Dodger Stadium Walter O'Malley The Official Website



Other Stadiums



  Dodger Stadium opened its doors on April 10, 1962. Walter O’Malley’s “dream stadium” was widely accepted and became a hit with the fans from the beginning. For more than 40 years, Dodger Stadium has become an international destination for tourists from around the world. Through the years, Dodger Stadium has been praised for its uniqueness, striking architectural design and beauty. Its classic lines and setting has provided a timeless look and elegance. Dodger Stadium was only the second privately-financed baseball stadium built in the 20th Century and the first since Yankee Stadium in 1923. Besides showing Dodger Stadium, listed below are the ballparks built just prior to, and just following its opening. Many of these facilities are no longer in use:
