One of baseball’s grandest cathedrals might be getting a significant change.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly looking to sell the naming rights to Dodger Stadium’s field for $12-million per year, according to Terry Lefton of SportsBusinessDaily.com.

It’s only the field itself that the team is attempting to sell, reports Lefton. Thus, if a sale were to come to fruition, the venerable park would be referred to as “(Naming-rights holder) Field at Dodger Stadium.”

The Dodgers reportedly opened bidding for the naming rights in the spring, per Lefton, though it’s unclear if there have been any bids at this point.

Dodger Stadium is the third-oldest active ballpark in the majors and opened in 1962, four years after the Dodgers franchise moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles. Although the Angels referred to it as “Chavez Ravine” while playing home games there from 1962 to 1965, the stadium’s name has never been officially changed by the Dodgers in its 55-year history.
