Want to hear something awesome? According to Lori Pruitt of NBC Bay Area, Bryan Stow is in attendance tonight at AT&T Park for Game 2 of the World Series against the Tigers.
This is believed to be the first game that Stow has attended since he was brutally beaten in the Dodger Stadium parking lot on March 31, 2011. Stow participated in a virtual first pitch in the Giants’ home opener this year along with his son, Tyler, and left-hander Jeremy Affeldt.
Janie McCauley of the Associated Press has confirmed that Stow is indeed at the game tonight as a guest of the Giants. Stow’s family has requested privacy, so it’s not clear whether he’ll be recognized during tonight’s game. But that doesn’t make it any less special.
UPDATE: According to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, the Giants displayed a message on the scoreboard before the top of the seventh inning that read, “A Giant Welcome to Bryan Stow and his Family.”
