Lincecum to donate $25K to injured fan

BY foxsports • April 14, 2011

San Francisco Giants ace Tim Lincecum announced Thursday on his Facebook page that he would donate $25,000 to the fund set up for the Giants fan who was savagely beaten on Opening Day.

"I decided to contribute $25,000 to the Bryan Stow Fund to benefit the 42-year old Giants fan who was critically injured in an attack after the Giants-Dodgers game on March 31," Lincecum wrote on Facebook.

"This was a senseless act of violence and I wanted to help out Mr. Stow and his family. I encourage Giants fans to support Mr. Stow in a positive way and hope there are not any more unfortunate acts between fans in this great rivalry."

The two-time Cy Young winner made the announcement just days after players from both storied franchises came together for a pregame ceremony in honor of Stow and asked fans to respect one another.

Stow remains in a medically-induced coma two weeks after two unknown assailants, reportedly wearing Dodgers' gear, beat him in the parking lot following the Opening Day encounter between the two rival teams.

Investigators are still working to identify the two attackers. A $150,000 reward has been offered for information leading to an arrest.
