August 6-9, 2020 in Los Angeles

Now we get to the first of two trips in my neck of the woods. I decided to add Dodger Stadium to this list for three major reasons. First, the series from August 6-9 takes place on a weekend, which means the atmosphere in the ballpark will be much stronger than it is on a weeknight. This also means you have more time to get to the stadium, park and find your seat without dealing with rush-hour traffic in Los Angeles.

Second, Dodger Stadium will play host to the 2020 All-Star Game in July for just the first time since 1980. I am looking forward to seeing the different signage and decorations the Dodgers put up to mark the occasion.

Third, in anticipation of the All-Star Game, the Dodgers announced major structural changes to Dodger Stadium. This is huge news for baseball fans in Southern California because it means that the outfield bleacher sections will have an expanded entry plaza and be connected to the rest of the stadium.

At the moment, there’s not much to do or see outside of finding the correct entry level at Dodger Stadium and watching the game from your seat. These upgrades will create an entirely new experience that Mets fans can take advantage of during this weekend series.
