  • A state-of-the-art Wi-Fi network and cellular antenna system to support cell-phone and internet connectivity from mobile devices (not ready until June, the team says)
  • Wider concourses and additional locations for wheelchair-bound fans and their companions on all levels, as well as “drink rails” for fans who may wish to leave their seats during the game to explore the stadium
  • Expanded and renovated restrooms with substantially more fixtures
  • Food service enhancements to Loge, Reserve and Top Deck levels, including new concession stands, cooking facilities and menus
  • New entry plazas on the Reserve and Top Deck levels featuring life-size bobbleheads and 5-foot replicas of Dodger Cy Young Award winners, autographed baseballs and Hall of Fame retired numbers
  • Kids play areas have been created on the Reserve level
  • A new home team clubhouse, expanded and enhanced training/conditioning areas, and new indoor batting cages for both teams
