LOS ANGELES (AP) — A prayer vigil is planned for a San Francisco Giants fan who was savagely beaten by two men wearing Los Angeles Dodgers gear after the season opener.

Community activists, clergy members and the family of Bryan Stow will gather Wednesday evening outside Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center where Stow remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Police said Stow, a paramedic from Santa Cruz, was punched in the back of the head by two unidentified assailants and fell to the pavement after the Dodgers' 2-1 victory over the Giants on March 31. A $100,000 reward is being offered.

The vigil is organized by The Wall-Las Memorias Project, which helps Latinos with HIV and AIDS. The group is urging the public to combat violence and alcohol abuse among young adults.
