Dodgers outfielder Trace Thompson is grateful to be back in LA

Dodger Stadium has the architectural distinction of being the only major league stadium carved into the side of a canyon, and the only major league stadium where players enter from above the nosebleed seats.

Trace Thompson always believed he could go back there, but never knew for sure. He parks in the player’s parking lot, enters his 8th floor above his home plate, and goes down the stairs. He strolls into the stands with the best views in baseball below him. Then he pauses. Sometimes he prays. Sometimes he just breathes. It’s an emotional way to start your day.
