San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow has finally been released from the hospital -- more than 6 months after he was beaten within an inch of his life in the Dodgers Stadium parking lot.
Stow has been making tremendous progress in his recovery -- recently talking with family members and friends.
Doctors say Stow will continue his treatment at an undisclosed long-term rehabilitation facility. Stow's doctor says his recovery will take years.
The 42-year-old paramedic's family released a statement -- saying, "We feel immense relief today, knowing that Bryan is ready to start the next chapter of his story."
Stow suffered severe brain injuries on March 31 after the Dodger's regular season opener against the Giants.
Two suspects have been charged in the beating -- both have plead not guilty.
