When I was young, I loved DS, but now after seeing what other teams have for stadiums, DS is sure lacking. Starting with being on their own private little hill - they have no connection with the city at all. There's absolutely no reason to be there if you're not at a ball game.

I don't know what the answer is, and not sure if it's a real problem, but it's not as an enjoyable place as it was when I was younger. Just getting to/from the stadium is a chore. Other (most?) teams have light rail / subway to their stadium - that will likely never happen at Dodger Stadium.

"The Next 50" plan showed a lot of promises. Too bad, Frank showed his true colors and that plan was abandoned. Hopefully the new owner will revive that plan.

You're right about a light rail to the stadium. But this is LA. Public transportation has always sucked no matter where.
