If you remember last year, the Dodgers hosted drive-in parking lot viewing over the course of the team’s 2020 World Series run.
Jon Chapper with the team says they’re going to host viewing parties this year in their new centerfield plaza whenever the team is away.
Says Chapper, "We’ve got brand new LED screens out there. There are new concessions."
Chapper says they’ll let 2,000 fans in so seating is limited. Tickets are $70 which Chapper says, "includes a $20 food and beverage credit you can use at the concession in the plaza."
For that $70 ticket, you also get the replica of the Dodgers 2020 World Series ring. You can get tickets here.
