Laurie Condren of San Jose holds a collection bucket for Giants fan Bryan Stow the week after his attack on April 11, 2011 in Los Angeles.

Doctors say the San Francisco Giants fan who was severely beaten outside Dodgers Stadium has been released from the hospital and transferred to a rehabilitation facility.

Bryan Stow's move into rehab is step forward in his recovery after being in hospitals for nearly seven months.

Stow suffered serious brain injuries from the March attack in the stadium parking lot after the Los Angeles Dodgers' home opener. Two men have been charged in the beating.

Doctors at San Francisco General Hospital have predicted a long road for Stow's recovery, though his family recently reported that the Santa Cruz father of two is speaking and moving his limbs again.

Dr. Geoff Manley, the hospital's neurosurgery chief, says Stow was released Tuesday to an undisclosed rehab facility.
