We’ve kept a keen eye on the progress of the renovations going on at Dodger Stadium this off-season. Simple looks go a long way in painting the picture of where the stadium is at in that moment, and the challenges of such an overwhelming undertaking.
Now, thanks to Spectrum SportsNet LA and anchor Alanna Rizzo, we have a comprehensive update from the woman behind the vision. Dodgers Senior Vice President of Planning and Development Janet Marie Smith spent time with Rizzo today at Dodger Stadium to give us this.

The massive project is underway thanks in part to the 2020 All-Star game being hosted in Los Angeles for the first time in 40 years. And with that comes more pressure to get the task done well before opening day.
Its a huge amount of work to do in a single offseason but Stan Kasten has been vigilant about pressing us about doing it all at once — it doesn’t dribble in.
