Extra "S" Perturbs Name-checker

From an otherwise well-written piece by Wright Thompson on Mark McGwire's current whereabouts:
The last time they were together was at Dodgers Stadium in 2001, the year McGwire retired. They talked for about 15 minutes, just catching up, and Robertson had no idea that it would be the last time he would see his old college roommate.

"Dodgers Stadium"? Where we wear Dodgers Blue and eat Dodgers Dogs? Put it this way: I'll bet ESPN has never referred to "Yankees Stadium."
