When I caught a game at Dodger Stadium a few years ago, I was amazed that a park built in the 1962 sported an open concourse as well. I wonder if this might have been have been a part of some post construction refurbishment. If not, it was pretty damn visionary.
If you ever are in that neck of the Southern California woods, I would highly checking out Dodger Stadium. Among other features, it offers a beautiful backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains beyond the outfield wall, something Coors Field inexplicably failed to do with the nearby Rockies.
Some time ago (~15 years) I made fun of Dodger Stadium as an old, outdated cookie cutter kind of ball park to a Dodger fan friend of mine.
He put me in my place about that. And I probably deserved it.
Was a really nice stadium. I was impressed. You guys were right about the location though. That was horrible. Absolutely nothing to do outside the stadium. Had a Pat's cheesesteak as well. It may be touristy, but it was damn good.
I wonder if Cliff Lee is second guessing his decision to leave TX for Philly. instead of an early playoffs exit, he could have had another trip to the WS with the Rangers. Philly looks tired so far this year, but they have the talent to rebound. still, I think the Rangers look like an AL champion team. Philly isn't showing that same gusto so far in this early season.
