Temperatures are expected to reach into the low 80s today but the playing field at Dodger Stadium is being covered in a sheet of ice as the ballpark prepares to host an outdoor hockey match on Saturday between the L.A. Kings and the Anaheim Ducks. The time-lapse video above shows the construction of the hockey rink. Yahoo Sports notes that Boston’s Fenway Park also hosts an outdoor hockey match but there are some differences:
Again, the most notable comparison would be Fenway Park, since they took a single Winter Classic in 2010 and expanded it into a week long Frozen Fenway event. Los Angeles is attempting to do something similar, but instead of a monster sled ramp in the outfield, Dodger Stadium features a beach volleyball court and a roller hockey rink.
