Last week, I was invited to a Dodger game. It was “Matt Kemp Bobblehead Night” and I have never seen the stadium this packed. Seriously, the right field bleachers is never full! I was invited by my brother’s friend, who has primo season tickets, and I went with the two of them. You can’t ask for a better view than this…plus an aisle seat with no one sitting behind us.
The game was more of Clayton Kershaw brilliance, and it was quick! Los Angeles traffic was horrendous; it took us 1 hour and 53 minutes to drive 35 miles. I don’t remember the last time I got to a game after it had started! Then, it turns out we were only at the game for 2 hours because it moved so quickly! My brother’s friend also has a parking pass for the tiny lot right next to the stadium gate AND we parked in the very first spot, which was mysteriously unoccupied. So once the game ended, we were out of the stadium, in our car, and in a total of 3 minutes, completely off the property. It was incredible.
Before I forget, this post is about public art. Last winter, Dodger Stadium underwent a renovation to add new bathrooms, new video boards, some additional walkways, and things like that. But I have noticed they also added a lot of “designer touches.” In the middle innings, I wandered with my camera to record some of them. Enjoy.
On the Reserved Level, several supersized bobbleheads are available for photos. Yes, they actually do bobble their heads.
