Showing some improvement
​After spending a week in a coma, Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was brutally beaten by Dodgers fans last week, is showing his first signs of recovery.

ESPN reports that Stow's father, David Stow, said his son's temperature is down and his vital signs are "looking good."

Bryan Stow remains in a coma at a Los Angeles hospital after he was attacked outside the Dodger Stadium after the opener game last Thursday. He was walking to his car when two men wearing Dodgers gear heckled him and then beat him even after he was unconscious.

Bryan Stow suffered a fractured skull and bruising to his brain. Doctors removed part of his skull to relieve pressure from the brain swelling.

His father told reporters that it's difficult to see his son, a paramedic in Santa Cruz described as a "jokester" and an outgoing person, in this condition.

"It's been very hard. It's been stressful," David Stow told 710 ESPN Radio's Drew Belzer at a vigil Wednesday for his son. "He'll pull out of it."

Earlier this week, doctors said there was a chance that the 42-year-old might have brain damage. Even in the best-case scenario, he will have a long recovery, doctors say.

Police are still looking for the suspects; a $100,000 reward has been offered for information leading the arrest of the attackers.

iI just can't believe that out of over 100 people that were out in that parking lot Nobody saw anything!! Anyone with information about this terrible crime should come foward. Be brave and have some courage to do the right thing. Even if you personally know this people, speak up call 9-1-1- you don't even have to say who you are. Do this for your self because leaving with a secret like this, it will eat you up inside. Also think of that child that was with them in that car . They beat this poor man in front of him what kind of bastards do that . They scarred that child for life! Be strong help the Stow Family and that little boy. What kind of example have the set for that child.That child should not be with people with no souls!!! Be Strong and come foward. Do it for your self.

It is absolutely ridiculous that something like this had to happen. What is this world coming to when a person can't show support for their team in an open manner without having to worry about getting beat down. This is America, people, land of the free. We have the right to voice our own opinions and the right to root for who we want to. This is an outrage. Bryan, I hope you pull through, hang in their buddy. My prayers are with you and your family! I hope they catch whoever did this and lock them up and throw away the key. That's what they deserve.

This had nothing to do with baseball. This has to do with the continuing invasion of America by latin american countries. Latinos are obese, lazy and violent people. Even if these two violent men are not illegals they were undoubtably influneced by mexican culture, a culture that does not value life. I'm from California and I've seen first hand what these people are doing to our country. They take and take and take and make no contribution to the towns they live in and they laugh at the bleeding hearts who are giving it away to them. It's time to stop the talking and build this wall between mexico and the southern states. Next time it may be your son that is attacked or your daughter that is raped. Wether the libs like it or not - its us verses them.If Mr Obama knew what was good for this country he would end these ridiculous wars we are fighting a million miles away, bring home our boys and put them on the southern border. I assure you that 75,000 US troops on the border would put and end to the spill over violence from mexico and would put a real stop to the flooding of illegals into our country. We all know who is trying to hurt us and who IS hurting us but we are not allowed to say it. Stand up America.

The reason so many Hispanics are crimminals now is the same reason there used to be so many Black criminals. People like you don't want to hire them because you are racist. So since they can't find jobs they turn to crime just like poor people of many races do when they have no other way to suport there family. It starts out with selling drugs, stealing then it only gets worse. If you don't want them commiting crime then you should want them to be legal so they can find jobs pay for there kids to take sports that will keep them out of gangs and then they would pay more taxes and start bisnesses which would help our economy.

you should really run your comment through a spell check before you post. Your spelling is very distracting - it makes your argument mute

Yes you're right why should hard working people from Mexico be allowed to come here to try and support there families? If they want to be American they should have to come from a contnent all the way across the ocean and kill rape and still from the people who live here now right? If you don't like living in a country made up of immigrents then why don't you go back to Europe, Africa, the Middle East or where ever the hell you come from. I here stories all the time about White and Black men raping and killing young girls like a bunch of pedofiles but I don't try to have them sent back to there countries of orgin! It's sad how unpatreotic you are.

Travis have you ever watched America's Most Wanted? The vast, vast majority of the criminals this show is looking for are hispanics on the run in Mexico. That is not ignorant that is fact. Do I need to copy and paste crime statistics from Los Angeles that show the percentage of violent crimes that are perpetrated by hispanics compared to other races? Just give me the nod and I'll show you a bunch of truth that I guess hasn't filtered up to Santa Cruz.

Your a just biased fool. Race has nothing to do with behavior its their upbringing. Changing this assault into a racial crime is put simply the most stupid thing you could have done. Oh this reminds me of someone in particular.....hmmmm oh yeah! Do you remember that one guy Hitler? He persecuted people because of fictitious biased opinionated facts like you are doing right to innocent people. Get a better view of life or shut the hell up. You are not worth praying in all the religion this planet has to offer.

Aren't there cameras in the parking lot as well as the stadium? And with all of the fans lingering around the parking lot, you mean no one saw what happened?? No one can identify the two morons who did this? C'mon people - grow some courage and get these two!

Well Dodger stadium is ghetto beyond belief, so my guess is they don't have cameras out in the parking lot. Besides the "all you can eat" section, Dodger stadium is worst of the worst.

There was some sort of video; plus they exited in a car and there are other sources of video out there. I have faith they will be caught.

Whoever these fuckin pussies are that beat down an innocent man whose profession is to save peoples lives deserves to rot in hell. These dudes deserve to be tortured beyond belief

The two "Dodgers fans" are Hispanic gang members. If the races of the perpetrators and the victim had been reversed there would be non-stop coverage from the evil liberal media.

You are just as bad, if not worse, that your opinion of the very media you try to attack. This isn't a racial issue and stop trying to make it out to be one. Nor is this a media coverage issue. Plain and simple: a guy got beat up by two thugs and hopefully they will be caught and punished. If there is any issue we should be talking about, it is how uncivil people can be at a sporting even and how it's really only a game, not a threat to someone's territory. You are just plain sad and bitter.

This beating had nothing to do with baseball. It's all about gangs and violence that they inflict, plain and simple.

While I'm a Dodger fan, this is outrageous. It is only a game, and when we can't wear our team's colors to an opposing team's stadium, there's no more fun left. I'm praying for his full recovery even if he's a Giant!

Sad to say but, this is a typical scenario in modern sports. It's sad to hear that there were two attackers. Hey, if they had any beef with this guy why didn't they go "old school," one on one! I am not condoning this behavior at all, but the truth is anybody can be tuff and put a beat down on someone, especially if it is one against two or three!!! I'm praying for the full recovery of Brian Stow, and for the arrest of the PUNKS that did it!
