So anyone happen to know the best baseball stadiums for tailgating? We’ve never really gotten into the baseball tailgating scene and unfortunately the only relevant news that I recall is that Dodger Stadium has a tailgating ban. Over the past few years the cops have arrested a bunch of people, cracked down on people drinking beers in the parking lot, and there aren’t many tailgate games being played out there in Chavez Ravine. Meanwhile down in Orange County they have embraced tailgating a little bit more… although there are some pretty strict rules that need to be followed. Here are the 2011 tailgating rules per the Los Angeles Angels website:
The following is prohibited in the Angel Stadium Parking Lot:
- Alcohol consumption in the parking lot is illegal. AMC 7.16.010.010;
