L.A. Times: ‘Dodgertown’ designation sought for area around stadium (RR)

With the Dodgers in the running for the World Series, the Los Angeles City Council today unanimously approved a resolution calling for federal legislation to rename the area around Dodger Stadium “Dodgertown.”

The resolution calls for the postmaster general to redraw a ZIP Code boundary encompassing 276 acres of Dodgers property between Academy Road to the north, Lookout Drive to the south, Stadium Way to the west and skirting the parking lot to Academy Road to the east.

“It will provide us with a different way of celebrating a major institution that does so much for the community,” said City Councilman Ed Reyes, who represents the area. “We’re in the running to represent the National Division and, keep your fingers crossed, we could be in” the World Series.

The National Division?

Once complete, Reyes said Dodgertown would indeed look like "a little town," with a promenade, restaurants, shopping and a museum.

To replace the parking lot or the police academy?

If there's a CD store, will it sell copies of Ry Cooder's Chávez Ravine?

I pimp that song every chance I get, vortex, mostly because it strikes me as more beautiful and sad than angry. Ry Cooder makes music, and I don't say that often.

The plan the McCourt unveiled earlier this year had the shopping and restaurants behind the current outfield pavilions. The promenade would encircle the entire stadium and would increase the stadium footprint. The plan would not affect many of the current parking spaces.

This might be the whitest thing I've ever seen somebody say. Well done.

If everything goes well, the Dodgers will be in the World Division.

I wonder if Frank MCCourt can do multiplication or division.

Dude. Please. It's not like I said it about Dave Matthews.
