The Dodgers hired Janet Marie Smith as senior vice president of planning and development, and she will oversee upgrades to Dodger Stadium, which include expanded clubhouses and more bars and restaurants.
The Dodgers sold 52K more tickets for their first 6 home games than they did in 2012. Also, it appeared to be more blue and yes, while fans will always want the best for their team, a sense of pride is back at Dodger Stadium.
The massive Dodger Stadium offseason upgrades, which cost well north of $100 million, get their first dry run on Friday night against the Angels. Now it's just a matter of making sure everything is finished.
The planned physical upgrades to Dodger Stadium will be ready by Friday, Mar. 29, when the Dodgers host the Angels in the Freeway Series. But the upgrades to the cell service and Wi-Fi capabilities won't be completed until later.
