LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt took the stand Friday in the Bryan Stow beating trial.

Stow was attacked in a parking lot at Dodger Stadium after a 2011 Opening Day game against the San Francisco Giants.

Attorneys for Stow, who suffered severe injuries, say McCourt and the team didn’t provide adequate security.

McCourt testified that he didn’t find out the two officers assigned to the parking lot where Stow was beaten were not present until years after the incident.

The defense, however, says there was more security at that game than any other Dodgers opener in history.

Outside the courtroom, McCourt told the media that Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez, who were convicted in the attack, are to blame.

“You know, I really appreciated the opportunity to be able to address the jurors today regarding the Bryan Stow matter,” McCourt said. “And like all Dodger fans, I was appalled at the criminal behavior of Sanchez and Norwood. And make no mistake, they’re the parties responsible for this tragic incident.”

Stow suffered brain damage from the beating and has not attended the trial since the jury was selected.

His attorneys say it could cost $50 million to provide him with a lifetime of care.
