Giants Commemorate World Series Wih With ‘Champions Walk’ Walkway
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The San Francisco Giants’ long journey to win the World Series will be commemorated by a World Champions Walk, team officials announced Friday.
The walkway will encircle all four plazas of AT&T Park and contain granite markers that will highlight epic moments of the 52-year journey.
“The 2010 World Series title was the culmination of more than five decades of memorable moments, historic games and hundreds of legendary players who have worn the San Francisco Giants uniform,” Giants president Larry Baer said in a statement.
“It is only fitting that in honor of this historic achievement, we commemorate these lifelong memories with a permanent display at AT&T Park,” he said.
The walk will also include brick pavers that fans can purchase to mark their own memories of the team’s history. The brick pavers will be sold for $225 to $475, depending on location, team officials said.
A portion of the proceeds for the pavers will go to the Giants Community Fund, which includes the Junior Giants program and other community initiatives.
