    Dodgers: Bottoms Up to Beer Sales

    The Los Angeles Dodgers are considering dropping a plan to sell beer at half price in the wake of the Opening Day attack in a stadium parking lot that left San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow in a coma, a team executive confirmed on Saturday.

    The Dodgers will also review prices and serving sizes for alcohol, and when to stop serving alcohol, vice president of communications Josh Rawitch told the Los Angeles Times.

    The team plans on selling food and beverage items at half price at six midweek day games beginning April 21.

    Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck told The Times he believed beer and alcohol consumption contribute to fan misbehavior at Dodger Stadium.

    Dodger owner Frank McCourt said at a news conference Friday that he didn't think “the sale of beer is a problem per se. I think it's the abuse of that privilege.”
