Dodgers' Stan Kasten Gives Details Of Planned Ballpark Renovation
Dodgers CEO Stan Kasten on Friday discussed an "aggressive off-season plan to respond" to Dodger Stadium's "most pressing current needs." Kasten: "Back-of-the-house stuff – power, water, clubhouse, batting cages for both teams. In the receiving bowls we're going to have more restaurants and bars, more hanging-out areas, gathering areas like you see in parks. Our sound system, our video system, kids' areas – those are the kind of things we're looking at." However, renovation plans "might also be on hold while Mark Walter and his Guggenheim Group explore the possibility of bidding on AEG" (LATIMES.com, 10/12).
