Time for more home decorating Tuesday, when the giveaway to the first 20,000 fans will be the second in the “Gamer” poster series, this one featuring Aaron Rowand.
Special note for Thursday: After the 12:45 game vs. the Astros, the annual San Francisco Unified School District’s AAA High School Championship Game will be held at AT&T Park, pitting defending champion Lowell High School against George Washington High. Admission is free, and fans already at the Giants game are encouraged to stay to watch and cheer for these young athletes getting to play in a Major League ballpark.
Boy, Saturday was quite an exciting day at AT&T Park, starting with the Junior Giants Glove Drive (photos to come soon), Aaron Rowand receiving his 2007 Gold Glove Award, Tim Lincecum’s dazzling performance and the season debut of Omar Vizquel.
Sunday will also be a great day at the yard as the Giants and Major League Baseball mark Mother’s Day with efforts to help fight breast cancer.
As part of Genentech Strike Out Cancer Day, the first 20,000 fans will receive special pink Giants caps, and as part of MLB’s “Going to Bat Against Breast Cancer” program in association with Susan G. Komen for the Cure, players will wear pink wristbands, titanium necklaces and ribbons, pink logos will appear on bases and home plate, pink lineup cards will be in the dugout and players will use pink bats that will later be autographed and auctioned, along with the special home plates, on MLB.com to raise funds for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
