SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Giants fan who was brutally beaten at Dodger Stadium has received a surprise visit at the hospital from San Francisco reliever Jeremy Affeldt.
Affeldt said he shared a prayer with Bryan Stow and his family Tuesday. He introduced himself to Stow, held his hand and prayed for a speedy recovery.
Affeldt said Stow opened his eyes and seemed responsive. He presented Stow with a banner from the Giants and gave some team apparel to his family members.
Affeldt had addressed fans along with Dodgers second baseman Jamey Carroll before the teams played shortly after the attack, telling the crowd violence has no place in the rivalry.
The 42-year-old Stow remains in critical but stable condition and is under heavy sedation to prevent seizures caused by the traumatic brain injury.
