Dodgers To Relocate Visitor Clubhouse, Add New Outfield Bullpen Seating Areas
The Dodgers have submitted plans to the city of L.A. for the second phase of their Dodger Stadium renovation plan, which is set to be completed in time for the '14 season-opener on April 4. The plans include relocating the visiting clubhouse to an area near the visiting team dugout at field level so that all visiting team areas are in a single new area adjacent to the batting tunnel. The Dodgers also will expand field-level entrances, which will enable all fans with pavilion, dugout, field, loge and club tickets to enter via the north side of the ballpark. These new entries will house new team stores and concessions. The plans also include seating and lounging areas at bars and drink rails overlooking the bullpens in the outfield, and an enhancement of the ballpark's landscaping to triple the amount of in the outfield (Dodgers).
