"Just to see what he's come through, and to be able to give him something back like this — it's just the kind of thing that resonates with everybody."...

    The family of beaten San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow says he took a “step forward” Friday when he mouthed his last name and maybe even tried to give a thumbs-up to medical staff. Stow’s family said in a blog post that the father of two was “very alert” Friday morning, when a nurse, nurse practitioner and neurosurgeon witnessed the gestures. The news comes less than a week after Stow had a 30-second seizure and underwent emergency surgery for fluid buildup in his head. Stow, a Santa Clara County paramedic, suffered serious brain injuries after he was attacked in March...

    Lawyers representing Giovanni Ramirez, the man authorities insist is the "prime suspect" in the Bryan Stow beating case, are offering more reasons why their client is not connected to this crime. One issue is that of his hair, or the suspect's lack thereof, according to NBC Los Angeles, as well as a few more as-yet unproved claims. According to his legal team, Ramirez "did not have a shaved head -- as the suspects are described -- at the time of the Dodger Stadium opening day assault on a Giants fan." Ramirez's attorneys explain that his client had grown his hair...

    Donations, contributions and other efforts have poured in after San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was beaten in a Dodger Stadium parking lot on Opening Day.

Former Giants star and embattled figure Barry Bonds has volunteered to pay for the college education of 12-year-old Tyler and 8-year-old Tabitha. "It was extraordinary of Barry Bonds, I thought," Stow family attorney Thomas Girardi told NBC Bay Area KNTV. "He didn't say anything about it to the press. This was just a gift...

    The family of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow, who was brutally beaten in the parking lot at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day, filed a civil suit against the Dodgers in Los Angeles Superior Court Tuesday morning. The suit seeks unspecified damages to cover Stow's future medical care and as compensation for the economic damages to Stow and his two children.

They've had all these incidents at their games, more than other teams....
