Tim Lincecum has donated $25,000 to the Bryan Stow Fund, which will help pay the medical bills for the 42-year-old Giants fan who was attacked in a parking lot outside Dodger Stadium on Opening Day.

Stow remains hospitalized in a medically induced coma, with a $150,000 reward being offered for information leading to the arrest of his attackers.

In addition to the donation Lincecum wrote the following note on his Facebook page: “This was a senseless act of violence and I wanted to help out Mr. Stow and his family. I encourage Giants fans to support Mr. Stow in a positive way and hope there are not any more unfortunate acts between fans in this great rivalry.”

    It is extremely sad that some people take rivarly in sports to this kind of level. Heckling the other team and giving your friends who like other teams crap for it is always okay… Violence? Come on. This of course is an isolated incident.. but I still can’t believe it happened.

    Very nice gesture, Mr Lincecum.

    The Dodger organization, and guys at the MLB offices should take note. The Stow family shouldnt have to pay a dime of these medical expenses. They have enough to worry about.

    How can anyone not pick Lincecum as their favorite player? Him and Ichiro are just two awesome people.

      Answer: His haircut

      Nonetheless, this is an extremely stand-up gesture that should be headlined in the media, relative to the other scandals and Dykstras filling up the airwaves.

        ESPN had it on their main page last night, so it’s makin’ some news. The Giants also raised money at a ballgame and donated money on behalf of the organization to Stow. That’s a class A organization, in my opinion.

        I do wager that Dykstra will remain in the news a bit longer than this though…
