The Los Angeles Dodgers are charging a big chunk of money to watch them play the Atlanta Braves. Enjoy that parking lot!

With the juggernaut-esque Dodgers on the verge of taking the next step in a potential dramatic World Series run, fans in Los Angeles are understandably itchy about their inability to support their team in person.

Tickets are available for the NLCS in Arlington for some reason (best of luck with all that!), but is there a solution for the city’s more normal denizens who have no interest in hopping on a plane to Texas right about now?

Well, now there is!

If you’ve got $75 per car (er…), then get yourself to the Dodger Stadium parking lot to watch Mookie Betts, Cody Bellinger and the boys take on the Atlanta Braves! On a 60-foot screen! Vin Scully demands it.

Dodgers fans have gone through a ton of heartache over the past few years attempting to watch the team’s games like every other fan base in MLB can. At long last, the team’s regional sports network is finally available on DirecTV, just in time for watching from afar to become the only option.

But this begs the question: For $75, what type of amenities is the team bringing to the table? 60-foot screens sound wonderful, but what’s the speaker system going to be like? We still doing micheladas and nacho helmets, or not? I need specifics here!

Cheering with your fellow Dodgers fans isn’t quite the same when you can’t reach out and touch your fellow Dodgers fans, after all.

If this cost isn’t prohibitive for you, it might be worth it just to get a taste of the parking lot and stadium we generally call home.

Bringing home a ring and ending the drought this year would feel bizarre, but heck, we’re not going to turn it down. Kudos to the Dodgers for attempting to install a sense of normalcy, but this price point is going to make the decision difficult.
