Giants' World Series trophy tour kicks off
The San Francisco Giants' World Series trophy tour started Tuesday in Sacramento and features the team's trophies from both 2010 and 2012.
The three-month tour is meant to allow Giants fans from communities throughout Northern California to share in the glory after the team won the World Series by sweeping the Detroit Tigers in October.
After today's 2:30 p.m. event at Sacramento City Hall, the trophies -- crafted by Tiffany & Co. -- will travel to locations farther north in the coming days, including Chico, Redding and Mt. Shasta.
The tour is coming to the Bay Area next week, with stops in Richmond on Jan. 14 and Vallejo on Jan. 16.
The trophies will then travel across the country to pay homage to the team's roots in New York City at a Jan. 19 event before returning to California later this month.
More stops are planned in February and March, including at the Giants' spring training site in Scottsdale, Ariz., and at the World Baseball Classic at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
The Junior Giants youth baseball program is one of the partners in the tour, and while the two-hour viewings are free to the public, a $2 donation to the Junior Giants is suggested, according to team officials.
A full list of tour dates and locations can be found on the team's website at www.sfgiants.com/trophy.
