ESPNLA: Dodger Stadium getting a new look

High-definition video boards in left and right field that will return to the original hexagon shape. The first 10-millimeter, 1080p LED scoreboards in baseball will be 22 percent larger than the current screens.

A new sound system aimed at cutting down on echoes and controlling the sound that leaves the stadium.

Wider concourses and additional accommodations for fans in wheelchairs.

New restrooms, some with baby-changing tables. Women’s fixtures will increase 62 percent and men’s fixtures by 32 percent, with the aim to cut down on long lines.

A new home clubhouse, the first major changes to where Dodgers players dress since 1962, along with bigger weight rooms and trainers rooms.

Separate batting cages and weight rooms for visiting teams, aimed at eliminating the awkward sharing of such facilities that sometimes led to tension before or after games.

Bullpen overlooks, allowing fans to watch pitchers warm up (and heckle opposing relievers).

Better cell-phone and wireless Internet access.

Playground areas.
