I love a game at Dodger Stadium. When I first moved here, I didn't understand the love for the place the locals had. To me it was just another stadium from the era of big impersonal stadiums. This wasn't some historical ballpark or anything like a Comiskey or a Fenway. Over time I came to learn that a stadium built in '62 WAS historic for Los Angeles, as well as develop an affinity for the little unique things that give Dodger Stadium its character and flavor. This is one of em - these crazy topiary trees in the parking lot. I searched for some history on them, but couldn't find any. I can only guess they've been that way since the '60s, since they feel so much from that Dr Seuss/Disneyland era.
