Bryan Stow Won't Attend Home Opener

It appears that the San Francisco Giants' home opener will be missing two things: Rain and Bryan Stow.

Almost a year after the Giants' fan was beaten into a coma after watching his hometown team play the Los Angeles Dodgers at Chavez Ravine Stadium, Stow is still not well enough to attend a baseball game.

The Giants had approached the Stow family about possibly having the fan throw out the ceremonial first pitch at the team's home opener at AT&T Stadium this Friday.

But Stow still has a long road to recovery.

"We're concerned it might tire him out too much and set back his recovery," his mother Ann Stow told The San Jose Mercury News' Mark Purdy. "He's still getting used to his new place."

The family was reportedly open to the idea of Stow making a public appearance and that might happen later in the summer, but for now they are focused on his recovery.

And the team may still take a moment on Friday to honor the super fan on Friday even with him an area code away.
