24 May Q&A: How can I find out about somehow getting tickets for people with medical issues like hers?
Your site doesn’t have a specific area to find out about tickets for disabled spectators, my sister is a die-hard Dodger fan her fav player is “Clayton Kershaw”. I purchased tickets for the game on the 22nd of June. However, disabled seating doesn’t cover people who cannot see well. My sister has down syndrome and I’m afraid that with her being so small and turning 53 she will just be occupying a seat. How can I find out about somehow getting tickets for people with medical issues like hers? Please advise.
Disabled Spectator’s Response
Thank you for reaching out to Disabled Spectator regarding accessible seats.
From our experience, exchanging seat tickets is a simple process. On the day of the game, the Dodger Box Office will exchange your tickets for seats that meet your sister’s needs. However, to confirm this support, recommend that you call the Dodger Hotline (323.224-2611) before June 22nd and speak with a Fan Services representative.
Other information that might be helpful for you and your sister to enjoy the Dodger game on June 22nd can be found at the below link about Dodger Stadium.
Helpful key sections follow.
- Dodger Stadium Parking
There are 16,000 parking spaces in the official lots surrounding Dodger Stadium. The parking spaces are divided between 30 separate parking lots, the inner circle of which is considered “preferred parking”, and the outer circle that makes up general parking lots. Preferred parking is more expensive, offered first to season ticket holders, and obviously more convenient. General parking is extremely affordable and can purchased for as low as $5 at drive-up, though closer general parking can be bought for $10. Visit the Dodgers website to purchase parking in advance and save money. View the map for better insight into Dodgers parking.
- Disabled Parking Spaces Are Located in Parking Lots B, D, G, L, N, & P.
Parking cashiers and attendants will direct those with a valid state-issued disabled parking permit and/or license plate to these areas.
- ADA Shuttle
The Los Angeles Dodgers offer a courtesy ADA shuttle that is reserved for guests with disabilities. This ADA shuttle operates from the various parking lots to the areas near the entry gates. In order to arrange for this service, once you have parked, call the Dodger Hotline at (323) 224-2611 to have the shuttle dispatched to your location.
n.b. I am a mobility impaired disabled fan and normally use a walker. I have attended several games at Dodger Stadium and on each occasion found the surrounding hills to be a challenge.
Again, on any home game day before June 22nd, I highly recommend that you call the Dodgers Hotline (323) 224-2611 to confirm the services that will be available to you.
Best wishes and enjoy the game.
