Dodger Stadium is not a big pond after Hilary despite a viral aerial shot

Hey, what’s going on? John W. Davis here. Welcome to 4K Virtual Walks. We are back.
We are at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Oh, just take a look. There’s the LA
and here’s a look at Dodger Stadium. Let’s see what we can see.
So, they have a beautiful mural. Right now, we’re near the Wrightfield Loads level
and from here you can either go
you know to the outfield or
down the first baseline but hey, Dodger Stadium.
Here’s an exclusive look inside Dodger Stadium right now.
They’re getting the field ready. They’ll be playing baseball here fairly soon.
And so, if you’ve never been in Dodger Stadium, it’s a great place to watch a baseball game.
I personally have never sat in the outfield. That’s something I’m looking forward to doing
at some point.
But there’s not many stadiums like it.
So, I’m actually at Dodger Stadium right now to prepare for the LA Marathon
which will be on Sunday, March 20th and there you can see there’s the festival for the marathon but
overlooking the bullpen.
Yeah, welcome to Dodger Stadium.
This is great. Let’s walk down a little bit.
So,
you can see the suite level up there and we’re actually in the outfield where you can see
those championships. Brooklyn Dodgers, 55. LA Dodgers, 1959. LA Dodgers, 1963, 65, 1981,
1988 and most recently in 2020, the Dodgers won the World Series. So, they’ll be looking to,
I won’t say defend their World Series championships since Atlanta won the last time but
they’re going to be looking to get it back especially the fact that
they have one of Atlanta’s best players now reportedly, Freddie Freeman on the team. So,
the Dodgers are a stacked baseball team and hey, LA All-Star Game,
All-Star Game, MLB All-Star Game will be in LA in July
2022.
When’s the last time you saw a walking video in Dodger Stadium with no one here? Pretty cool, huh?
So, if you happen to be on this level like say 156, really good view down the first baseline
all the way to the outfield, you’ll be able to see every pitch and every play from here. So,
don’t feel like you have to just sit all the way down on the field level at Dodger
Stadium to get a good view of the action. You don’t.
So,
this is pretty cool. I don’t know if you ever noticed this but
on top of the dugout, it says welcome to Dodger Stadium.
Bienvenidos. So, it says in Spanish and I’m sure it’s Japanese as well, I would assume.
So,
let’s get out of the sun a little bit. It’s pretty sunny
and yeah, you can see this is a concrete stadium.
It’s what you would call vintage now.
When you come to Dodger Stadium, one of the things that people look forward to
are getting Dodger Dogs. So, you can find these all around the stadium.
Dodger Dog is $6.75, a Super Dodger Dog is $7.75.
You can get fries and peanuts and all of those types of things.
But you can also get things like California Pizza Kitchen. Okay.
So, something like that looks new.
Always got to honor the greats. Sandy Koufax, Jackie Robinson,
there’s a great Jackie Robinson statue outside of the stadium, outside of the outfield.
We’re almost at home plate now.
So,
there it is, Dodger Stadium. I mean, it’s got some panoramic views. You can catch a sunset from here.
We definitely stay here for a couple of days and then we’re going to head back to the stadium.
So, we’re going to head back to the stadium and then we’re going to head back to Dodger Stadium.
So, you can catch a sunset from here, but definitely stay hydrated when you’re at Dodger Stadium.
Dodger Stadium is one of the warmest parts of LA, in my personal opinion.
So, just keep that in mind, especially if you decide to sit in the outfield.
So, now we’re in section 122, almost behind home plate.
So, the stadium opened in 1962. So, in 1987, they celebrated 25 years. So,
we’re definitely getting close to, oh, this would be 60 years of Dodger Stadium in 2022.
That’s pretty cool, huh?
60 years of Dodger Stadium. That’s dope.
So, I hope you’re enjoying this Dodger Stadium walking tour.
Please like, comment, subscribe, help grow our channel. We are on our way to 1,000 subscribers.
And when we get there, we’ll be able to do a lot more walks like this.
So, right now, it says we’re 312 feet from home plate. That’s cool.
We’re going to have tap-and-go pay now at the concessions with, apparently, MasterCard.
So, that’s going to be really cool. Really important to note.
Yep. So, you get to visit the pitching cage in center field. That’s what we saw earlier.
That’s pretty cool.
But yeah, MLB All-Star 2022, right here at Dodger Stadium. It’s going to be pretty cool.
Let’s check out this mural.
I see Mookie. I see Justin Turner. I see my man, Julio Urias. And I see Clayton Kershaw. Okay.
That’s dope.
I see Mookie. I see Justin Turner. I see my man, Julio Urias. And I see Clayton Kershaw. Okay.
That’s dope.
It’s a classic stadium. Mid-century modern. All of that.
And another great thing about Dodger Stadium
are the views.
You get these panoramic, almost Vista-style views
around the stadium,
including to the south, I suppose, downtown Los Angeles, which looks really cool.
You know, on a dusk, or looks really cool at night when you’re walking out of Dodger Stadium.
So
if you’re able to walk a little bit more in this video,
I’ll show you some of those panoramic views of downtown Los Angeles.
So
if you look closely on top of those porta potties, you can start to see the U.S. Bank Building,
also the Intercontinental, two of the most famous skyscrapers in downtown Los Angeles.
It’s better for your knees.
And I want this video to serve as an introduction.
In 4k virtual walks, we’re back.
We are back, y’all.
There it is. See a little bit of that downtown Los Angeles skyline.
So a little bit of facts about the LA Marathon. So this 2022 edition will be the first time
they’ve run it in March since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. And so in 2022,
it’ll be the second time they’ve ever done a course that starts at Dodger Stadium
and then ends in Central City. So no longer are they going from the stadium to the ocean.
Now it’s the stadium to the Avenue of the Stars.
But still, I don’t know how much you know about California topography.
Still a fairly hilly course. So I wouldn’t expect any world record
times or anything like that. But, you know, that’s not necessarily what the LA Marathon is about.
It’s the LA Marathon, but honestly, it’s still
it’s the LA Marathon, but honestly, still is sort of more like a really,
really, really large community marathon of about 16,000 people running.
2,500 of them will be from this group called Students Run LA, which gets young people,
maybe underserved, at risk, gets them running, teaches them about
dedication and patience and things like that. And from that group
was born the youngest woman and youngest Latina to ever run 100 marathons,
Jocelyn Rivas, who did it last November at the LA Marathon. So I have to reach out to her and
see if she’s running again this time. But you bet. I’m sure Jocelyn will be here.
So there it is. Dodger Stadium in downtown. I mean, my goodness, that is a view.
There it is. Panoramic view, y’all.
So if you ever come up here, Team Store is up here.
It’s called the Top Deck. Get some tickets and some tours
and things like that. Like, you can tour Dodger Stadium. That’s the thing.
You’re also experiencing a virtual tour right now. So that’s a thing too.
What’s up? What’s up?
And you can tell, if you can’t tell, I’m going downhill now. So
it’s just a very hilly area. Like, this is the stadium on the hill.
A lot of parking here. Most people who come to Dodgers games probably park on property. You
don’t have to. There’s a, you know, metro bus or buses that come up here. Different things like
that. I know there was talk about building an aerial tram from downtown to Dodger Stadium.
I’m not sure what the latest on that is now. But I know that was something that was being planned.
So that could be another way to get up here.
Oh, check that out. See if we can zoom in.
See the Hollywood sign. There it is. That’s cool.
So that’s what I’m telling you. Like, you have panoramic views from Dodger Stadium. You can see
just about anything you want to see. So if you were to come over here,
they do want you to go to lot 11 for Uber pickup. So keep that in mind.
If you’re going to take rides here, that’s the lot you do it at.
So there’s different gates to get in. There’s the sunset gate down that way. A couple other ones.
If they don’t change the price on parking, parking’s not that bad either. $15-20 to park
on property.
So there’s a retired numbers monument at the top of the park.
And yeah, Hollywood sign and
then Griffith Observatory.
So thank you so much for joining me on this edition of 4K Virtual Walks. I’m your host,
John W. Davis. Please like, comment, subscribe. I’m going to give you a little bit more,
but I’ll see you in the next video. Peace.
