LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Bryan Stow has spoken out for the very first time about the brutal attack at Dodger Stadium that left him severely brain damaged more than three years ago.
The San Francisco Giants fan did so while cheering on his beloved team in the World Series alongside ESPN reporter Shelly Smith.
"Being alive, waking up every morning and knowing I'm here," Stow says, makes him feel happy.
On Opening Day 2011 at Dodger Stadium, Stow was savagely beaten by Dodgers fans Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez.
"Had I known, I would have turned to see the guy running at me, and ready to clock my block," Stow said.
Stow doesn't remember most of the details from that night. His parents, Dave and Ann Stow, say they've filled in the blanks.
He is now living with his parents in the Northern California house he was raised in. Insurance ran out in June for full-time residential care.
"I was always waiting for that time when I could bring my baby back home to have him here so we could take care of him," Ann Stow said, tearing up.
Stow's family says he requires 24-hour care.
"I want to run, I want to walk like a normal person," Stow said.
Stow's parents say his short-term memory remains a major issue, but he certainly remembers his love of the Giants and his sense of humor.
"Is 5-0 good enough to win this?" Smith asks him.
Stow replies, "No, I'm thinking 10-nothing. 10-nothing!"
