After the Brooklyn Dodgers were unable to secure a new stadium in New York, the team moved to Los Angeles and in 1962 moved into the newly built (and earthquake resistant!) Dodger Stadium. Dodger Stadium is the third-oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball and has been extensively renovated, adding more comfortable seating, high definition scoreboards, and Wi-Fi access to the 55 year-old park. The stadium accommodates 56,000 fans, which gives it the largest capacity of any current Major League stadium.
Dodger Stadium is located in Chavez Ravine, a historic Los Angeles neighborhood. The stadium is built into the side of a hill and has views of downtown LA and the nearby San Gabriel Mountains. For four years between 1962 and 1965, the stadium was the home of the Los Angeles Angels in addition to the Dodgers. The Angels referred to the stadium as “Chavez Ravine” while they played there and waited for their own stadium to be built.
The 1988 World Series was last Series played in Dodger Stadium, during which the Dodgers defeated the Mets in five games. The first two games -- both won by the Dodgers -- were played in LA. The Dodgers have clinched the Series at home only once—in 1963.
The dimensions of the stadium create favorable conditions for pitchers. As a result, there have been twelve no-hitters at Dodger Stadium, three of which were thrown by Dodgers great Sandy Koufax. The most recent was by Jake Arrieta, who threw a no-hitter for the Cubs at Dodger Stadium in 2015.
More recently, Dodger Stadium was a host stadium for the 2017 World Baseball Classic. The United States defeated Puerto Rico 8-0 in the finals. The stadium has also hosted non-baseball events. Two California-based hockey teams, the Anaheim Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings, played the NHL’s first Stadium Series game outdoors at Dodger Stadium. Artists like Paul McCartney, Guns N’ Roses, and Fleetwood Mac have recently used Dodger Stadium as a concert venue.
