Bryan Stow to be moved to San Francisco hospital

3 Comments

Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium on March 31, is stable enough that he will transferred to a San Francisco hospital, according to the Associated Press.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reported earlier this week that Stow could potentially be moved closer to home.

Stow remains in a coma and is in critical condition, but he’ll be transferred to San Francisco General and Trauma Center as early as Monday morning. He has been treated at the Los Angeles County + University of Southern California Medical Center since the attack.

Here’s part of a message written by Stow’s family on their website:

“The day has finally come! Bryan is now stable enough to bring home up north. This time is so bittersweet…we are happy we get to bring Bryan home.”

The search for the attackers was bolstered this week after approximately 200 billboards with sketches of the suspects were unveiled in the Los Angeles area. Officials are currently offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to arrests and convictions.

Brewers have 3 positive COVID tests at alternate site

MILWAUKEE — The Brewers had two players and a staff member test positive for the coronavirus at their alternate training site in Appleton, Wisconsin.

Milwaukee president of baseball operations David Stearns confirmed the positive results Saturday and said they shouldn’t impact the major league team. Teams are using alternate training sites this season to keep reserve players sharp because the minor league season was canceled due to the pandemic.

Stearns said the positive tests came Monday and did not name the two players or the staff member. Players must give their permission for their names to be revealed after positive tests.

The entire camp was placed in quarantine.

“We have gone through contact tracing,” Stearns said. “We do not believe it will have any impact at all on our major league team. We’ve been fortunate to get through this season relatively unscathed in this area. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to get all the way there at our alternate site.”

Milwaukee entered Saturday one game behind the Reds and Cardinals for second place in the NL Central, with the top two teams qualifying for the postseason.

The Brewers still will be able to take taxi squad players with them on the team’s trip to Cincinnati and St. Louis in the final week of the season. He said those players have had repeated negative tests and the team is “confident” there would be no possible spread of the virus.

“Because of the nature of who these individuals were, it’s really not going to affect the quarantine group at all,” Stearns said. “We’re very fortunate that the group of players who could potentially be on a postseason roster for us aren’t interacting all that much with the individuals that tested positive.”
