With baseball season 3 weeks gone past, I’m sure there are plenty of you out there who will be making the trek towards Dodger Stadium this year. So, throughout the season, I will be providing some fun facts and tidbits about Dodger Stadium, as well as the greater Los Angeles area and Southern California, to help make your trip out here memorable. But do remember, it is your trip and what tips I give are just that. What you and your family, or buddys do is what will make this a unique exprience for you. With that, here are Drei’s fun facts for the day.
Dodger Stadium, opened in 1962, is the 4th oldest stadium in the Major Leagues, not counting RFK Stadium in DC, behind Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, and Yankee Stadium.
The Dodgers have won 5 World Series Championships in Los Angeles, 4 while at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers sweep of the Yankees in the 1963 WS would mark the only time the Boys in Blue would clinch a WS title on their home field.
Though Dodger Stadium regularly draws over 3 million fans a year, because of it’s vast capacity of 56,000, tickets for most games are actually easy to come by. The hardest tickets are against the Giants and certain promotional giveaways. Weekend games in the summer, though popular, can also be bought up to game time as well.
