Shooting at Dodger Stadium

| 6 Comments

Robert Garcia Tagorda, who was at the game, reacts at Priorities and Frivolities to last night's murder in the Dodger Stadium parking lot, apparently a Giants fan shooting a Dodgers fan [maybe not--see below]. He calls it "a dark moment in the rivalry, the game, the sports world..."

I fear that this incident will drive away some fans, or at least make them think twice about attending. I also fear that, in their attempt to secure the premises, the Dodgers might impose too many additional restrictions, making the game experience less enjoyable. Hopefully, they strike a good balance in addressing this issue...

One thing's for sure: the next Dodger owner will need to address not just gaping holes in the offense, but also the overall fan experience.

Here's the AP story.

Update Sunday:The victim's family tells the L.A. Times he was a Giants fan. Not that it really matters.
