The Dodger Stadium is situated in Downtown Los Angeles and has been the home of Major League Baseball team the LA Dodgers since 1962.

It is famed for its loyal fans and the atmosphere means the stadium is well worth a visit for anyone staying in Los Angeles hotels.

The 56,000-seat capacity makes the Dodger Stadium the largest ballpark in the world and it is also the third oldest, behind only Boston's Fenway Park and Chicago's Wrigley Field.

Superstar players such as Sandy Koufax and Orel Hershisher made their name after arriving in LA and Dodgers fans still talk about their 1963 World Series win over the New York Yankees - their only home victory in the tournament.

A tour of the stadium is offered to show visitors behind the scenes, with highlights including trips to the dugouts and trophy cabinets. It should also be possible to get hold of tickets from the box office to enjoy a live game during the baseball season.
