Giants World Series Ring Ceremony -- April 10, 2011

Before yesterday's game, the Giants had a World Series ring ceremony. Mike Murphy got the first one, then other clubhouse men and the coaches. Each player received a ring, then the Hall of Famers Willie Mays, Willie MCovey, Gaylord Perry and Orlando Cepeda. Juan Marichal and Monte Irvin will get theirs later. The broadcasters received rings during the game.

The broadcasters mentioned that the president of the Hall of Fame had brought items given by the Giants for each of their previous World Series wins. He had a 1905 pin that belonged to Turkey Mike Donlin, a 1911 watch fob, and a 1921 medal. The 1922 ring, seen above, was the first given to World Series Champions. There were also rings from 1933 and 1954.

The Giants played a stressful game and finally won on a two-run hit with two outs in the ninth.
