Since 1970 fans have been able to vote their favorite position players and last year Giants fans accepted the challenge and as The Sporting News put it, “MLB All-Star Game 20102: Giants fans know best; their guys lead NL rout”. Voting has started to for the 2013 game so let’s keep the tradition going!

Players and Giants Alumni alike had a great time along the 1.7 mile Parade Route to the Civic Center.
The Giants have returned to AT&T Park and Game 6 is underway. To kick things off today, the Naval Operation Support Center of San Jose presented the colors while The Kingston Trio sang the National Anthem and a fly over was performed by the VFA 25 First of the Fleet from Lemoore Naval Airforce Station. 1987 NLCS MVP Jeffery Leonard threw the first pitch and Metallica’s James Hetfield said “Play Ball.”
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. Everything from 1987 to 1999 is on the banners for today.
