#24: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles Dodgers

Number of Visits: 2 (2009, 2013)

I’m sure in the ’60’s, the ballpark that sits atop Chavez Ravine was considered quite groovy. The fun colors and oddly shaped outfield roof were all the rage. However, the bright seats have now faded and the third oldest park in the majors can now use some major renovations.

The stadium sits in the middle of a giant parking lot that is nearly a mile from corner to corner. Obviously, there’s not a bar or restaurant in sight.

I found Dodger fans to be among the rudest and most disrespectful in the game. Many did not stand for the National Anthem or God Bless America. I don’t know if it’s an L.A. thing, but during both visits, fans appeared genuinely uninterested in the game.
