LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two men have pleaded guilty in Los Angeles to a 2011 beating at Dodger Stadium that left San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow brain damaged and disabled.

Defendants Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez entered their pleas Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Both are to be sentenced after the judge hears victim impact statements.

Stow, a 45-year-old paramedic from Santa Cruz, was beaten in a parking lot after 2011's opening day game between the Giants and Dodgers. He suffered brain damage and is permanently disabled, requiring 24-hour-a-day care.

The beating prompted increased security and heightened concerns over fan violence at sports venues around the country.
