2019 Dodger Stadium parking prices were listed on the team website and, you guessed it, the prices went up for the upcoming season.
2019 pricing lists as follows:
- $17 for General Parking, when purchased in advance
- $25 for General Parking at the gate
- $40 for Lots F, K, N, and B
- $45 for Lot H
This comes on the heels of seeing record prices of $40 in advance, and $60 at the gate for general parking during the 2018 World Series.
As usual, the Dodgers will continue to offer Lot 13 offsite parking admission for $5 at the gate.
But this isn’t the big news out of Dodger Stadium today…

Goodbye Plastic Straws
Chavez Ravine will no longer be giving out plastic straws to fans. Only paper straws will be available upon request.
The Dodgers will no longer serve plastic straws at Dodger Stadium. You will be able to get a paper straw if you want one.

The move is in compliance with recent legislative attempts by both the city of Los Angeles and the state of California to eliminate plastic waste.
In January 2018, California legislators proposed attaching a $1,000 fine for plastic straw use and Los Angeles City Council has already passed legislation for restaurants to only provide plastic straws to its customers upon request.
In addition, the Oakland A’s and San Francisco Giants are expected to undergo similar changes to their respective ballparks in order to comply with the new legislation.
The StubHub Center in Carson, home of the Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Galaxy, have already made the necessary shifts.
Yes, it actually could since it's a step to help save the planet. The longer the planet is around, the more world series chances they have.

It is also worth noting that plastic straws were absent from Dodgers FanFest a few weeks ago.
Most people do not sip their micheladas with straws, but the sodas truly account for a lot of plastic waste.
Yes, this is a very controversial topic for most. Just look at the ratio on Pedro Moura’s tweet. However, this is a clear step in the right direction.
