THE Los Angeles Dodgers San Francisco Giants rivalry is way older than the teams' half century California stints. Manhattan's Polo Grounds and Brooklyn's Ebbets Field were the most recent home to great baseball games between the two. But their New York City ties go back into the 19th century as two of the earliest teams in professional baseball. Chavez Ravine's Dodger Stadium and certainly San Francisco's AT Park are relatively new ball parks in the great scheme of things. Sandy Koufax and Willie Mays are relatively late in this time line of extraordinary sports heroism. The teams share a long and storied past, and the rivalry has given generation upon generation of American fans great joy. But there is no joy whatsoever in the rivalry today as a beaten Giants fan remains in a medically induced coma after Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential Og Infrared

But we were disappointed in the immediate response of Dodger ownership and management to the beating the attitude was essentially, Nike Air Max Dynasty Msl "Gee, too bad such an otherwise lovely day (the Boys in Blue beat the world champs 2 1, after all) was marred by this tragic incident." The fact is, many long time Dodger fans say the atmosphere in Dodger Stadium has changed markedly for the worse in recent years. There have been other incidents of violence in the parking lot before and after games. There is too much drinking, too much rowdiness. Even die hard baseball and lifelong Dodger fan Larry Mantle told his KPCC FM listeners in a discussion of the incident that this year he had turned down a friend's offer of tickets to the game. When the Giants are in town, he said, what had for decades been nothing more than an old fashioned rivalry has turned nasty and, yes, violent. It's good, in a symbolic sense, that in the days since the Dodgers, Giants and Major League Baseball have issued joint statements further deploring the atmosphere of violence. But that's cold comfort to Bryan Stow. It will take more than joint statements to blow away the dark cloud over Dodger Stadium, which makes parents question what should be the most family of atmospheres at any public setting in the Southland. It will, yes, require an increased security presence to ensure fan safety. But in the end, the answer lies within. Are we a people who can enjoy sports for the healthy competition among athletes and their fans, or are we simply unable to not treat a rivalry as if it were a do or die gang rumble instead of a Dodgers Giants game?

Wearing a Giants cap on the rivals' turf. Bryan Stow is a Santa Clara County paramedic who has saved the lives of many people who find themselves in a similar medical condition to his own. He is in such bad shape that doctors on Saturday removed a piece of his skull to allow his brain to reduce its swelling. "All he did was go to a baseball game," his friend and co worker, paramedic Samantha Tennison of Santa Cruz, told the San Francisco Chronicle. "It is such a loss. This doesn't just affect him.
