Default Giant fan beaten in Dodger Stadium parking lot on opening day

I just wanted to say that as a Dodger fan that attends a few games a year, I am sick to my stomach after hearing and reading about this story the last few days. It seems to be getting a lot of national media attention now and thats a good thing. Maybe it will force Dodger owner Frank McCourt to take a serious look at his security procedures at the stadium so this type of thing is less likely to happen again. My thoughts go out to his friends and family and I hope that the scum bags that did this get caught.

I am also a Dodger fan (and so is my wife) and we have been to many Dodger games without any incidents- but this is uncalled for and pathetic. Hopefully the victim is OK, and hopefully it doesn't happen again. I did not see the story on this, do you have a link? If not I will search around for it.

I would assume that the people who did this were probably intoxicated and fell into that stupid "group mentality" thing.....one person starts it and the rest follow along.........pretty sad.

Here's a link to an article from the L.A. Times from Wednesday.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/dodg...re-swells.html

There are some more articles on the L.A Times website. Just click on their sports page and there is a whole daily section on the Dodgers.

Thanks for the link on that- I did see it on the news earlier tonight. Very sad.
Wish him the best and hope he pulls through.

Sincerely, Clayton

As a longtime resident of both Northern and Southern California, I have always enjoyed the intense rivalry that exists between the Dodgers and the Giants. With that being said, I believe this tragic incident has little to do with the rivalry and a lot to do with with the fact that California has become a very violent place. Sadly, I think about leaving the state every day ...

the cheap-ass carpet-bagging mccourts need to go. my love for the dodgers is only matched by my hatred for the mccourts. what a curse for this once proud franchise.

I also agree with you on this Chris- I thought moving out of California would get me away from that too, but I'm starting to think it's becoming like that in most larger metropolitan areas on the west coast. Las Vegas has a lot of the same crap going on as California did (does).

Hi Johnny-

Tried to post another link, but it says the page moved. Anyhow- Giants fan was walking to his car after the game, and two guys started insulting him talking trash and then they ended up attacking him. He is in critical condition with a fractured skull and will probably have brain damage.

You can just search Yahoo or Google and type in Giants fan and it pulls up multiple articles. So far they (police, Dodgers, talk radio host, victims employer, etc.) are offering a $150,000.00 reward to catch the scum who did this.

Clayton
