6:21 am
an earlier stall keeping things slow, but not all that bad. 6:20. as any baseball fan will tell you, there are days when nothing seems to go right. this morning one baseball fan in particular is a big hit for that very reason. >> let's just say the scouts were not impressed with one fan in the front row of last night's game at yankee stadium. he looks so unassuming there. first, he botches the ball, harder to catch than it does. strike one. later, he couldn't quite grab a bouncer that came into the stands. strike twochlt then when the ball boy gently tossed him a ball, it bounced off of his face. that was a pop fly from earlier. you can be sure that after -- there you go. that's pretty rough. after strike three, even his date started to leave a little more space in the seats. >> she put her face in her hands, too. it's 6:21. maybe it's not his forte.

6:35 am
fight caught in the parking lot on cell phone video that went viral just last month. it was 9ers fans beating a vikings fan. that has stadium authority's full attention. add to that the lawsuit filed yesterday by the fans beaten in the stadium bathroom last year. they're suing the team and the santa clara stadium authority. despite those violent videos, the police chief says the stadium is safe now, but will be safer by the time the super bowl comes to town. here are the numbers we mentioned. in the 13 nfl football games hosted here at levi stadium, 830,000 fans have moved through. there have been 1800 calls for police service and 319 people have been arrested, mostly for public drunkenness, which is why that part of the strategy is to crack down on alcohol-related issues and making season ticket holders accountable. >> if they assault one another, we need to prosecute them. if they're a seen ticket holder,
6:36 am
we need to revoke their season tickets. if they're not and they bought them from someone else, we need to hold those people accountable, too. >> reporter: here is the high-tech part of the strategy, in anticipation, the stadium is looking at law enforce. and the stadium to develop better security platform allowing better and faster collaboration, allowing all agencies to see the trouble makers on closed security cameras in realtime so they can get to them a lot faster. ? santa clara, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> seen one too many of those gruesome videos. speaking of which, a high school football coach in oakland under investigation for what he appears to be doing in a video posted on social media. carlos anderson of mcclimate high school is seen shoving a student back in his seat on a bus almost two weeks ago. someone anonymously posted the video on twitter this week. the football team was headed back to oakland after a game when that altercation happened.
