“Home of the Los Angeles Dodgers”

Dodger Stadium is one of Southern California's most treasured landmarks and the 2008 baseball season will mark the Dodgers 47th year at Chavez Ravine. More than 125 million fans have visited the ballpark since it opened in 1962 awing spectators with a breathtaking view of downtown Los Angeles to the south; green, tree-lined Elysian hills to the north and east; and the San Gabriel Mountains beyond. The 56,000-seat Dodger Stadium has parking for 16,000 automobiles on 21 terraced lots adjacent to the same elevations as the six different seating levels. More than 3,400 trees cover the 300 acres of beautiful landscape, which is maintained by a full-time staff of gardeners. The Dodgers employ a full-time grounds crew and maintenance staff that keeps all aspects of the stadium in immaculate condition throughout the season making Dodger Stadium one of the best maintained facilities in the country. The Dodgers installed a brand new state-of-the-art grass field after the conclusion of the 1995 season. Prescription Athletic Turf (PAT), created and installed by the Cincinnati-based Motz Group, used the latest agronomic and engineering technology to manage field moisture through controlled drainage and irrigation. The 100,000 square feet of bermuda grass is grown on pure sand, beneath which a vacuum chamber is laid over a water-tight plastic barrier that forcibly extracts water during heavy rains. New moisture gauges monitor the field's water level in coordination with a microprocessor that controls drainage functions. A computer controller has the ability to reverse the scenario and subirrigate when the sand's moisture reading drops below the optimal level. Clearly, the changes have paid off, as the Dodger Stadium field was named the best in baseball by Sports Illustrated in 2003 in a poll of Major League players. Of the responses, 23.2 percent of players rated Dodger Stadium as the best-quality playing field, more than twice as many as any other stadium.

I visited here last year during the playoffs when the Dodgers were playing in New York. Got to see some of the stadium but due to it not being used that day, a lot of it was only open for people who work there and for people taking the tour. A couple guys who worked there let my friend and I in, which was rad and we got to see the view from the top of the upper deck, and it looks like there's not a bad seat in the whole place. Definitely wanna see this place when there's a game being played here though. One of the few remaining classics.

One of the best places to watch a baseball game in America! Not a modern stadium, but very charming. Great temperate breezy weather, and amazing views of the mountains. Very laid back but passionate fans.
