Janet Marie Smith, Senior Vice President Planning and Development, LA Dodgers

Janet Marie Smith is an architect and urban planner who is supervising renovation of Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. She has worked for the Baltimore Orioles and the Atlanta Braves to oversee the design and construction of Camden Yards (1992) and Turner Field (1997) and for the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers to direct the renovations of Fenway Park and Dodger Stadium. While she is best known in the baseball world for the ground breaking urbanity of Camden Yards, people in Red Sox Nation know her as one of the saviors of Fenway Park, the oldest park in Major League Baseball.
