This is something I should have done back when the Bryan Stow incident occurred in Los Angeles, but not believing this blog had enough readership to warrant it, I neglected to do so.
Well, not this time. The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation has set up a memorial account in honor of Shannon Stone, the fan who lost his life at the Rangers' game last week, a game he was attending with his six-year old son, Cooper.
The link in the paragraph above will take you to the donation form, which is a secure page on Major League Baseball's web site and includes the following verbiage:
All funds donated to this account will directly benefit the Stone family. The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation will not benefit in any way.
And, since I brought up the subject, Stow's condition was upgraded from critical to serious last month, providing a glimmer of hope to an otherwise dire situation. The Bryan Stow fund can still be found on the web site of the San Francisco Police Credit Union.
