Dodger Stadium

Since the grave beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow on Opening Day in 2011, the Los Angeles Dodgers have made more of an effort to create a safe environment at Dodger Stadium. One of the more drastic changes was fans are no longer permitted to tailgate in the lots

With Opening Day of the 2015 season only four days away, there’s been plenty of news out of Dodger Stadium, including a dedicated lane of entry into the stadium for those who have purchased in advance, the introduction of metal detectors as part of the screening process and additional food options.

Adding to the changes, at least for Opening Day, the LAPD and Dodgers announced fans will not be able to park on the Avenue of the Palms between 5 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday and alcohol won’t be permitted in city parks:

Last season, the Dodgers lost to the San Francisco Giants on Opening Day at Chavez Ravine. First pitch against the San Diego Padres is scheduled for 1:10 p.m., with stadium and auto gates opening at 10 a.m.

    At least be honest about it! WTF did “tailgating” in the Dodger Stadium parking lot have to do with the inexcusable assault upon, Mr. Stowe, which occurred AFTER the game? I certainly understand the Dodgers wanting to make as much money as possible, but at least be honest about the motive!
