A long-time San Francisco Giants fan and father of two, 42-year-old Bryan Stow couldn’t wait for opening day to watch his favorite team play the Los Angeles Dodgers. But little did Stow know after making the 330-plus mile trek from Santa Cruz, California to LA on March 31 he would be fighting for his life, allegedly viciously attacked by angry Dodgers fans.
It was a close game that Thursday night with the Dodgers scraping out a 1-run win, beating the Giants 2-1. And that’s when the post-game heckling spiraled out of control. Ironically, during the game, Stow sent a text message to a cousin's wife insisting he was scared inside the stadium, according to his cousin John Stow.
