Evening at Dodger Stadium™
My brother was a long-standing and fervent fan of baseball. While, like most, he would follow particular teams with a heightened interest, he also most purely and simply loved the game. He loved its history and position as part of the American cultural landscape. He loved its ties to personal nostalgia and family eminiscence. And, he loved the immediate experience of the ballpark: the smell of the cut grass, the roar of the crowd, the taste of a hotdog and the thrill felt with the crack of the bat.
There are few ballparks more evocative of those experiences and feelings than this cathedral to America’s national pastime built and nestled just north of downtown Los Angeles. Dodger Stadium™ is a monumental edifice to everything that we all love about the game. Join with us at the Thomas Kinkade Studios as we watch the warm southern California summer sun set into the west and the stadium lights spring to life and capture the spirit of this iconic franchise. Take pride in our great county’s flag unfurled as the National Anthem echoes throughout the ballpark. Let’s all sing together: “just buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack – I don’t care if I never come back!” And, we will root for the home team and revel in our shared love of baseball and the great additions that stretch back over the decades. Play ball!

- Evening at Dodger Stadium™ depicts the Los Angeles Dodgers™ on Opening Day against their arch rivals, the San Francisco Giants™. The L.A. Dodgers have played Opening Day against the S.F. Giants seven times in the “LA era,” and ten times in the “Brooklyn era.”
- Dodger Stadium™ opened in 1962 and is the third oldest stadium in Major League Baseball behind Fenway Park™ and Wrigley Field™.
- Because of the stadium’s orientation to the setting sun, the Dodgers chose the third base dugout as their own so the setting sun would shine into the first base dugout of the visitors where it would be hotter, brighter, and more uncomfortable.
- Dodger Stadium™ overlooks downtown Los Angeles in California from the home plate side of the stadium.
- The Press Box at Dodger Stadium™ is named after longtime “Voice of the Dodgers” Vin Scully. A humble man, Scully would only let the press box be named after him if a sign was placed in the box of all the other broadcasters who had ever called a game at Dodger Stadium™.
