SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants today announced that it will dedicate its first home game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in honor of Bryan Stow. Bryan was attacked and suffered critical injuries following the season opener in Los Angeles last week.

The Giants will collect donations at AT&T Park on Monday, April 11 to benefit a fund established to support Bryan and his family. Additionally, on Opening Day, Friday, April 8 the team will pay tribute to him during its pre-game ceremonies.
Bryan is a father, paramedic and lifelong Giants fan who has dedicated himself to caring for others. Now he needs our support as he fights for his life following this brutal and unconscionable act of violence, said Bill Neukom, Giants Managing General Partner and CEO.
