Dodgers Fans, Including Pregnant Woman, Beaten at Angels Stadium After Exhibition Game
LA Weekly ^ | April 11, 2011 | Dennis Romero

Looks like Dodgers fans aren't just dishing out the hooliganism these days. A pregnant woman and her brother, both apparently Dodgers fans, were hospitalized after they were beaten, allegedly by Angels fans, following an exhibition game between L.A. and the Angels at Angels Stadium.

A blogger's account of the dust-up described it as a fan-based outbreak of violence that put the woman and her brother in the hospital. The game was March 29. Both victims were released from the hospital within 24 hours, police said.

Sgt. Rick Martinez of the Anaheim Police Department downplayed the clash, saying ...

... both groups got into it over which team was superior. (In other words, he indicated, both sides appeared to duke it out. This wasn't a home-team party's beat down of opposing fans, per se).

A poster at thedirty.com says the woman, 7-months pregnant, jumped in after her brother, in a Dodgers shirt, was jumped by a group of four Angels fans walking behind them and taunting them.

The woman was kicked and pummeled while she was down, according to the blog. Her companion, said to be her husband, jumped in too and helped to break it up.

The poster states that the woman ...

... Started going into labor prematurely and the baby is being given medication to help his lungs develop. His heart rate keeps falling though and doctors are unsure about whether he's going to make it. The blog has her brother as having also been injured. Cops say it was her boyfriend who was hospitalized.

Martinez of Anaheim PD:

There was a fight between two groups of opposing fans. It was a result of some comments made regarding one team and then the victims said something worse about the opposing team, which escalated to a physical confrontation. As a result the male had a laceration under his eye with bruising. Both victims were treated released.

While cops were indeed looking for the other party, he said the victims gave them little to go on in terms of physical descriptions.

How can fans be so angry when they live in the socialist mecca of the Republik of Kalifornistan? Shouldn’t they be enjoying their socialist bliss?

Why do I think the attackers were speaking a foreign language?

All this macho-man b*(*&^%t (please forgive the expression)
is amusing. Maybe, one day, they’ll get it back one hundred times over.

IMHO

I’m a Raiders fan too...which goes over real well here in San Diego where fighting and even stabbings are not uncommon. Attended a lot of Ram’s games at Anaheim too. It was not uncommon to see the same sort of behavior when the Gay Bay was in town. Alcohol was/is usually the common denominator.

Because they act like soccer fans at an out-of-season sport?

BOLO for male Hispanics (i.e. Mexicans), shaved heads, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, wearing baggy clothing. No hay problema.

Not true,
A few years ago I was watching an Oakland Raiders game.
Some moron in a Kansas City Jersey started arguing with some very large menacing Raider fans who knocked this moron out and were passing him up to the top of the stadium where they were stopped by security while trying to throw the guy out the top of the stadium.

1080p high-definition television w/ 240 Hz refresh... in my living room and it won't hit me when I cheer for my team.

It is rare I go to live sporting events these days... too many drunk fans, expensive... no longer fun.

I just hope that fans of my SF Giants show some class when the Dodgers arrive to play tonight.

Yea, not too safe to wear opposing team’s shirt to a Raiders game. You might make it if you don’t talk trash about the Raiders or show enthusiam when the other team scores.
