Dodger Stadium continues to undergo enhancements in 2017. The changes are designed to touch and positively impact every visitor to Dodger Stadium.
2017 Upgrades and Amenities include:
The first sculpture in Dodger Stadium history, appropriately depicting Jackie Robinson, will be unveiled on the left field reserve level plaza area (Lot B) on April 15, marking the 70th anniversary of Robinson creaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball.
The reconfiguring of the ring road in centerfield has been enlarged in order to improve circulation and create a new premium lot "H" between the Historic 76 Station and the centerfield transit road.
New premium seating has been installed outside of the Dugout Club and Baseline Clubs. USB power will be installed in each seat during the 2017 season. These seats, located in original foul territory at Dodger Stadium, are now blue in color to match the field wall from 1962.
In an effort to continually improve access to Dodger Stadium and improve ridership on the METRO bus lines service, the pedestrian loading area in centerfield has been reconfigured to provide a dedicated area with uniform pedestrian lighting.
As part of Dodger Stadium's continued commitment to greening the surrounding park, additional landscaped islands of olive trees, palm trees and the native succulent plants of the region have been planted at either end of the transit street.
Levy and the Los Angeles Dodgers have created an exciting new menu that truly celebrated the Pride of Baseball. New Executive Chef Ryan Evans plans to take the game day experience to a new level for all Dodger fans with new fan favorites and authentic local flavors.
This season the Dodgers are excited to welcome the new Budweiser-branded concession stand located down the third base line. This Bud & Burgers stand will serve our newest culinary creation inspired by our fans: the Dodger Burger. With the world famous Dodger Dog grilled to perfection on top of a delicious patty, this is a can't-miss item for the 2017 season! In addition, Budweiser has created a simulated batting experience by the left field Bud bar that encourages fans to swing for the fences at every home game.
Dodger fans will enjoy the new King's Hawaiian Grill, opening in the Left Field Plaza, where they can enjoy a special menu featuring a pulled pork Dodger Dog, pulled pork sliders, lava wings, smoked pork nachos and much more.
The popular Think Blue BBQ has come to the Reserve Level in right field, adjacent to the kid's area.
Dodger fans will see a number of new memorabilia displays including a gallery adjacent to the Vin Scully Press Box including Vin Scully's headset and other objects from his broadcast booth during his final season with the Dodgers. The club level is also home to a new display case at the left field entry that features game worn jerseys from Dodger greats including Jackie Robinson, Sandy Koufax and others. Fans with tickets on field, loge and club and anyone with a season ticket can access these areas.
The right field baseline club, also known as the Ketel One Club, is home to a display featuring game used bats from nearly every All-Star that has worn the uniform of the Los Angeles Dodgers. This display is open to anyone in the right field concourse and faces the bullpen overlook in right field. You do not need a ticket to the baseline club to view this display.
Groups will find new areas to enjoy Dodger baseball. A new mini-suite has been constructed inside the Stadium Club on the right field club level to host groups of 15. The loge level party boxes, which can host groups of 12 to 16, have been given a new look and improved surroundings. Areas on the field level concourse near each foul pole have been created for groups of 15 to 60. The areas have standing room, bar stools and high top tables.
All of the suites on the club level have also been renovated, as has the Lexus Dugout Club dining area. Members of the Dugout Club will find new food items dotting the menu throughout the season.

As part of the upgrades, the Dodgers are going green, instituting many measures toward being energy efficient. Included in the construction was installation of new water valves, low-flush fixtures, waterless urinals, hand-driers to eliminate paper waste, automatic faucets to control water flow and new power and lighting energy-efficient systems.
The team added fan services representatives on all levels as part of its commitment to providing the best customer service in sports.
Many of the Dodgers' historical items will be displayed for the first time. Fans will be able to enjoy Dodger memorabilia and artifacts such as MVP awards, Cy Young awards and Gold Gloves awarded to Dodgers. Some items are on display during games and others will be available during day tours of the stadium: dodgers.com/stadiumtours.
Video and Ribbon Boards
New High Definition video boards in left field and right field are the first 10mm 1080p light emitting diode (LED) displays in MLB. While the new scoreboard structures are 22 percent larger, the active viewing area of both video boards is 66 percent larger than before. Existing message boards, including ribbon boards at the Loge level and outfield wall, were replaced with the new technology as well. The unique hexagon shape of both scoreboards has been restored.
A new sound system directed to each seating section will minimize echoes and sound migration outside the stadium and will provide for a much more enjoyable audio experience for fans as they listen to live and recorded music and announcements before, during and after games.
A state-of-the-art Wi-Fi network and cellular antenna system to support cell-phone and internet connectivity from mobile devices will enhance the ability of fans and media covering games at Dodger Stadium to communicate. The project was part of a partnership with Major League Baseball Advanced Media and is expected to be completed by June. An entirely new electrical power grid with seven new substations was added to support these technologies.
