Los Angeles Dodgers 2019 Opening Day NR19066cr

Los Angeles:  On Thursday, March 28, 2019, the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team will play their first home game of the season.  In an effort to assist the public in avoiding possible traffic congestion and parking delays, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is informing the public of the temporary “Tow-Away, No Parking” parking restriction near Dodger Stadium.  Please make sure that you observe all parking signage as the following locations will be strictly enforced between the hours of 5:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.;  

* Avenue of the Palms (Stadium Way) between Scott Road and Academy Road

* Academy Road between Morton Avenue and Stadium Way

* Scott Avenue between Boylston Street and Elysian Park Drive

In addition to parking enforcement, LAPD officers will be patrolling the area to enforce the no tolerance policy for drinking in public or in the parks.  Dodger fans are also reminded that there is no tailgating in the parking lots of Dodger Stadium.    

If you plan on attending the game and buying tickets near the stadium, be aware of ticket scalpers who may sell you fraudulent tickets.  There is often little recourse once you arrive and attempt to gain access to the game.  There will be undercover officers in the area enforcing illegal ticket scalping in the hours leading up to the game.   

Everyone in attendance on opening day deserves a safe and fun-filled day of baseball, so please respect the neighborhood and stay safe.  Let’s Play Ball!  

If anyone has any questions, please contact Media Relations Division at 213-486-5910.
