Dodgers fans 'critically' beat Giants fan

The Dodgers defeated the Giants on the field in Thursday night's season-opener, but apparently that wasn't enough for a pair of Dodgers fans.

LAPD is currently searching for two men who severely beat three men wearing Giants clothes following the game. The assailants were reportedly wearing Dodgers gear and followed the three Giants fans after the game. The attack, which was said to be unprovoked, occurred 8:30 p.m. PT in the parking lot. As the two were kicking and punching the victims, they were also reportedly yelling expletives about the Giants. One man is critically injured.

"The man suffered a serious head injury during the assault after the game,'' said Los Angeles Police Department Sgt. Sanford Rosenberg. (LA Times ).

Police are actually asking for the help of what they believe was a large group of witnesses to the beatings. Police Detective Larry Burcher said there was "nothing of great value" found on stadium security cameras and has asked anyone who recorded the incident on a cell phone or video camera to come forward with the evidence.

"We're very confident there were witnesses, it happened immediately following the game when everybody was coming out," Burcher said.

The Dodgers have issued a statement on the situation:

"It is extremely unfortunate that this incident took place on what was otherwise a great day at Dodgers Stadium for tens of thousands of fans. We're committed to having the most fan and family friendly environment in baseball and will continue to make that a top priority."

Let's hope the perpetrators of this sad and cowardly act are brought to justice. There's no place for this junk in being a fan of professional sports -- which are supposed to be fun.

Classy.  Punching a paramedic and father of two in the back of the head as he is walking away.  Way to go Dodger fans.  Hopefully they will get 15 years in orange jumpsuits.

L.A gangster trash.  Another example of the scum that live in California and L.A.  The state and particularly the city of L.A is full of minority hoodlum welfare rats that suck the hard working americans dry.

"Unprovoked"?  Unlikely, and uncorroborated.  Anymore, all it takes is a little trash talk.  How the hell do the police even know this?  What, did they ask the victims?

Wow, talk about a lame statement from the Dodgers: "Yeah, so our fans beat up a couple of fans. Sorry about that. On a more positive note, anybody see the game? We're looking good this year!"

 I've  been to many Angel games and have never seen anything like this disgusting act!
So, you missed the murder there on opening night, inside the stadium, two years ago?

I hope the victim recovers from his serious head trauma and my prayers go out to his friends and family.

Some People just love to get into fights!!  they look for ANY opportunity to Throw!!!  and they usually are the ONES  who didnt have someone to look up to  like a Dad, Pops, Father figure..   So they didnt learn how to be a GOOD person at a young age!!   Its really sad if you cant go to a sporting event to watch and have a great time at the ballpark.. without wanting to punch someone you dont even KNOW!!
