Dodgers in race to finish stadium work by Friday

Dodger Stadium hosts its first exhibition game on Friday night against the Angels. Then on Monday the season starts with a day game against the Giants. The $100 million-plus renovation, enlarging bathrooms and concessions and adding wi-fi plus a lot more, isn't quite done. On "Marketplace," Kai Ryssdal takes an audio tour with project manager Janet Marie Smith, the Dodgers' senior vice president of planning and development. She jokes that with game time on Friday at 7:05 p.m., the extra five minutes might come in handy.

Listen to the story below. There are a few photos at the Marketplace website.
