Since last year's brutal attack at Dodgers Stadium left Giants fan Bryan Stow with severe brain injuries, San Francisco and the Giants have rallied behind Stow's recovery. Players visited him in the hospital, Tim Lincecum personally donated $25,000 to assist with medical expenses and Stow's son threw out the first pitch at a game earlier this season.

But one monumental moment--Stow's return to a Giants game--did not happen this season. It happened at game two of the World Series on Thursday night.

Without cameras and media fanfare (his family requested privacy), Stow attended his first game since the attack as a guest of the Giants.

"We are truly thrilled to have Bryan with us tonight at the World Series," said Giants CEO Larry Baer to the Associated Press. "It's been a long road back. We're very grateful he has progressed and could join us."

According to NBC, Stow's visit was not announced before the game, nor was it mentioned on his family's blog. However, fans spotted Stow outside the park before the game. Finally, a mid-game scoreboard announcement read "Welcome to Bryan Stow and his family." The stadium erupted with cheers and applause.
