The Dodgers-Giants rivalry outdates the majority of the people at Dodger Stadium on any given day, and its importance is proven by the fact that they raise the price of tickets when the Dodgers play at AT&T-SBC-Pac Bell-telecommunications merger conglomerate Park. The low point in this rivalry was that night back in 2003 when (while leaving the park) we heard that a Dodger-fan-turned-Giants-fan was shot and killed in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium. A tragic reminder that this is just a game after all. Murders aside, I've seen dozens of fights between Dodger fans and their rivals and attended a number of Dodger away games to face the away fan music myself. Given that I have survived with only minor injury, I provide the LAist reader with a guide to leaving the opposing team's stadium in one piece.
