SAN FRANCISCO — Tim Flannery, the San Francisco Giants' third-base coach and musician, presented the family of Bryan Stow with $96,000 during the weekend to help with his care as he continues to deal with traumatic injuries and brain damage from being severely beaten outside Dodger Stadium on opening day 2011.

And more money is still coming.

Flannery received a thank-you voicemail from Stow, the father and former paramedic who struggles to put thoughts and words together nearly three years after the attack.

Flannery and his band, The Lunatic Fringe, just concluded a series of four Northern California concerts benefiting Stow, while all dollars from purchases of Flannery's 11th album, "Outside Lands," go to Stow.

Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt contributed $25,000 to match Flannery's initial total, while Will Clark wrote a $10,000 check.
