Not exactly, even if that might be the most striking feature of a stadium renovation rendering he released Friday. Hershiser, the pitching star for the Dodgers' last World Series championship team in 1988, said he hoped to use the drawing to share with prospective new owners a vision for the preservation and enhancement of Dodger Stadium. "People don't know how heartfelt I am about keeping Dodger Stadium," Hershiser said in an interview Friday.

Change is coming to Dodger Stadium, and sooner than most may have imagined. The Dodgers hired someone with vast experience in stadium renovation on Monday, and team president Stan Kasten said much of the initial work could be completed prior to the 2013 home opener. “We're on an aggressive timeline,” Kasten said. “We would like to do as much as we can by opening day next year. I suspect what we'll have in place is going to be more than a one-year program. It's going to take several years, probably, to do all the things we want.

Seen some unsettling sights in my time. Bar fights, car wrecks, about 20 minutes of "Larry Crowne," a movie so vaporously bad it could've been shot on cellophane. But nothing is quite as deeply disturbing as the look on a parent's face when a ballpark turns ugly. You can read the father's thoughts: "I paid 250 bucks to bring my kids to this? What's this, Cannibal Night? Hey kids, ever read 'Lord of the Flies'?" So here's today's question: If Dodger Stadium were a movie theater, what would you rate the experience?

Free shuttle service between Dodger Stadium and Union Station will resume this season. The city of Los Angeles offered free shuttles during the second half of the 2008 season, but the service was discontinued last season when the city said it could no longer afford the cost and the Dodgers declined to pick up the tab.

Police on foot, bikes and horses descended on Chavez Ravine on Thursday night as Dodgers fans got their first taste of the ballpark's new "zero-tolerance" crackdown on rowdy behavior, prompted by the beating of a San Francisco Giants fan on opening day. Many Dodger faithful said they were thankful for the beefed-up police presence, but disheartened it was necessary. After the assault that left paramedic Bryan Stow, 42, of Santa Cruz in a coma, team officials and the Los Angeles Police Department promised more uniformed officers.

Love Dodger Stadium? Think it only needs some minor modernizing, just some tender loving care? Want to give it a big hug before you go to bed every night? Or are you the kind of pragmatist who believes it's had one helluva run, but it's now time for Los Angeles to have a modern stadium. To join the current millennium. Time to bring out the wrecking ball. Want answers? You're not going to get them now, at least regarding the long term. Dodgers Chief Executive Stan Kasten is focused on what he calls an aggressive off-season plan to respond to 51-year-old ballpark's most pressing current needs.
