Tournament Time!

Game 1 of the 2012 World Series brought San Francisco Playoff Fever to a new level.  Considering it was the second time in World Series history that 3 Cy Young Award winners pitched in the same game and Pablo Sandoval tied the WS record with 3 home runs in the game San Franciscans had a reason to celebrate.

The winners of each week’s tournament will be published in the 2013 Giants Yearbook.

View Level Timeline – Part 3

In 2008, to celebrate our 50th anniversary in San Francisco  we installed a timeline on the View Level at the ballpark which highlighted some of our great players and amazing moments.  We know that all of our fans are not able to come to a game at the park, or those who do may not be old enough to remember some of our alumni.  For this road trip we decided to showcase the timeline and give everyone a bit more information about the moments.  Our SF Hall of Famers leading up to the Roger Craig era is our focus today.
