Today is Lon Simmons’ 90th birthday. Lon started broadcasting Giants games when they moved to San Francisco in 1958 and fans soon grew to love his trademark call of “Tell it Goodbye”. In honor of his birthday, the Giants threw him party and among the friends in attendance were Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Ed Bressoud, Dave Flemming, Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper. He also threw the ceremonial first pitch before the game to catcher Sergio Romo. On behalf of the Giants, Happy Birthday Lon!
Today the Giants Community Fund held a ceremony to dedicate the newly renovated Jeremy Affeldt Junior Giants Field to the city of Modesto.

It was a busy day here at AT&T Park. Earlier today the Dugout Store at 2nd and King had it’s grand opening, a couple thousand kids participated in the Pony League Parade and Q&A with the Giants, and the Jr. Giants Commissioner’s received awards during the Commissioner’s Meeting – oh yeah, there was also a baseball game.
After the Parade down Market Street the party continued at City Hall. Jon Miller and Dave Flemming dancing “Gangnam Style” and Tony Bennett singing were just a few of the highlights from confetti-filled fun. The winners of each week’s tournament will be published in the 2013 Giants Yearbook.
