CBSLosAngeles The action at Dodger Stadium Monday night was in the stands. Two fans gave new meaning to the Angels-Dodgers rivalry in the first game of the annual Freeway Series as they took a tumble in the bleachers, tossing drinks and throwing punches. According to the guy who recorded the violent altercation, the ugly scene played out in the stadium’s Pavilion section. It started with a war of words between rival fans. In the end, the Angels fan is left bloodied and injured as security walks him off. Fans weren’t surprised by the escalation, but some were definitely disappointed. “That’s just wrong because there’s kids here,” said Jessica Montes. “You know, it’s a family thing, and I think it’s pretty bad.” “This isn’t your life. It’s just a game,” said Lauren Norman. Security is top of mind for Dodgers fans. Everyone remembers the fight involving Brian Stowe, the Giants fan who was beaten into a coma outside Dodger Stadium. He suffered severe brain injuries.
As a huge sports fan, it seems like baseball games between California teams is the most violent sporting event that you can attend, California baseball fans are constantly beating the crap out of each other. This video comes to us from Monday, when the Anaheim Angels visited the Los Angeles Dodgers, and fans of the two teams were caught on video brawling in the stands with horrified small children nearby. Luckily, this time the Angels fan just ended up with a bloody nose, nobody was shanked or curb stomped until they had brain damage. If you are a fan of a team that is visiting Chavez Ravine to take on the Dodgers, maybe leave your team colors at home when you attend the game, you do not want to get jumped by Dodgers fans.
