Former Major League Baseball security expert testified Tuesday that opening day 2011 at Dodger Stadium boasted one of the largest security forces he had ever seen.

“The only time I saw a larger police presence was at the Yankee World Series 2009,” said Robert Campbell, a former Secret Service agent who had been employed as MLB’s liaison with the Dodgers.

The first witness called by the defense in the Bryan Stow civil trial that began three weeks ago, Campbell said he witnessed no security incidents throughout the game against the San Francisco Giants and that the Dodgers’ security command post appeared active and professional.

In a subsequent memo to MLB security, Campbell said there was one arrest involving a U.S. Marine who attempted to punch an off-duty police officer and that there were 92 ejections for “mostly alcohol-related reasons.”
