The family of a Giants' fan beaten at Dodger Stadium on the opening day of baseball season is still hoping for a miracle.

Attackers' Descriptions: Police Sketches

Family members believe they've already gotten a small one.

Bryan Stow's condition has stabilized enough for him to be moved to San Francisco, they said in an exclusive interview with NBCLA. The family is now making arrangements to transfer the comatose medical technician to UC San Francisco Medical Center.

"Today's a little bit of a rough day, even though he's going in the progression that we want," said sister Erin Collins. "It's still really hard to look at my older brother laying there. We're just looking for any sign that he can hear us."

Stow was injured nearly seven weeks ago and he survived brain surgery that only one in 10 patients in his condition survive.

But he remains in a coma and his family remains by his side.

Moving him nearer to his home in Northern California will make things easier for his family. The family members said they will miss the people who have cared for Bryan since the attack.

"That's going to be one of the hardest things to do -- to say goodbye to them," said Ann Stow, Bryan Stow's mother. "We have so many friends here that we would not have met had it not been for this journey we're on. They are life-long friends."

Authorities have not made any arrests in the case. Billboards with descriptions of the attackers will be unveiled Thursday in LA.

"One good tip will lead to these guys, and that would be great," said Bryan Stow's father.
