July 28th, 2020

LOS ANGELES – Fans can now get a taste of the ballpark experience delivered on-demand by ordering from Home Plates, which will bring Dodger Dogs and stadium favorites directly to Los Angeles-area fans’ doorsteps launching exclusively on Postmates.

Home Plates will serve Dodger Stadium fan-favorites like Dodger Dogs, micheladas and garlic fries to go along with snacks, salads, bar and dessert options. In addition to premium Dodger Dogs, items specially produced by Home Plates include individual thin-crust Brooklyn-style pizza, carne asada helmet nachos and Dodger Blue Gelato. The full menu, with family party pack and catering options, can be found at Dodgers.com/HomePlates.

Home Plates will initially launch in Los Angeles’ Hollywood and West Hollywood neighborhoods with plans to expand to additional neighborhoods throughout LA. Dodgers dishes created and packaged by Home Team Kitchens’ restaurants will be delivered with Postmates within the delivery radius for each restaurant.

"In launching Home Plates, we’re bringing the unforgettable Dodger Stadium experience home to Angelenos. Los Angeles sports fans will now have year-round access to their favorite stadium flavors, whether it’s for a gourmet gameday, celebration or just to satisfy an everyday craving,” said Tucker Kain, President, Business Enterprise. “Home Plates will bring together the best in the business as we build on our groundbreaking partnership with Postmates and enlist the culinary expertise of Home Team Kitchens to serve our fans a taste of a Dodger Stadium.”

“Following the launch of Postmates Live with the Dodgers last season, we are thrilled to be able to extend the stadium experience to fans at home,” said Eric Edge, SVP of Marketing and Communications at Postmates. “In partnership with the Dodgers and Home Team Kitchens, we will bring a unique experience to our customers’ doorsteps through this delivery-first concept when LA baseball fans need it most.”

“We’re thrilled to bring our delivery-first restaurant home to Dodgers’ fans. And it’s fitting to do this with Postmates given their connection to L.A. and special relationship with the Dodgers, ” said Home Team Kitchens CEO Michael Jacobs. “We’ve re-imagined ‘dine-in’ as a ‘dine-out’ experience, bringing the same quality and creativity to design, preparation and packaging for our in-home meals that fans expect from a stellar night out at the stadium. It’s a pleasure collaborating with the Dodgers and Postmates to extend the in-stadium experience by creating memorable and delightful in-home dining worthy of loyal Dodgers fans.”  

In keeping with the Dodgers’ standards, Home Team Kitchens employs technical innovations like healthier air frying rather than oil, and uses moisture reducing packaging technology to ensure freshness.
