Blue Heaven on Earth, Chavez Ravine, The Ravine…These are all nicknames that Dodger Stadium have that still stands to this day. Dodger Stadium has been the name for the Stadium of your LA Dodgers since 1962. Yesterday a report came out that one of the Bidders asked about the naming rights to Dodger stadium and those who saw it including me were upset that someone even mentioned it. Why would a bidder want to change the name just for a Sponsor? It’s not right.
Bidders to become Dodgers owner. From the Los Angeles Dodgers fan base DO NOT TOUCH THE STADIUM NAME!!
Some maybe wondering why am I tripping over the name change. Well Every Baseball fan knows about Dodger Stadium and it’s history. When you go to Dodger games you saw signs pointing towards Dodger Stadium or saying Welcome to Dodger Stadium and I feel such a change to it just join the marketing hype will make things feel very different. I mean just imagine a Dodger game and as you travel you see “Welcome to Capital One Field” Or when you’re on a tour and you hear it under a different name. It’ll make it feel different. The Stadium will be there but the name will be different and That will make me and other Dodger fans very unhappy.
Dodger Stadium has been the idenity of the Stadium for 50 years and Shouldn’t be touched now or ever. Just no. Do I believe the name will be changed? No I don’t see it happening now or anythime soon but the mention of it is something that shouldn’t even happen in my opinion. Why change something just for the sake of sponsors and money? To me and many others Dodger Stadium shouldn’t be touched at all.
Who ever the new owner: You can make imoprovements to the Stadium and Parking lots but we ask you Don’t change the Uniforms, Don’t change the Name of the Team, Don’t Move the Stadium or the team and DON’T CHANGE THE STADIUM NAME!!
