A spokeswoman for the Giants said Stow’s family requested privacy and the team didn’t announce where in AT&T Park Stow was watching the game from. During the game the scoreboard greeted Stow with the message: “Welcome to Bryan Stow and his family.” The announcement generated a cheer from fans.
The Giants raised more than $70,000 for the Bryan Stow Fund in 2011 alone, and third base coach Tim Flannery held two benefit concerts last season. The team has more events planned for this winter, and Flannery actually has an additional check to present to the Stow Family. Pitcher Tim Lincecum personally donated $25,000 to assist Stow’s family back in April of 2011.
