07:28 AM ET 01.31 | Technology has taken another bite out of nostalgia, this time in Los Angeles. If you watch Clayton Kershaw pitch a no-hitter at Dodger Stadium this year, you can pretty much forget about saving your game ticket. The Dodgers are just about doing away with paper tickets this season. No longer will season-seat holders get a shipment of tickets. Instead, those fans will display bar codes to enter Dodger Stadium, either by printing them at home or scanning them directly from a smartphone. "This is a real fan enhancement," said Lon Rosen, the Dodgers' executive vice president and chief marketing officer. By replacing paper tickets with bar codes, he said, fans can print them at their convenience, transfer them at no charge to friends, clients or StubHub, and gain expedited entry to the ballpark at automated turnstiles.

I've been waiting for that for a long time. There seems to be zero traction for it.

technology will erase every fun and good memory from the real game,tickets download from the web could backfire the dodgers business as a organization though!!

It's a sign of the times. That which was once collectible becomes virtual.

a lot easier to keep up with for sure. but there's a lot of great memories in those ticket stubs i have...just feels like you have your very own piece of the game, concert, etc.
