WEST COAST BASEBALL

THE GIANTS' SEALS STADIUM

This is an article from the March 24, 1958 issue Original Layout

Seals Stadium (capacity 23,741), one of the largest minor league parks, is much the smallest in the majors. Most seats, however, are choice (5,870 boxes, 12,771 reserved), and the field itself is a gem. Parking is poor. Small lot just beyond left field fence will be reserved for players, officials, press, etc. Nearest off-street area of any size is three blocks away, under freeway ramps. Public transit isn't bad, with plenty of extra buses slated for big-game days. Taxis take only 15 minutes from downtown, with fares reasonable.

BOX SEATS: $3.50
RESERVED SEATS (R): $2.50
PAVILION: $1.50
BLEACHERS: 90¢

THE DODGERS' COLISEUM

The Coliseum is the largest stadium ever used for major league baseball. Thus, a solid 1958 bet is that the Dodgers will break every big league attendance record in the books. Permanent capacity is about 105,000, but top baseball attendance will probably remain below 100,000 since spread-out seating cuts some 7,000 off the maximum. There will be about 35,000 box and reserved seats in this post-free arena. Plenty of parking (13,000 cars) in vicinity, which is fortunate, since public transportation is on the weak side.

BOX SEATS (B): $3.50
RESERVED SEATS (R): $2.50
GENERAL ADMISSION (GRAY): $1.50
BLEACHERS: 90¢
