Barry Bonds To Pay For Beaten Giants Fan’s Kids To Go To College
Former Major League Baseball player Barry Bonds has donated to pay for the college tuition of the two young children of Bryan Stow, the San Francisco Giants fan, who was beaten in the Dodger Stadium parking lot, back in April. Lori Preuitt, of nbcbayarea.com, has the story, below.
Former Major League Baseball player Barry Bonds leaves federal court on April 13, 2011 in San Francisco, California. After three and a half days of deliberation, a jury found Barry Bonds guilty on one count of obstruction of justice and was a hung jury on three counts of perjury for lying to a grand jury about his use of performance enhancing drugs.
The lawyer who now represents Bryan Stow’s family in a lawsuit against the Los Angeles Dodgers gave a new detail on a former Giants generosity to Stow’s two young children.
Stow family attorney Thomas Girardi said that former slugger Barry Bonds has donated to pay for their college education. He said the family has talked about turning other donations back to the fans if this suit is successful, but said the gift of a college of education is something they treasure and will keep.
Bryan is a single father. He has a son and a daughter who are both in grade school.
