Injured Giants fan Bryan Stow will be released from San Francisco General Hospital and to a rehab center, doctors announced Tuesday.

The news comes after several weeks of positive reports about Stow's health.

Stow, who suffered brain damage in the March attack at Dodger Stadium,  has shown significant progress since undergoing shunt surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. He had begun talking and interacting with his family.
