I am 99% sure.
those where this year.
The construction started in the winter ..


Yeha, I'm having a hard time remembering. The new yellow/beige seats are disgusting, by the way. The so-called luxury seats down near the dugouts are puke colored.

After the 2004 season, the original 1962 dugouts were demolished and rebuilt 15 ft. closer to the diamond. 1,600 new seats were installed behind the new dugouts and along the foul-lines at the same depth as the current

you are correct sir ...

I will return to my seat. sorry to waste your time.

I think the run outburst is more due to having Derek Lowe and Odalis Perez in the top three of your rotation, and random chance, than anything else. :-b


Haha, as someone who's followed Odalis Perez extensively over his career and who has used him on his fantasy team literally forever, I can tell you for a fact that that lack of foul ground was responsible for his demise today. You see, Odalis is a very, very shaky guy. He's the last guy you'd want on the mound in a Game 7 situation. He gets angry as hell. He's stubborn as hell, too, and will not listen to the catcher at all. He's Carlos Zambrano, except he doesn't throw gas so him getting pissed off doesn't help his pitching at all. But anyway, Horacio Ramirez fouled one off of him that bounded into the Dodgers' dugout. Last year, that would've been a foulout, but it wasn't. So shaken Odalis ends up giving up a hit to Horacio Ramirez and then perturbed Odalis went downhill from there.

Basically, the key to Perez is that nothing can go wrong with him, or else he goes nuts. Literally.

Plus, his stubbornness in pitch selection really doesn't help, since he's not the most intellectual pitch selector. Tonight, he started off basically all the righty hitters with sliders inside and his first pitch was basically slider/changeup to everybody.

What are these "traditional yet modern "box" seat concept within the baseline seating area" they are referring to?

Great link. Answered my own question, too. So they just took the seating near the baseline that existed and turned them into "box style" seating that has more legroom and stuff for fans.:

"An additional aspect of the off-season construction will be improving the sightlines within the existing baseline seating sections. The club plans to introduce a "box" concept in these sections, which is a modern interpretation of a traditional ballpark element - box seating. The Dodger Stadium version will include boxes of four to eight seats enhanced by an integrated table amenity. This will also involve the removal of several rows, and roughly 500 seats from these sections creating additional legroom."


And they discuss the color changes. Don't know about y'all, but I hate the old, muted pastels or wahtever they are. I would rather have true blue seats.

I will miss all the greats on the outfield wall. Not sure why they got rid if that. To be honest though, I kind of like the changes. The all blue was dreary and boring. Who knows, maybe they will get matching Jerseys? :-]


one could only hope.

2004 600 runs at Dodger Stadium (4,860 abs), 680 away
2005 614 runs at Dodger Stadium (4,790 abs), 691 away

Not much of a spike. The run index went from 87 to 89, a 2 % increase.
