Bryan Stow attends World Series as Giants’ guest
Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who suffered brain injuries after being beaten outside of Dodger Stadium last year, watched the Giants win Game 2 of the Word Series Thursday night as a guest of the team.
“We are truly thrilled to have Bryan with us tonight at the World Series,” Giants CEO Larry Baer said. “It’s been a long road back. We’re very grateful he has progressed and could join us.”
Stow, a father of two and a paramedic from Santa Cruz, Calif., spent months in the hospital in a medically induced coma after the assault, which occurred on March 31, 2011. The Giants raised more than $70,000 for the Bryan Stow Fund last year, and Tim Lincecum himself donated $25,000.
The team did not announce exactly where in the ballpark Stow and his family were last night, out of respect for their privacy. They did announce his presence with a scoreboard message reading, “Welcome to Bryan Stow and his family,” which drew cheers from the AT&T Park crowd.
Stow’s family posts regular updates on his health and his progress through physical therapy at www.support4bryanstow.com.
