SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- A San Francisco Giants fan who was brutally beaten outside Dodger Stadium in 2011 has thrown the first pitch for the San Jose Giants home opener.

The San Jose Mercury News reports ( http://bayareane.ws/1DqQJVd ) that Bryan Stow used a walker to reach the mound Thursday. He tossed an underhand ball about 15 feet.

Stow says it was "a little scary" but he'd love to do it again.

The Giants are the farm team for the San Francisco Giants. They beat Bakersfield 10-5.

Stow said he plans to attend a San Francisco Giants game against the Los Angeles Dodgers next week.

Stow was beaten by two Dodgers fans and left with severe brain damage. He was awarded $18 million in damages in 2014. Two of his attackers are serving time in prison.
