Talk about great seats. However, something to keep in mind, Dodgers policy states there will be no fireworks after the game if the game goes past 10:59pm and fans will not be allowed onto the field if the game goes past 10:45pm.

Dodger Stadium | Must Do

Check out the Retired Numbers known as the “Ring of Honor”

The Dodgers have some of the richest history in the MLB, and they’re proud of it. If you visit the “Top of the Park” located on the top deck, you’ll find the Retired Numbers Plaza. You’ll find giant numbers honoring all of the Dodger greats who have had their numbers officially retired by the team. They are:

  • 1 – Pee Wee Reese
  • 2 – Tommy Lasorda
  • 4 – Duke Snider
  • 19 – Jim Gilliam
  • 20 – Don Sutton
  • 24 – Walter Alston
  • 32 – Sandy Koufax
  • 39 – Roy Campanella
  • 42 – Jackie Robinson
  • 53 – Don Drysdale

Visit the Jackie Robinson Statue

Jackie Robinson is proudly known throughout baseball to be the man who broke the color barrier. Jackie Robinson is the only player in history to have his number retired by the entire league. The statue of Robinson stealing home was unveiled on 4/15/2017 (Jackie Robinson Day) and can be found in the Left Field Reserve Plaza. The Dodgers chose to place the statue here because it is the gate that sees the most fans enter the ballpark.

Dodger Stadium | Transportation and Parking

Keep in mind that LA Traffic is REAL! If you’re coming from out of town, leave yourself an hour longer than you initially think you’ll need. There’s nothing worse than missing part of a game or missing out on something that you wanted to do before the game due to sitting in traffic. Better to get there way early and pass the time at a nearby bar or restaurant.

To avoid the hassles of driving and parking yourself, the Dodger Stadium Express provides free transportation for fans with a Los Angeles Dodgers game ticket at two convenient locations – Union Station or the South Bay

If you plan to drive, use the Scott Avenue gate entrance on the west side of the stadium. This is one of Dodgers fan’s best-kept secrets and helps you avoid the nightmarish, more crowded gates. It’s no wonder people are deterred, there’s usually signage indicating the road is closed or for local traffic only. Don’t be fooled though, you’re allowed to be there, just keep it on the DL so we can all enjoy the reprieve from usual game day parking traffic for years to come.

Official Dodger Stadium Lots

General parking for automobiles and motorcycles is $17 in advance and $25 at the gate.

Preferred parking is $40 in advance and $50 at the gate.

For only $5 (in advance or upon arrival), purchase parking for Lots 13 and 14. These first-come, first-serve lots are located offsite on Stadium Way – between Elysian Park Avenue and the 110 – and allow for easy entrance and exit. Note that there is an uphill walk to the stadium from these lots, of approximately 10 to 15 minutes. A free shuttle is available for fans with disabilities, call Fan Services (323) 224-2611.

Off-Site / Free Parking Options

You actually have a fair chance of coming across free parking near Dodger Stadium. This is due to the fact that free parking will usually require a walk “up the hill”. Free parking can be found along Stadium Way and Sunset Ave.

Uber & Lyft

If you’d rather not drive, Uber and Lyft are great options for getting to and from Dodger Stadium. Uber is the official rideshare company endorsed by the Dodgers, so you’ll see their logo everywhere. Don’t worry, Lyft is still allowed to pickup and drop off at the ballpark. In fact, you may be better off calling a Lyft since everyone else will be staring at Uber signage all night.

Drivers know to pick up up in the official rideshare lot, Lot 11. Don’t be afraid to call your car as you’re walking out of the park. you’ll be waiting on it for awhile. You may want to consider heading over to a nearby bar to wait out the post-game rush.

If you’re new to Uber, you can use this link to get a discount on your first few rides.

Dodger Stadium | Best Seats

Best Seats for Dodger History

The Kirk Gibson Home Run Seat was the first seat at Dodger Stadium to be marked in tribute to a historic event. Seat 88, Row D in Section 302 of the Right Field Pavilion is painted blue and adorned with Gibson’s painted signature to commemorate where his historic walk-off home run in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series landed. It’s definitely worth taking a stroll by seat 88 before or after the ballgame. Gibson’s seat usually sells out for the entire season before Opening Day. It’s a great piece of baseball history to see. If you manage to snag the pair of seats, you’ll be happy to know that $200 of ticket price goes to fight Parkinson’s, which is what Gibson’s foundation is focused on.

Best Seats for Game Views

Even with a capacity of 56,000, Dodger Stadium has very few obstructed views. If you choose covered seats to battle the sun, you may find that you lose the ability to see fly balls and the outfield video boards. This usually only happens if you are sitting far back in the covered portions.

Best Seats for Shade

If you’re attending a day game, your best bet for shade will be along the third base side. Specifically, look for tickets in rows U-X on the Field Level. The further back you sit in the third base Field Level sections, the more protection the overhang provides. Just keep in mind that sitting too far back in these sections may obstruct your view of fly balls in the outfield. If you’re looking to stay out of the sun, avoid seats on the first base side on the Field Level and nearly all of the Reserve Level sections.

Best Seats for Foul Balls

Looking to catch a foul ball at Dodger Stadium? According to foulballz.com, your best shots are in sections 18-28 on the third base side and 19-28 on the first base side.

Dodger Stadium | Ballpark Food

The Must Have: The Dodger Dog

The Dodger Dog, famously known and around since 1962, is a 10 inch pork weiner wrapped in a steamed bun, served plain (although you can load it up at the condiment bar if you’d like). You can find them all over the ballpark and there are two separate lines: steamed or grilled. FYI, the grilled dogs are considered the “classic” version. I mean, if you don’t have a Dodger Dog at Dodgers Stadium, did you even go? You can find Dodger Dogs all over the park.

Speaking of hot dogs, if you would like to pay homage to where it all started, get yourself a Brooklyn Dodger Dog. It’s similar to a Dodger Dog, but features a slightly different sausage with a “snappier” casing, which some people argue make this version better. We say, have both and decide for yourself.

 

Something Special: Chicken & Waffle Sammy

Spicy chicken, bacon, and maple syrup sandwiched between two Belgium waffles…topped off with powdered sugar. Sweet and spice, and everything right will ballpark food. Find it in Reserve section 12 and Field section 8.

 

The Challenge: Coca-Cola All You Can Eat Pavilion

If you’re really hungry, or just love a good challenge, buy yourself a ticket to the Coca-Cola All You Can Eat Right Field Pavilion. They run about $30 and you’ll have access to an unlimited supply of peanuts, nachos, popcorn, Dodger Dogs and soft drinks. Load up!

 

Vegetarian and Vegan Options at Dodger Stadium

Lucky you, you’re in LA! You’ll find Beyond Meat burgers and sausages in many field sections (including 10, 22, and 311). It’s also available in top deck sections 5 and 6. If you’re in the mood for something a little fancier, you can find vegan tacos in sections 252 and 741. You’ll also find tempeh nachos in the Right Field Plaza. The Dodgers have even devoted an entire food stand (Plant Powered) to vegan food in Field Section 47. There, you’ll find burgers, loaded fries, nachos, and even a meatball sub.

Dodger Stadium | Surrounding Area

El Compadre

Well-known Echo Park neighborhood Mexican restaurant

Philippe the Original

LA institution since 1908. Famous for French Dip sandwiches. Family friendly.

The Short Stop

Classic dive bar, perfect for a beer before or after the game. Open late!

Button Mash

Restaurant with vintage arcade. Great for groups with vegetarians or vegans. Open late!

Bars and Restaurants

Let us preface this by saying, if you don’t plan on eating your weight in Dodger Dogs, peanuts and nachos while you’re at the game, you’re doing yourself a disservice. That said, there are several places close-by to grab a beer and a bite to eat before you head to the stadium. Or, if you’re coming in from out of town and looking for a great brunch spot or need to get your Mexican food fix, we’ve got you covered.

El Compadre | 1449 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026 | Website | Menu | Click to Call
El Compadre in Echo Park is a well-known neighborhood Mexican restaurant that is consistently good and features a full bar and nightly live music. It’s super close to Dodger Stadium which makes it a great option to eat and drink with fellow fans before walking to a game. Try one of their famous flaming margaritas and anything that comes with their mole, you can thank us later.

Philippe the Original | 1001 N Alameda St, Los Angeles, CA 90012 | Website | Menu | Click to Call
Philippe’s is basically an LA institution (it’s been there since 1908) and a must have if you’re in the area. Located just on the edge of Chinatown, they are known for their French dip sandwiches but have a pretty extensive menu, including breakfast if you can get there before 10:30am. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. If you stop in before a game, keep in mind that you’re still a car ride (or 30 minute walk) from the ballpark. This is a family-friendly place.

The Short Stop | 1455 Sunset Blvd #3457, Los Angeles, CA 90026 | Click to Call
The Short Stop is a classic dive bar, and is the perfect place to have a quick beer before or after the ballgame. It’s a short 15 minute walk from the park. They’re also open until 2am, which makes it the perfect place to wait out traffic after a game. You’ll also find a lively dance floor and cheap drinks. Typically, they open at 5, but go out of their way to open 2 hours before any Dodger game!

Button Mash | 1391 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026 | Website | Click to Call
Part restaurant, part vintage arcade, this family-friendly restaurant is a 10 minute walk to the ballpark. If you’re traveling with a vegetarian or vegan, this is a great option for your entire group. During the week, they open at 5pm (closed Monday) and during the weekend at 1pm. They stay open late, so another good option for a post game brew.

Local Attractions
