Dodger Stadium, one of the most historic stadiums in baseball, has served as the home of the Los Angeles Dodgers since 1962. It is the third oldest ballpark behind Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. Dodger Stadium has hosted the 1980 MLB All-Star Game, as well as games of the 1963, 1965, 1966, 1974, 1977, 1978, 1981, and 1988 World Series. It was built in the Los Angeles community of Chávez Ravine, where the stadium overlooks downtown Los Angeles.

In 2008, the Dodgers announced a $500 million project to create a museum, shops, and restaurants surrounding the stadium.

Dodger Dogs


One of the tastiest treats in Major League Baseball, the Dodger Dog has been a Dodger Stadium tradition since the team's move to Los Angeles. It consists of a foot-long ballpark frankfurter wrapped in a steamed bun. It is consistantly the top selling hot dog at Major League ballparks. There are two queues for Dodger Dog vendors: steamed or grilled. The vendors of the grilled dogs locate near the back wall of the stadium so that the smoke doesn't overwhelm the baseball fans. It is also available in the "Super Dodger Dog" variation, which is made of beef rather than pork.
