San Franciscans celebrate Series triumph

 

Ecstatic baseball fans packed the streets of San Francisco on Wednesday for a confetti-drenched parade and rally honoring the World Series champion Giants – a Halloween treat made even sweeter as a repeat performance from 2010. Tens of thousands of people decked out in the team’s orange and black stood 30 deep behind barriers, climbed trees, camped out overnight and mounted rooftops for a chance to see their favorite players wave from convertibles. Giants Manager Bruce Bochy, who hoisted the World Series trophy from the back of a gold Rolls Royce during most of the procession, credited fans and his players’ “unselfish play” for helping to lift San Francisco to its second World Series victory in three years. – Associated Press
