It’s been a great Sunday! Members of the 2002 team turned out to be honored during a pre-game ceremony.
In honor of the 2002 Team Reunion coming up on July 1 we wanted to look back at some of the great moments during the 2002 season. In August the SPCA brought some of their cats and dogs to the ballpark to do a photo shoot for the 2003 Giants/SF SPCA People and Pets Calendar. Everyone took part in a crazy day of shooting that went from 9:45 to 5:45 and consisted of:
- 28 pets running around the ballpark
- 31 great photos which were used in the calendar
- 40 players/coaches/Giants & SF SPCA employees getting the pets ready
- More dog and cat kisses than we could count
