Rivals Condemn Beating of San Francisco Giants Fan

The San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers may be long time rivals on the ball field, but officials from the opposing baseball teams joined forces over the weekend to condemn a brutal beating that left a Bay Area fan in critical condition.

I really hope they catch these guys soon. It’s bad for baseball, bad for the teams involved and most of all, gives us true baseball fans a black eye. No one deserves to be attacked for supporting their favorite team! No one!

From CNN:

Bryan Stow, 41, has been fighting for his life since two men wearing Dodgers clothing assaulted him after last week’s season opener in Los Angeles, police said. The avid Giants fan was attacked after the game, which the Dodgers won 2-1.

“This attack is unconscionable behavior that will not be tolerated in either of our ballparks or in either of our cities,” the team officials said in a Sunday statement, which was also signed by the mayors and police chiefs of San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Police were still searching for the suspects, who they said were between the ages of 18 and 25.

“Obviously they were young, foolish and cowardly. And there’s no room for that type of activity in the city of Los Angeles or anywhere in the world,” Los Angeles Police Detective P.J. Morris told reporters Friday.

    Poor guy. This is outrageous, and not the first time we’ve heard of this sort of thing happening at a Game. Makes you leary about even wearing your Team’s Shirt, as, like the saying goes, it seems “there’s always one in the Crowd” anymore. A real Shame. I hope this man recovers well and soon, and that somebody, or some people, who may have witnessed the Beating, can help Police find these disgusting jerks.
