Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles is one of the best venues from which to see a professional baseball game. It has historical tributes to players such as Jackie Robinson, Roy Campenella and Sandy Koufax. There is nothing more nostalgic than eating a Dodger dog from the comfort of your seat at Dodger Stadium. The trick is often finding your seat without getting lost.
Entering the Stadium
Dodger Stadium is located at 1000 Elysian Park, Ave Los Angeles, CA 90012. Google a map to the stadium if you are unfamiliar with the downtown Los Angeles area. The stadium is just north of downtown Los Angeles off the 110 freeway at the Stadium Way exit. Follow the signs and the security guards to park you car as close to the stadium gates as you can. Get there as early as possible because there is no public transportation to and from the stadium. Plan on walking about 3/4 mile from where you park. Enter the stadium at the gate nearest your seats. The gate numbers are posted on the stadium walls. The Sunset Gate entrance is off of Sunset Blvd. and Elysian Park. The Golden State Gate is on Stadium Way and Academy Drive. The Academy Gate is located on Academy Drive. You can use the Downtown Gate off the 110 Freeway at Stadium Way.
All gates open two hours before game time.
Find your section
Find your section number on your ticket. Dodger Stadium is divided into many different levels and sections.
If you have lower-level seats your ticket might say Dugout Club seating. These seats are behind the plate and around the first and third baselines. Baseline Premium seats are just beyond the infield on the lower level. They are in the closest part of the outfield grass. Baseline Preferred seats are deeper in the outfield on the lower level. A little further into the outfield are the Baseline Field Seats.
Box VIP and MVP seats are on the second level behind the plate and down the first and third baselines. Infield box seats are next on the second tier just beyond first and third base. Field Box seats are on the second level in the outfield.
On the third level you can enjoy the view from a Loge Box VIP and MVP seat behind home plate and down the baselines. Just beyond the baselines comes the Infield Loge Box seats. Overlooking the outfield grass are the Preferred Loge Box seats. In the deepest part of the outfield on the third level are the Loge Box seats.
Dodger Stadium offers luxury suites on the Press Box Level. The Press Box is on the fourth level just behind home plate. Down first and third base are the luxury suites. Club seats extend along the outfield grass on the fourth level.
Behind the plate on the fifth level is the Infield Reserve Section. Lower Reserve tickets are on the fifth level overlooking the outfield grass.
Top deck seats overlook home plate on the sixth level. Reserve seats are on the sixth level overlooking the outfield.
Finding your seat
Understand your seat assignment by reading your ticket carefully. The Section number will have a number and a section name. For example, Section: 7 DUG would be a Dugout seat in section seven. Park and enter behind home plate. Look at the signs on the wall indicting the section numbers. Find Number 7 in the area labeled Dugout Section. Enter through the gate and show your ticket to the security guard. Proceed down the row and look for letters HH on the side of the seats on the outside of the row. Now check your ticket for the correct seat numbers. Locate your seat number on the back of your seat and sit down. Enjoy the game.
If you find someone in your seat, contact an usher and he will clarify the seating assignment.
