Dodgers to raise funds again tonight for Bryan Stow; team makes promised donation

Ljcvirnc The Dodgers will again be collecting donations at tonight's game at Dodger Stadium for the Bryan Stow fund.

The team said it previously received over $61,000 in donations at a Monday stadium drive-through event for Stow, the Giants fan who was the victim of a brutal beating on opening day at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers also said they have made a contribution to the Stow fund, but that the amount is a private matter between the team and family.

The Dodgers have invited members of American Medical Response, where Stow is employed as a paramedic, to collect the donations tonight. They are scheduled to be stationed at every level of the ballpark, behind home plate.

Funds can also be donated online through the San Francisco Police Credit Union.

Stow remains in a medically induced coma, and doctors fear he has suffered brain damage.

Let's hope that the perpetrators of this terrible act are brought to justice swiftly and thoroughly. Prayers for Mr. Stow. Wish him a speedy recovery.

Steve,
Over the years, I have never sat in one of the pavilions. Does a person get to them from behind the home plate entrance?

Players are always talking about giving back to the fans; now would be a good time? AND no, that doesn't mean raising money by selling your autograph.

If Frank McCourt and the Dodgers are paying Bryan Stow's medical expenses...it would be of interest to all the fans suggesting this as an appropriate humanitarian gesture.

StanL: No you have to enter the pavilions from the outfield side, but the Dodgers said there will now be donation booths in the pavilion area too.

THX for the response as I didn't know. Now, do you know the police breakdown ratio between the behind the homeplate and pavilion areas?

Let's go anyone who hasn't contributed. It feels a lot better when you do.

They have absolutely got to catch the perps. It's good to see stadium security finally getting the attention deserves, and heartbreaking to read about Stow's condition, but it would be at least a small consolation if we knew the thugs who did this are behind bars.

It's really worrying that we haven't heard *any* good news from Stow's doctors, any signs of progress at all.

They need to rename the stadium Parking Lot in his honor.


Lord knows that McCourt has none ....
