There’s a big change coming in 2016 for the Dodgers’ official magazine.
Starting in April, Dodger Insider magazine will be distributed for free at the autogates at every Dodger Stadium regular-season game.
Previously, Dodger Insider magazine cost $5 per issue, while the Dodger Playbill received free autogate distribution (one per vehicle). We are merging the two publications into one great magazine for everyone.
Each issue of the new Dodger Insider magazine will be at least 80 pages, plus a scorecard, with the news, features, photos and games you have grown accustomed to seeing in the program over past years.
There will be a new issue for every homestand, meaning that there will be at least 160 pages of free content each month during the season, plus a 13th issue at the start of October. All free.
Fans who arrive via alternative transportation will be able to pick up a copy of the new magazine at Fan Services booths in Dodger Stadium.
The bonus for this blog is that, unlike past years when we had to limit what we could share online from the magazine, that wall comes down this year. So everyone online will have access to the best pieces from the magazine.
If you still want to subscribe to the magazine — we do have our out-of-town fans, for example — don’t worry. Subscriptions are available at dodgers.com/magazine, for an annual cost of $39.95. Each issue will be polybagged to protect it during shipping.
Special offer: The 2016 Yearbook ($15 value) is free with a new year’s subscription to Dodger Insider magazine.
Note: Current Dodger Insider magazine subscriptions will be honored, with one issue of the previous monthly magazine counting as two issues of the new twice-a-month magazine. For any questions or concerns about current print subscriptions, email email@example.com or call (877) 258-3062.
