The Dodgers home opener is sold out and, a year after Bryan Stow was beaten nearly to death, security is, not surprisingly, tight. And clever:
On Tuesday, scores of uniformed Los Angeles Police Department officers patrolled the stands, the huge parking lots and the entrance.
Undercover officers wearing Pirates jerseys also were on hand.
“At every game this season, we’re going to have undercover officers in the opposing team jerseys,” Sgt. Mitzi Fierro said. “If somebody is going to harass a fan from an opposing team, it increases the possibility of them coming in contact with a police officer. It kind of requires people to be on their best behavior.”
I wonder if they’re speaking Yinzer too. That would be cool.
