Fans showed considerably more fight than the Los Angeles Dodgers, compounding an already demoralizing loss to the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks by fighting throughout the stadium during Monday’s playoff game.
Two men with long hair and LA jerseys threw themselves down into the restroom, another group was seen fighting with police and security in the concourse of Dodger Stadium, and two more individuals got into it in the parking lot after the 4 -2 D-Backs win.
The LAPD had no arrest records as of Tuesday afternoon and instead referred Mail Sport to Dodgers spokespeople, who said they “do not comment on security matters.”
Regardless of whether or not arrests have been made, Dodger Stadium lived up to its reputation as a dangerous venue on Tuesday. Previously, in 2003, a San Francisco Giants fan was killed during a post-game dispute with Dodger supporters, while another was left disabled after a 2011 attack outside the stadium.
Tuesday’s skirmishes weren’t nearly as expensive, but that doesn’t mean they were in any way routine.

The group that appeared to be taking on security and the LAPD was tackled by security guards and officers as two men bounced haymakers off each other’s faces before being split apart.
Not much is known about the context surrounding the fights.
Dodgers fans were clearly disgruntled to see the team trail the Diamondbacks 2-0 as the series moved back to Phoenix, but that hardly explains the violence on Tuesday night.
Some of the fights were laughable, like the fight in the bathroom between the two long-haired men, neither of whom seemed to have any experience with fighting.
Likely drunk, the two men exchanged several punches against each other, none of which were delivered with much force.
The physical confrontation was so innocuous that several men in the restroom used the facility without paying attention to the ongoing fistfight.
The second-seeded Dodgers will try to save their season in Game 3 on Wednesday night in Arizona.
