It was a very special Thanksgiving for the family and friends of Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was severely beaten outside of Dodger Stadium on Opening Day.

The family updated their website Thursday with a new photo of Stow, which can be seen below, along with the following caption:

“It has been a long time since our whole family was together on Thanksgiving and we could not feel more thankful and blessed. Our friends Brian and Steve from Los Angeles who are now a part of this growing family, joined us and Bryan for an amazing Thanksgiving dinner.”

Stow was moved to a San Francisco-area rehab facility in October and continues to show encouraging signs of progress. A recent update from the family’s website says that he has moments of “confusion, answering questions wrong or just not knowing the answers,” but that “he remembers the important things in his life; his children, his family, his friends, his favorite football and baseball teams.”

After scoring two quick runs against Astros starter Dallas Keuchel in Game 3 of the ALCS on Tuesday evening, the Red Sox offense threatened again in the third. J.D. Martinez and Xander Bogaerts drew back-to-back two-out walks, bringing up Steve Pearce, who hits lefties quite well. With a 2-2 count, Pearce lifted an 81 MPH slider towards the Crawford Boxes in right field, a mere 315 feet away from home plate. Left fielder Tony Kemp, listed at 5’6″, ranged back, timed his jump and crashed into the scoreboard while holding onto the ball. The catch prevented two runs from scoring which would have extended the Astros’ deficit. Instead, the score remained 2-1.

Kemp’s catch will certainly be in the running for the best play of the postseason.
