LOS ANGELES – At the outset of the 2024 season, the Dodgers have launched a number of new offerings and improvements at Dodger Stadium for fans to enjoy at this historic and diverse destination.

On March 26, the Dodgers unveiled their Japanese stone lantern from 1965 at a more prominent location on Top Deck. The lantern was presented to the Dodgers organization by Japanese sports columnist Sotaro Suzuki, who is also a member of the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame. The eight-foot, 3,921-pound Kasuga-style stone lantern was gifted to the organization and team president Walter O’Malley by Suzuki as a thank you for inviting him and his wife, Toku, as guests to Dodger Stadium’s grand opening on April 9, 1962. Fans can now see and photograph the lantern.

To acknowledge fans who have traveled from overseas to see newly acquired Dodgers Shohei Ohtani and Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Fan Services stations throughout the stadium all feature a translator device to better communicate with fans. There is also an increased amount of multi-lingual signage posted in all fan-facing areas.

The Dodgers formally launched Dodgers 365 last July, a department focused on non-baseball event initiatives and new opportunities for people to engage with Dodger Stadium. While the stadium has hosted concerts and other events in the past, Dodgers 365 has centralized its efforts in 2024 by combining tours, stadium rentals and other ticketed event experiences to program the stadium year-round.

Specifically, Dodger Stadium Tours continue to expand their offerings with more gameday tour options – both pregame tours and VIP tours. This includes the addition of tours in Japanese, which run four days per week with two different time slots. For more information, visit

Last year, the Dodgers introduced their new drone shows with smashing success. This season, fans have 10 opportunities to witness the drones shows, which take place after the games and are all produced with specialty themes and unique music. The number of drones has also increased, with the minimum number of drones expanding from 400 to 500, and four of the 10 shows will feature 1,000 drones.

Over the off-season, the benches of the pavilion seats were refreshed to better serve fans.

UberEats is now making it easier and less time-consuming for fans to purchase concessions. Fans can place their orders through the app and pick up their food from express pick-up lanes at select stands.

In an effort to reduce paper usage, QR codes are available in premium seating areas. Fans can scan the QR code using their smart phones to easily access the day’s menu.
