Dodgers' Kasten Says Ticket Prices Will Not Increase For '13; Attendance Bump Significant

EXTREME MAKEOVER, CHAVEZ EDITION: In L.A., J.P. Hoornstra reports the Dugout Club seats at Dodger Stadium, where "high-rollers cozily sit in the background of home plate and both dugouts, were covered with gray tarps Thursday." Usually, this "serves as a fixed image for the solemn scene between baseball seasons." But this year, it "hinted at a big rumbling -- the expected renovations of the undersized clubhouses, and the installation of a new visitor's batting cage, underneath the seats." A formal announcement is "expected within a week or two." Kasten said, "Out in the seating bowl we're going to have more bars, more restaurants, more hanging-out areas, more gathering areas like you see in parks" (L.A. DAILY NEWS, 10/5).
