Dodgers Historian to Speak on Stadium Past
Join Los Angeles Dodgers historian Mark Langill for a presentation on Thursday, Aug. 4, as he explores the history of Dodger Stadium and learn how it became home to the ballclub.
Since 1962, the stadium has become an iconic Los Angeles fixture set in the heart of the city in Chavez Ravine. The 56,000-seat venue has not only hosted Dodgers’ home games but countless events over its 60 years.
Langill has been a member of the Dodgers front office since 1994. Previously, he covered the ballclub for five seasons as a beat reporter for the Pasadena Star-News.
The California State University, Northridge, graduate has written six books about the ballclub, including “Dodger Stadium,” “The Dodgers: From Coast to Coast,” “Game of My Life: Dodgers” and “All For One,” the official commemorative book about the 2020 championship season. His television appearances include ESPN’s 30-for-30 documentary, “Fernando Nation,” The History Channel’s “American Restoration” and various programming on the team’s Spectrum SportsNet LA network.
Tickets for the 7 p.m. University Club of Pasadena event, located at 175 N. Oakland Ave., are available online at Eventbrite. Prices are $20 for general admission and $15 for PMH and University Club Members.
The University Club’s dinner service will be available to all program attendees before the start of the presentation. Dinner service hours are 4:30 to 7 p.m. Dinner is not included in the ticket price. For the dinner menu and reservations, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
