Dodgers busy improving aging stadium before season
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Having spent more than $200 million to bulk up their starting pitching this winter, the Los Angeles Dodgers are turning their attention to improving the aging stadium they've played in since 1962.
President and CEO Stan Kasten says the goal is to improve the experience for fans while preserving the history of the third-oldest ballpark in the major leagues.
Kasten unveiled the changes planned for the upcoming season on Tuesday as heavy equipment rumbled around the field.
Among the upgrades are two high-definition video boards in left and right field with the original hexagon shape of both being restored; a new sound system that will be heard on the concourses and in the restrooms; and an improved Wi-Fi and cell antenna system so fans can use their mobile devices inside the ballpark.
