Security was heightened at Dodgers Stadium for Game 3 of the National League division series on Sunday, Oct. 6, 2013.

Fans coming to see the Dodgers play the Atlanta Braves in Elysian Park also encountered a heavy law enforcement presence.  Officers were visible at the ball park’s entrances, in parking lots and in the stands.  Undercover officers were also patrolling the stadium.

“We want to make sure everybody has a great time and enjoys themselves, and with the LAPD presence and the security at Dodgers Stadium, I think everyone’s going to do that,” said Sgt. Art Koeing of the LAPD.

Bryan Stow, a paramedic, was beaten following an Opening Day game between the Dodgers and the Giants in 2011.  He suffered brain damage and was permanently disabled.

Two men, Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, were ordered to stand trial on charges stemming from the attack.  Both men have pleaded not guilty.
