LOS ANGELES, May 16 (UPI) -- A man beaten nearly to death after the Los Angeles Dodgers' home opener is being moved to San Francisco Monday, his family said.

Bryan Stow, a paramedic from Santa Cruz who suffered severe brain damage, "has been responsive to stimulation, and while he doesn't do it on command, his eyes have been opening," the family wrote on its blog. "We had not been getting eye movement, except within the past few days, with them opening today. Again, not sure if it's involuntary, but it's another 'we'll take it' moment."

Stow is being transferred from County USC Medical Center to San Francisco General Hospital, the Los Angeles Times reported.

At a news conference in Los Angeles Sunday, Ann Stow, his mother, said: "This truly is the city of angels. On behalf of our family, we would like to say thank you to the community that has embraced Bryan and supported him.''

Los Angeles police are seeking two men who attacked the San Francisco Giants fan March 31 and a woman who drove them away from the scene.
