Fans keep it peaceful at World Series opener

While Pablo Sandoval was hitting home run after home run inside AT&T Park on Wednesday night during the World Series opener, fans outside the ballpark were searching for creative ways to see the action.

According to police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza, one determined fan was arrested for trying to climb the Lefty O’Doul Bridge just outside the south entrance of the ballpark in order to see the game.

But he didn’t get that lucky. The fan was pulled down from the bridge and cited for trespassing, Esparza said.

But other than that, Esparza said, the first game of the World Series was largely peaceful.

“When people pay $400, $500, $600, $700 or more for tickets, they’re not going to do anything to get arrested,” Esparza said. “As long as the Giants keep winning, everyone is happier.”

In case of an incident, Esparza said, there are extra uniformed officers and plainclothes police inside and outside AT&T Park.
