January update. First exhibition game vs Angels is March 23, Opening Day vs Giants is March 26

Looks like the new elevator towers are just about complete. Also interesting that there appears to be additional work being done on the reserve level exterior concourse on the third base side.

From plans shown during city planning hearings, they are adding escalators between the different levels and moving the fences out to create a more secure area around the stadium.

About six weeks until the first exhibition game vs the Angels.

MLB Cathedrals tweeted this comparison shot between a 1962 pre-game scene and a 2019 one, showing how little has changed.

Lots of updates and looks:

She says some of the stuff will be delivered and installed in the two weeks before the season starts so it's going to be tight. The outfield will not be open for the final exhibition games against the Angels days before the season, but they insist it will be ready for Opening Day.

Re-posting the video above, with the new renderings also released today




Quote:
Centerfield Bar: The most visible change to Dodger Stadium’s postcard view is the replacement of the tarp that stood above centerfield. The new centerfield structure will offer a bar and viewing deck with a game perspective that was previously only enjoyed by way of television cameras.

Complete Stadium Circulation: Fans will be able to enter through any stadium gate (regardless of seat location), and now have easy access to the entire stadium. To improve overall circulation and access for all fans, the team has added five new elevators (two in both the Right and Left Field Plaza, one behind in Centerfield) and four new escalators that ring the stadium. Additionally, new bridges will link the Pavilions to the main seating bowl with easy access to all levels.

Home Run Seats: Two rows of “home run seats” have been added to the front of both outfield pavilions. These seats will be barstool style with drink rails and will include in-seat food and beverage service.

Fan Areas: The centerfield improvements will house many new spaces that enhance the fan experience, including shaded areas where fans can watch the game while enjoying food and beverages, large screens for game viewing, interactive entertainment and several kids areas.

Indoor Pavilion Bars: Underneath both outfield pavilions, the Dodgers have created bars that will be accessible to all fans. Each will be uniquely themed and have an eye-level view into the adjacent bullpens.

New Food Offerings: The Centerfield Plaza and bar areas will offer fans a wide array of new food options, which will be announced as Opening Day approaches. Beyond traditional concession stands, the Dodgers will utilize several vehicles from past eras to provide unique food and beverage options in the Centerfield Plaza, with a vintage Dodger ice cream truck and fire truck (featuring micheladas). The team has also commissioned a third food truck, which will house rotating options.

Legends of Dodger Baseball presented by Bank of America: The Legends of Dodger Baseball will have a permanent home inside the Centerfield Plaza presented by Bank of America. These Legends plaques will join other displays honoring the Dodgers’ rich history, including the relocated Jackie Robinson statue and a Sandy Koufax statue, which will be unveiled during the season.

Spectrum SportsNet LA set: SportsNet LA will have a set in the Centerfield Plaza, allowing fans to interact with the network’s pre- and post-game broadcasts.

Janet Marie Smith also recently tweeted the old outfield benches are being repainted.

Repainting the bleacher seats?????

I won't criticize the Dodgers for the business side or the 7 straight division titles.

But what happened to the new parking structures built into the hillsides, the new development on the old parking lots, improvements in connection to Union Station or other MTA stations?

I had high hopes when Smith started but as of now I would say she (and the rest of the development group) are underperforming.

At this point I think I'm more interested if they can get this done in time than the finished product.

Late February update:

Also you may notice from the videos and photos that many of the seats along the baselines and behind home plate have been re-colored from blue and yellow to gray. This was because of player complaints of being able to see the white ball against the pastel colored seats, especially the yellow ones. The gray seats are hoped to create the necessary contrast, similar to a "batter's eye", but for fielders.

I guess you can't change the colors based on which team is up?

The rules on that are fairly specific, ever since the Astros got caught reversing the direction of the airflow in the Astrodome, depending on which team was up. Good thing the Astros learned their lesson about cheating ....
