A year after spending $100 million in significant renovations for Dodger Stadium, no real plans have been announced about upgrades for the upcoming season.
Changes to the Dodger clubhouse and concourse throughout the Stadium made it feel modern last season, but still kept the old-time feel at Chavez Ravine. However, according to Bill Shaikin of the LA Times, upgrades have started for next season to help keep that feel alive for next season:
The Dodgers are introducing lookout spots above the bullpens next season, enabling fans to consume a Dodger dog or a drink while watching Clayton Kershaw or Kenley Jansen warm up. The lookouts are the focal point of a modest Dodger Stadium expansion beyond the foul poles in left and right fields.
The area that they’re now opening has been restricted to fans and it sounds like management is planning on adding concession and merchandise stands in those places. It’s a very cool concept the Dodgers are introducing as it’s always cool to see pitchers warm-up before a game or an inning they’re slated to pitch. Along with these upgrades, they will also upgrade the visiting clubhouse, which has been cramped for the last several years.
Exciting times are ahead at Dodger Stadium and it sounds like the Guggenheim Group is exploring every possible way to enhance the experience during a Dodger game.
