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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
