Los Angeles Dodgers announce $100M plan for major stadium renovations

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Dodger Stadium is set to undergo a major overhaul.

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced Tuesday plans for $100 million in renovations that will take place during the offseason.

The team unveiled a whole roster of upgrades, including a new 2-acre center field plaza dedicated to pre- and postgame entertainment, as well as an open play area for kids.

Upcoming renovations to Dodger Stadium include a new center field plaza dedicated to pre- and postgame entertainment, as well as an open play area for kids.


The plaza will include a statue of Sandy Koufax, which will join a statue of Jackie Robinson already on the property.

The round of upgrades will also incorporate a new series of elevators and bridges connecting different parts of the stadium.

"I don't know any element that doesn't excite me because we did spend more than a year thinking this through," said Dodgers President Stan Kasten. "I think the ability to have so many different things in one space, there's not one thing that will work for every fan. That's why we have 10 different things that should speak to all of our fans."

They're also expected to extend the protective netting for next season after a teenage fan was struck by a foul ball during a game last month.

The Dodgers also revealed the official logo for the 2020 MLB All-Star Game - the first to be held at the stadium in 40 years.

The announcement comes on the same day the Dodgers open up a two-game Freeway Series against the Los Angeles Angels.

The Dodgers plan to honor late Angels pitcher, Tyler Skaggs, before the game and during the game with a raffle benefiting the Tyler Skaggs Baseball Foundation.
