Dodgertown is more than just a nickname for Dodger Stadium and its environs -- it's now a neighborhood officially recognized by the U.S. Postal Service.
The Postal Service has announced that the stadium has been given its own zip code -- 90090 -- and will be allowed the name "Dodgertown, CA." Unveiling takes place Saturday, June 6, when the Dodgers play the Philadelphia Phillies.
Check out this cheezy quote from the postal service:
“Not only do more than three million citizens call Dodger Stadium their summer home each year but fans from all over the world send cards and letters to the Dodgers organization and their favorite players,” said Gregory G. Graves, the Postal Service’s district manager for Los Angeles.
“ZIP Codes are as important to the Postal Service as a smooth, accurate delivery is for a pitcher in baseball,” said Graves. “The use of 90090 will assure fans of all ages that their mail will be delivered quickly and efficiently.”
