LAPD Working with Dodgers Players to Keep Homes Safe During World Series

October 23, 2018 - 8:29 am

(KNX 1070) - The Los Angeles Police Department has been working with top Dodger players to ensure their homes are safe while they're away playing in Boston in the World Series.

The first game is Tuesday afternoon

Evan Rosenblum of TMZ Sports tells KNX that it follows a series of burglaries at the homes of celebrities and sports stars. He says that police have also continued extra patrols in the neighborhoods where the players live. Dodgers player Yasiel Puig's home was hit by burglars during Game 7 of the World Series last year.

Earlier this month, four suspects were arrested in connection with a string of burglaries that targeted the homes of celebrities, including Puig and Rams wide receiver Robert Woods. LeBron James also beefed up security at his Los Angeles residence in October after joining the Lakers.  The new Laker was recently noted as a target for thieves who have been stealing from celebrity homes.  

KNX reporter Jon Baird:

Meanwhile, Dodger fans are eager to see their boys in blue bring another World Series Championship to Los Angeles.

But where can you watch the game Tuesday afternoon? 

KNX reporter Margaret Carrero reports there's 33 Taps in Silver Lake, which will be having Dodger events all week, according to manager Corrie Brashars. Carrero reported that Brashars has been a fan since she was a little girl and feels good about the Dodgers and their chances of winning.

In Highland Park, the Greyhound was voted best bar to watch the Dodgers by LA Weekly a few years ago. Bartender Erik Contreras told Carrero he is expecting full capacity for Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday.

The Greyhound also has a blue hour with menu items named after iconic players.
