About 15,000 fans gathered in the park on Wednesday. Since the series began, Dodgers fans have invaded the Astros’ home., with the present memory of the scandal that exposed the robbery of Houston signs, just from the season in which they beat LA in the World Series.
Looks to me that those Astros fans went to his seat not the other way around, they just lost the fight. That doesn’t make the Dodgers fan classless. It makes him the winner. pic.twitter.com/EthzgDF66J
