Will any Giants fan step foot at Dodger Stadium for tomorrow night's game? After what happened to Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was savagely beaten outside Dodger Stadium, it would seem inconceivable.
But you never know with those hardcore fans, which is why the Dodgers plan to add serious security measures for tomorrow and Thursday's games -- just in case. The specifics haven't been revealed other than more cops will be on the stadium grounds, patrolling concourses and parking lots -- which is where Stow was beaten into a coma after the opener game on March 31 by two men wearing Dodgers attire.
It will be the first time the Giants have returned to Los Angeles since the tragic beating.
NBC reports that LAPD's former chief, Bill Bratton, was hired as the Dodgers security consultant after Stow was beaten outside the stadium. The Dodgers will speak at a press conference this afternoon with the LAPD to provide more information.
Stow, who has been in a coma since he was beaten, was transferred to San Francisco
General Hospital yesterday, closer to his family in Santa Cruz. He is being assessed by Geoff Manley, the chief of neurosurgery at General and codirector of the hospital's Brain and Spinal Injury Center.
