What's the objective with the current work? I've read about clubhouse renovations but didn't know it required that much digging around the lower bowl.

They're excavating the earth under those seats to be converted to usable space: larger clubhouses, batting cages, offices, training rooms and storage.

They're adding a lot more than just larger clubhouses, weightrooms, batting cages and training rooms. There are also future plans for more bars and clubs, a Dodger hall of fame and museum, more kid areas etc..

Even if all that isn't completed this offseason it's probably more cost-effective to set up the infrastructure under the seats now, rather than doing it piecemeal season-by-season.

They're basically (to use a house analogy) creating a finished basement now. Then over time, they can add what they want into the finished space over a couple of years. The total renovations will probably be phased in over 2-3 years, just like the Fenway park reno was done.

BTW, The Dodger reno is being overseen by the same person who did the Fenway and Camden Yards reno, Janet Smith.

Of course after all the work is done, capacity will probably remain at the magic number of "56,000". Some things never change.

Kasten has been quoted as saying they might be reducing capacity at some point.

The seating charts look unchanged. Are the seats that were removed in the parking lot somewhere or are brand new seats going to take their place for the '13 season?

They'll probably put everything back exactly as it was. All the seats in the stadium were replaced in 2006.

Reminds me of what the old Yankee Stadium looked like around 3 years ago.

Another goal of the Guggenheim group is to make the experience for fans and players as good as it can be.

For decades, the Dodgers have had one of the worst clubhouses in professional sports. That will no longer be the case, as serious work is being done to renovate the clubhouse before the April 1, 2013 opener.

Most of the seats have been removed down the third base line to give workers access to the area from above the current clubhouse. Dodger players will be in for a nice homecoming when they open the season. And the visiting teams will finally get a batting cage, so they won't have to walk through the Dodgers' clubhouse area and use the home team batting cage.


"That may be one of the craziest things I've ever heard of," Kasten said, "and it won't be happening anymore."

The fans will also be getting a better ballpark in which to watch games and enjoy different ways to mingle with other fans.

They'll be widening the concourses and adding more restaurants and bars — "hang-out places" Kasten calls them — and there will be free wi-fi for all. Dodger Stadium is jumping headfirst into the 21st century.

"I look back to some of the things we said at our introductory news conference," Kasten said, "and I'm very pleased to observe that we've made real progress in delivering on our commitment that we made.

"We're hard at work doing all kinds of things to make this a better stadium and a better team right now, not making the fans wait years for it to happen."

Now if they want to make their fans really ecstatic, they'll come back from Nashville with another big free agent in Dodger blue.

Some shots taken today. Would be great if someone can help figure out what's happening to the bullpen dugouts.
