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. The 1997 team, the final game at Candlestick and the first few years at PacBell/AT&T Park are all represented in these two panels.
It’s been a great Sunday! Members of the 2002 team turned out to be honored during a pre-game ceremony.

Fans were excited on September 28th when Barry Bonds hit the 46th ball into McCovey Cove, but everyone erupted when Robb Nen got his 43rd save of the season that gave the Giants the NL Wild Card Championship. But that was just the beginning. A little over a week later Tim Worrell struck out 3 batters in his 2 innings and Nen nailed down a 3-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves to win the NLCS.
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.

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
