Bryan Stow to Benefit From Dodger Fans Viral Video

NBC Bay Area

Casey Johnstone of Burlingame throw the first pitch at Tuesday's Dodgers vs. Giants game.

A viral YouTube video of a 10-year-old Burlingame boy talking about being the only Los Angeles Dodgers fan at his school now has ties to Bryan Stow.

The boy, Casey Johnstone, and his family have pledged to give money from the video to Stow, according to a Yahoo report.

Casey announced during his 5th grade graduation speech that the worst day of the school year for him was the day the Giants won the World Series.

He said being a Dodger fan in the Bay Area was tough going on most days, but nearly unbearable when the Orange and Black took the title.

His dad put the video clip on YouTube so that family could see, but it went viral. 

YouTube pays out ad revenue to people whose videos are very successful online.

The video of Casey's speech has been viewed more than 147,000 times (and climbing), which has generated $120, Yahoo reports.
