Dodgers Renovation News: New Elevator Up at Dodger Stadium

If you haven’t been to Dodger Stadium this off-season, you’ve probably missed some of the early looks at the renovations underway ahead of the 2020 season. In July of this year, Dodgers President Stan Kasten announced wholesale changes to the area behind the pavilions in center field that would act as an official front door to the 57 year-old stadium.

Additionally, the new two-acre center field plaza will “include a Sandy Koufax statue, unique food offerings, retail space, and entertainment and kids area.” But perhaps most importantly, the stadium will now offer more elevators around the bowl.

This is how it looks so far.

Along with the elevators — there’s another one on the third base line as well — scaffolding has been set up in the right field pavilion as the renovation moves into the next demolition phase. This is a change from the last time we were out at the stadium.

In July, Kasten had this to say on the renovation.

Dodger Stadium has always been and remains the most beautiful place ever built to play or watch a game of baseball, and these renovations will enhance every aspect of the fan experience with modern and family-friendly amenities. This latest project continues to demonstrate ownership’s commitment to give a first-class experience to the best fans in baseball.

Of course, the renovations are underway in part due to the 2020 All-Star Game, which will be hosted at Dodger Stadium for the first time since 1980. And from what we’re seeing, things seem to be on schedule for the baseball cathedral’s Hollywood facelift.

  1. Make a championship team instead you thieves no one cares about division titles and 100 wins in a division of rebuilding teams

    1. Right on, Manny. I don’t think too many care about these stadium renovations while the chances are 2020 team won’t be any better due to no impact signings and Roberts still being the manager Hopefully Dodgers may miss the PS to avoid any further October embarrassment.

        1. You just proved yourself to be a hypocrite. In a previous post you brought up politics. In case you do not realize it that is not a baseball comment.

          1. And you are still triggered by it days later. Get a life hall monitor

  2. While the ownership is putting some cosmetic changes on the stadium and extending AF the Braves are signing players that can help them win. But wait, the FO will sign a player has seen better days or will be injured before the season begins.

    1. Why, of course. This has been the standard operation of years. Spend less and make more. It’s not like it’s money out of their pockets. Where’da you think the $18./beer money goes?
