Dodger Stadium, privately built by Walter O’Malley, opened in Los Angeles on April 10, 1962. It was immediately known for its beauty, family-friendly atmosphere, affordable tickets, colors, parking, cleanliness, unparalleled sightlines and protected environment. O’Malley was involved in every detail of the planning and maintenance of Dodger Stadium, an L.A. icon.
