Dodgers owner Dolores Huerta says Dodger team will be ready to go if necessary
Los Angeles Dodgers owner and former MLB commissioner Dolores Hoerta said Thursday the team is ready to move to Los Angeles if needed to protect its interests.
Hoertas comments come as her team prepares to host a series of games against the Philadelphia Phillies.
She also said Dodgers fans deserve to know how they are treated when they come to Dodger Stadium.
The Dodger franchise will play games in Los Angeles at Dodger Park from July 15 to July 18.
The first game is scheduled for Friday at 5 p.m. and the second game is set for Saturday at 8 p.d.
Hoerna said the Dodger fans deserve an explanation.
She said she is not aware of any negative impact that Dodger games have on Dodger baseball operations.
Hoetas comments came after the team has faced criticism over its handling of the aftermath of the April 19, 2020, earthquake in Nepal.
The team has played five home games in the past two weeks.
Hoedas statement was not an indication that the team was preparing to play in Los Angelas, which is home to Los Gatos International Airport.
She did say the team would be ready for whatever happens, but said that the club would continue to cooperate with the authorities in Nepal to help resolve the crisis.
Hoeches statement came after a team meeting Thursday.
The Dodgers will host the Philadelphia Athletics at Dodgy Stadium from July 17 to Aug. 8.
The next home game is Aug. 17 at Dodgiest Stadium.
Hoents statement also comes a day after the city of Los Angeles and the county of Santa Barbara announced they would not issue permits for a proposed stadium project in Los Feliz.
The county is seeking to build a $1.5 billion stadium that would include an outdoor court and an enclosed parking garage.
The city is hoping to build an $8 billion stadium on the site of a former Navy base that was once home to a golf course.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the county is also planning to issue permits to build stadiums in other cities.
The project is being spearheaded by developer Chris Hansen.
The Santa Barbara County Stadium Authority is seeking an $800 million loan guarantee from the state of California.
Hansen said in a statement that his company is committed to the development of a viable stadium project, and he would not comment further.
The stadium plan has been in the works for more than a year.
