew over 3.7 million in home attendance, which ranked first overall.

After a slow start to the year, the Dodgers finished with a mediocre 45-36 record at Chavez Ravine; however, it served as the backdrop for memorable moments.

Clayton Kershaw routinely dominated opposing batters, including a historically great performance that saw him throw his first career no-hitter. Yasiel Puig also stood out under the lights at Dodger Stadium with a handful of impressive throws, catches and home runs.

One year after clinching the NL West title in Arizona, the Dodgers clinched the division at home against the San Francisco Giants with Kershaw on the mound. Along with on-the-field moments, fans throughout the stadium erupted in celebration when the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup.

Although it may seem improbable, with a successful season in 2015, Dodger Stadium could contend for the most-Instagrammed location next year.

    Very interesting indeed. – But, Dodger Stadium certainly did not open in 1952. The Dodgers were still in Brooklyn then for another 6 years.

      Where did you read it opened in 1952 Sir?
      The story cites it was opened in 1958, which I believe is true

        I read it in original posting. See comment above by Michael Brown that it was a typo.
