SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — Bruce Bochy pulled a prank on a few of his players late in spring training, bringing them into his Scottsdale Stadium office and showing them an inexpensive ring from the Dominican Summer League. He insisted it was a preview of their World Series jewelry to come.

Ha! Pat Burrell, one guy on the Giants who already owned a World Series ring, bit hard at the joke.

San Francisco’s players, front office members and other staff received their real 2010 championship bling by Tiffany & Co. in a pregame ceremony Saturday night before hosting the St. Louis Cardinals — and oh what an upgrade, coming from those signature blue Tiffany boxes.

They were a surprise to most everybody. Managing partner Bill Neukom asked Bochy and general manager Brian Sabean for their input, but that was about it. For a second straight day the club celebrated the city’s first championship since moving West in 1958.
