Giants Fans Treat Baseball Like War

May 02, 1987

It is unreal the way some of the San Francisco Giant fans act toward the Dodgers at Candlestick Park. The way the fans throw things at the Dodgers, and yell obscenities that can clearly be heard on radio and television is just disgusting.

About six years ago, I was visiting San Francisco and went to Candlestick to see a Giants-Dodgers game. I could not believe the way some of the fans act when they go to a baseball game. Instead of them going to the game to enjoy it and have fun, they act like it is a war. I saw one fan throw a beer bottle at Jay Johnstone and another player as they walked across the field. The bottle just missed their heads. I feel that Giant management needs to do something about providing better security at Candlestick Park.
