Dodger Stadium at 100?

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

The next iteration of Dodger Stadium will be previewed at a press conference Thursday, and Bill Shakin previews the preview at the Times:

The Dodgers plan to unveil their most extensive stadium renovation yet Thursday, a project that would transform the area behind the outfield into an entrance promenade featuring restaurants, shops and a Dodgers museum.

In a letter sent today to season-ticket holders, owner Frank McCourt and President Jamie McCourt said the improvements would "give the stadium a chance to remain viable and perhaps see its 100th birthday."

The letter did not detail the renovations, but the plan would enact a vision Frank McCourt made when he bought the team in 2004 -- to transform at least part of the Dodger Stadium parking lot into an area offering dining and shopping for fans who arrive early and stay late, avoiding pregame and postgame traffic.

Dodger Stadium could reach 100 and surprisingly quite a few of us would still be around to see it.

I doubt I would be one of them. I would have to make it to 96.

I predict the army of lobbyists representing Universal City will seek to tie this idea up in procedural knots.
