Dodgers Come to Town, Giants to Increase Security
|Leave the rivalry on the field|
Officer Albie Esparza told media outlets that police will have a "very visible increased presence" inside and outside AT&T Park, just in case there is any retaliation after Dodgers fans beat Giants fan Bryan Stow two weeks ago. The Giants say the security force will be 30 to 40 percent higher than what you typically see at a game.
"Anyone who is causing any problems will be dealt with immediately in
order to prevent any further escalation," Esparza was quoted as saying in the Examiner.
Both teams and cities have pulled together a $100,000 reward to help catch the men responsible for attacking Stow, who was beaten as he walked to his car.
Today's game is the first between the Giants and the Dodgers since the incident.
