SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Following the San Francisco Giants’ 2-0 victory Saturday night against the Detroit Tigers in the third game of the World Series, San Francisco city officials plan to broadcast Game Four live in Civic Center Plaza on Sunday.
A jumbotron screen will broadcast the game, which could potentially clinch the series for the Giants, in front of City Hall, Mayor Ed Lee announced Saturday.
“The San Francisco Giants’ outstanding performance in the World Series has electrified and unified the entire city,” Lee said. “The game that could clinch the series may be in Detroit, but we’re creating an opportunity right in front of City Hall for families to gather and cheer the Giants to another World Championship.”
Lee said he was also encouraging fans to frequent local businesses during the game, and urging local businesses to don Giants colors of orange and black. Giants flags will fly over city Hall, and City Hall and other city buildings and landmarks will be lit up in Giants Orange until the end of the World Series.
Sunday’s game will start at 5 p.m. local time. The Civic Center event will be alcohol free.
