Congrats to “Your World Champion San Francisco Giants” for ending a losing streak with a sharp 4-1 victory after a 1st class, beautiful ring ceremony.  Was good to see Tim Flan return to do the National Anthem, and the Giants organization hand out the hardware.  2010, 2012 and 2014.  We had SF Giants VP Russ Stanley as a guest on our last show “pinch hitting” for Larry Baer.  He had his first two WS rings, and the 2007 All-Star game ring.  He also brought Giants stuff to give away for the Lefty O’Doul’s Toy Drive  and gloves for the Foundation.  In support of that, we did a drawing for a pair of tickets in the Giants’ field box. The winner, Gail, will be there to enjoy the Giants vs the Dodgers Tuesday, April 21st.  News on our next show To Be Announced soon.  In the meantime, THANK YOU to Larry, Russ and everyone on the team.  It was a very Merry Holiday Show.  Watch the fun segment.  Click Play
