New Dodgertown gets own zip code
LOS ANGELES -- The United States Postal Service will designate Dodger Stadium and the associated property with its own zip code -- 90090 -- beginning June 6.
The unveiling will take place before the Dodgers play the Philadelphia Phillies in a nationally televised matinee on The Fox Network -- the birthplace of "Beverly Hills 90210."
The current Los Angeles zip code for addressing mail to Dodger Stadium is 90012.
The L.A. City Council designated the property as "Dodgertown" in October 2008. Dodgertown was the team's longtime spring training facility in Vero Beach, Fla., before owner Frank McCourt moved the operations to Glendale, Ariz.
