Baseball field at the LA Memorial Coliseum

On March 29, 2008, the Los Angeles Dodgers hosted the Boston Red Sox in an exhibition game at the LA Coliseum. The field had unusual dimensions, with left field a mere 201 feet from home plate. A 60 feet tall screen was placed above the left field wall to make up for the short distance. The Red Sox won 7-4.

The sellout crowd of 115,300 set a world record for a baseball game. Proceeds from the game went to the ThinkCure cancer research charity.
