What I really wanted to hear, of course, was what the Dodgers thought about folks just walking into their house and hanging out in the middle of the day, so I phoned club spokesman Josh Rawitch with the news.
“I want to tell you about my favorite place to have lunch,” I said.
“Top of the park at Dodger Stadium, right?” he said.
“How did you know?” I said.
“You’re not the only one,” he said.
It turns out, other folks are aware of this place, and the Dodgers tolerate it for the good of the town.
“There are a lot of fans who refer to the top of the park as the best-kept secret lunch spot in Los Angeles, and it’s hard to argue with them,” Rawitch said. “While we don’t openly encourage it, the fact that it has become known this way is a reminder of just how special Dodger Stadium is to our fans, even when it’s empty.”
