With Aaron Judge again putting his spectacular season full of home runs (19) on hiatus, The Los Angeles Dodgers are trying to improve the conditions of their stadium after the New York Yankees outfielder suffered an injury last weekend that will keep him out for at least 10 days.

During Saturday’s game, reigning American League MVP, Aaron Judge homered and also tore up a chunk of right field with a play-of-the-week-nominated catch.

In a confrontation between two heavyweights of Major League Baseball, Judge caused a large number of fans, including Spike Lee, to rise from their seats to applaud him for his remarkable action that brought to mind multiple scenes from the Superman movies.. However, the performance of El Juez had a double price to pay.

The Yankees will be without their star player in key series (Red Sox and Mets) when they find themselves fighting in the closest division in the entire big tent. Judge injured his big toe crashing into a concrete pad.

Despite having played just 49 games so far this year, he leads the American League with 19 home runs.. is batting .291/.404/.674 (193 OPS+) on the follow-up to his 62-homer, 131-RBI 2022 season

“He didn’t go through the gate, which is what I thought when I was watching the game,” Kasten said. “Then I went outside and realized that the door does not open in that direction.

“In fact, it broke where some of the panels met, the barrier between the two connecting panels. Which is awesome. But we’re going to strengthen that and add a strip of padding at the bottom as well.”

Dodger Stadium was the site of last year’s All-Star Game and received heavy investment to host the midseason classic. Home of the Dodgers, it is the third oldest stadium in Major League Baseball behind Wrigley Field (Cubs) and Fenway Park (Red Sox). It debuted as the home of the Dodgers in 1962.
