MLB Facilities Report


By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek

March 29, 2013

While MLB players were off this winter, teams had the opportunity to renovate their stadium without distraction. The highest-profile renovation belonged to the Los Angeles Dodgers, whose deep-pocketed ownership group spent $100 million to modernize Dodger Stadium. Among the new amenities are new HD video boards, a new clubhouse, and better cell phone reception and WiFi service. Also renovating their stadium was the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds gave Great American Ballpark a $2 million touch-up in an effort to boost luxury suite renewals and prepare the stadium for the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. The Reds also added a 90-seat, outfield bar as part of their new multiyear sponsorship deal with Budweiser.

Meanwhile, the Cubs want to renovate the 99-year-old Wrigley Field, but have run into issues with the stadium’s historic landmark status. Chicago suburb Rosemont has offered the Cubs a 25-acre parcel of land to build a new ballpark, but the family will continue focusing on Wrigley.
