In Los Angeles, CA, violence broke out among fans at the San Francisco Giants vs. Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game. A Giants fan, wearing a Giants jersey, was nearly beaten to death outside Dodger Stadium on March 31. Sources state that he was hospitalized after the brutal attack, in a coma for a week, and he may suffer brain damage.
A similar incident occurred in Oakland, CA, outside Oracle Arena between fans of the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers fan, wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey, was taunted during and after the game. Three Warriors fans violently confronted him after the game, breaking his jaw.
Many are concerned about the violence that has occurred with sports fans recently. Sports psychologists say there is more aggressive acting out by athletes on the field lately and this is being mirrored in the behaviors of the fans. Aggression has turned opposing fans violent toward one another, resulting in serious injuries.
