After thinking about the events that transpired just after the final out was recorded in the Dodgers 17-4 rout of the Milwaukee Brewers, it amazed me how Prince Fielder and his teammates were able to get to the Dodger clubhouse doors.

First of all Fielder and company would have had to get past the security in the visitor's clubhouse at the very right of the crude diagram above. Then they would have had to go through the tunnel doors to the hallway in the middle. One side of the hallway is roped off where two security guards are posted to keep fans separated. The other side leads to the elevators.

Fielder and company then had to enter the tunnel leading to the Dodgers clubhouse where there is a security guard posted. There's also a stairwell on one side of this spot and the tunnel leading to the field on the other side.

So to get to this point Fielder and company would have had to pass three security guards and a whole gang of fans armed with cameras and cellphones.
