You might call yourself a Dodger fan. But have you stepped into the dugout or seen the World Series trophies? The opportunity is there for the taking with a behind-the-scenes tour. Dodger Stadium, the second-oldest park in the National League and more than 30 years older than the third-oldest NL stadium, remains a beautiful venue with an unmatched history.
The tour lasts nearly an hour and a half and is offered three times daily at 10:00 and 11:30 in the morning, and 1:00 in the afternoon. There’s also a pregame tour starting three hours before the first pitch on most game days. The tours are offered year-round except holidays.
The festivities start at the Top of the Park with a stop in the Tommy Lasorda room to view a highlight film about the venue’s proud history. Tours may have visits to the Dodger dugout, the playing field, and a look inside the visitor’s clubhouse.
Other gems normally hidden from public view include the exclusive Lexus Dugout Club featuring the team’s World Series Trophies, and plaques from the Most Valuable Player, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year Awards. Then the tour group makes its way to the Vin Scully Press Box where fans might get a glimpse of Fernando Valenzuela, organist Nancy Bea Hefley and even Scully himself.
Continuing on, groups will head to the new outfield plazas and bullpen overlook bars. The tour allows for early access to the Field Level to view batting practice. A full schedule of the tours can be found online at Dodgers.com/tours, where tickets can be purchased, $20 for adults and $15 for kids 14 and under, seniors, and military personnel.
Private tours for groups of 20 or more are also available for teams of fans, school field trips, corporate outings, and convention groups.
