I heard that Dodger Stadium was designed to be expandable to 85,000 seats, simply by enclosing the outfield pavilion. The Dodgers have not pursued such a project. That expansion is impossible and is considered a pipedream.

It's not impossible, just unnecessary.

The three decks would be extended all the way around the outfield.

They tried that before with Angel Stadium of Anaheim, but a renovation project in the late 90's removed the expansion.

It was only expanded for football, and with no football team the expansion was no longer needed.

Yeah, the Angels did it for football so the Rams could play there, then changed it back when the Rams left. The Dodgers will never expand their stadium, but when it was designed it was made for the expansion.

And also detrimental to the open-air atmosphere of baseball--just look at the Oakland Coliseum.

Also, Dodgers management has always been adamant about keeping the capacity at 56,000 throughout the history of the stadium, even after renovations.

I don't think Dodger management is so set on 56,000 as much as they're not allowed to go over that. The agreement with the neighborhood limits them to selling 56,000 tickets max. The recent renovations have actually pushed capacity over 56,000, but they don't sell more than 56,000 unless it's opening day or a playoff game.

I heard that on ballparks.com that Dodger Stadium was the cleanest ballpark in Major League Baseball. How can they keep it that way, and why can't the newer retro classic or retro modern ballparks be as clean as Dodger stadium?

Does it really matter how old it is?

If you have a good sanitation staff then thats all that matters right?

It is the cleanest, seriously. And the field is always voted "best" by players.

Hard to believe it is the 3rd oldest. It's a true "cathedral of baseball".

Kinda also looks like old Yankee Stadium in a way. Seriously compare the overhead shots of the 2 places.

Some parks "might" look similar because of their layout dictated by the field. But, if you get the chance to visit Dodger Stadium, you'll see why it is so highly regarded nation/worldwide.

Busses on the field

I just saw a Dodgers World Series DVD, and it was during the 1988 portion where I noticed the Oakland A's had 3 buses pick up the team on the warning track. It showed Jose Canseco boarding a bus in front of the 1st base dugout. Does this still exist? Do they have buses drive on the field after games? I thought that was weird.

They still can do that, but it was rare then and is now. The visiting players usually walk out of centerfield to the buses parked behind the fence and batter's eye. The only time the buses come on the field is if there are still a lot of fans around and they want to make sure the players get on the bus safely.
