Earlier today I wondered what the Dodgers would do once the security theater on display at Dodger Stadium would run its course. Bill Shaikin reports that MLB is wondering too, and has sent a security task force to assess the situation. It’s a six-man crew led by MLB exec John McHale, Jr. They’ll be on-site all weekend checking out how the Dodgers do business. They’ll “be the eyes and ears” for Bud Selig, who has been monitoring the situation closely, McHale says.
I’d have to guess that Major League Baseball would prefer it if good stadium security did not mean sending eleventy billion uniformed and sometimes mounted police officers to crawl the ballpark grounds like the Dodgers had the LAPD do last night.
