Opening Day at Dodger Stadium went off without a hitch. There was plenty of fighting, gun-waving, knife play, vandalism and general mayhem to keep everyone on their toes.
The Dodgers won 11-1 and Orlando Hudson hit for the cycle, but apparently the real action took place in the parking lot. A 30-year-old man was stabbed after getting into an argument with two men who drove off in "a black Ford F-150 pickup truck with a broken back window." The man was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Police also responded to a man waving a gun in another parking lot and a brawl outside the stadium, involving as many as 30 people. Oh, and a car accident. So awesome time at the ballpark.
Of course, we don't mean to pick on the National Leaguers. Lost in the news of Nick Adenhart's death last week was the story of a fan who was killed in fight on the concourse at Angels Stadium during their home opener. Basically, you should just stay away from all Southern California baseball activities for the time being. It's just not worth it.
