Giants' World Series Trophy to Appear at Benefit Show for Bryan Stow at Sweetwater Tonight

Champs third-base coach Tim Flannery is in the midst of a series of shows to benefit the Giants fan who was severely injured in a 2011 attack. It will the trophy's only appearance in Marin.

San Francisco Giants third-base coach Tim Flannery, who is also a musician, is playing a benefit concert for Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was severely injured in an attack outside Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles in 2011 at the Sweetwater Music Hall Friday night, and the Giants 2012 World Series trophy will be in the house.

Flannery and his band the Lunatic Fringe played its first benefit show for Stow at Fox Theatre in Redwood City earlier this week, and will also play on Saturday at Napa's Uptown Theatre; and on Sunday at Kuumbwa Jazz in Santa Cruz, Stow's hometown. 

Friday night's show at the Sweetwater is sold out.

Stow, a paramedic and father of two, suffered a serious head injury in the March 31, 2011, attack outside Dodger Stadium. Two men, Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood, were arrested months later and are awaiting trial.

Flannery, who has been a coach during both of the Giants' recent World Series wins in 2010 and 2012, has raised about $70,000 to help with Stow's medical bills and held a large benefit concert last year in Napa with Bob Weir from the Grateful Dead, according to team officials.

Stow's family, who has posted regular updates on his progress on the website www.support4bryanstow.com, wrote a post earlier this month mentioning Flannery's efforts and others who have helped to raise money for Stow.

"We are still so humbled by the fact that, even though it's almost been two years, people have not forgotten and still want to support Bryan and his family," the post read.

More information about Flannery's shows and how to purchase tickets available on his website at www.timflannery.com.

The World Series trophy is in the midst of a tour but has no scheduled stops in Marin.
