Watch: Dodger Stadium Concourse Renovations Unveiled Ahead of 2020
On Tuesday afternoon at Dodger Stadium, MLB, the Dodgers, and the city of Los Angeles unveiled the logo for the 2020 All-Star Game. Along with the logo, the Dodgers and the city of LA also officially unveiled their plan to upgrade and renovate Dodger Stadium during the upcoming off-season.
It’s a bold undertaking. Watch the video, hosted by the legendary Vin Scully, below.
Per the official release from the Dodgers:
The new two-acre Centerfield plaza to include Sandy Koufax statue, unique food offerings, retail space, and entertainment and kids area.
Dodger Stadium last hosted the All-Star Game in 1980, so this is a very necessary face lift for the venue that’s currently in it’s 57th year of operation.
Expanding on the upgrades, they will include, but are not limited to:
- Creation of a centerfield plaza
- Pavilion renovations
- New elevators and bridges
- New sound system
- Sandy Koufax Statue
From team President Stan Kasten:
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.

What are you most excited about for the upcoming new Dodger Stadium?
Why is Peterson batting lead off ??? My 80 year understanding is that lead off should be a high % on base batter for middle RBI batters to drive. Not a homer or K swinger.
I concur. People now think it doesn’t matter because the leadoff hitter potentially only leads off once a game but they completely overlook the fact that they ALWAYS come up ahead of the heart of the order regardless of whether they leadoff an inning. So It’s important they do get on base a lot
Who do you both suggest in the one slot?
