Barry Bonds to Pay for College of Beaten Giants Fan's Kids

The all-time home run king still has some pop left in his bat.

Former San Francisco Giants great Barry Bonds will pay for college for Bryan Stow's kids, according to NBCBayArea.com. Stow is the Giants fan who was severely beaten and left in a coma outside of Dodgers Stadium last month.

Stow family attorney Thomas Girardi tells the website that Bonds made the pledge to Stow's son and daughter after visiting the family in the hospital April 22.

Bonds also left an autographed baseball bat for Stow's kids.

Several other Giants, including pitcher Tim Lincecum, have visited Stow and his family, according to the website. Lincecum donated $25,000 to the Stow family fund.

Stow, 42, remains in critical but stable condition under heavy sedation to prevent seizures caused by the traumatic brain injury he suffered in the March 31 attack.

Police arrested Giovanni Ramirez, 31, over the weekend, but charges have not yet been filed against him. They have not identified a second attacker or a woman suspected of driving the pair from the scene. Police Chief Charlie Beck called Ramirez the main aggressor.
