DEM BUMS' DIGS: In L.A., Bill Shaikin reported the Dodgers are "introducing lookout spots above the bullpens next season, enabling fans to consume a Dodger dog or a drink" while watching the team's pitchers warm up. The lookouts are "the focal point of a modest Dodger Stadium expansion beyond the foul poles in left and right fields." The Dodgers "would like those spaces to develop into gathering areas for fans, with concession stands to be added there and the merchandise tents to be replaced by permanent team stores" (L.A. TIMES, 1/4).
A NEW LEAF: In Toronto, Dave Feschuk reported that Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment has "filed an application to the municipal authorities to erect a monument honouring former players that will reside in or around Maple Leaf Square." The piece will "likely be rolled out as part of the club's centennial of its 1917 founding" (TORONTO STAR, 1/4).
