Everybody loves a parade. This was a parade of famous SF Giants retired players. They rode in classic, antique, and a motorized cable cars. So who were the players in this parade?
Well there was Willie Mays, Vida Blue, Mike Sadek, Ed Halicki, John – The Count – Montefusco, and others. These are the names I photographed on the scoreboard.
The Grateful Dead sang the national anthem before the game began. I captured their name posted on the scoreboard.
This 1993 Home Opener game was against the Florida Marlins where the SF Giants won 4-3.
I took these photographs early before the game started. It’s too bad more fans did not come earlier to see the festivities. I am so glad I was able to capture this memorable time watching these great SF Giants players celebrate this first home game of the season.
I went thru my photographs to group together these opening day photos from 1993 upon a request of someone who was actually in this opening day parade.
It would be great to hear other fan’s memories about this event and game. I would appreciate to hear from others who attended this game to share their memories. I so glad I have these photos to remind me of this exciting parade and opening day. I know if I did not have these photographs I would have forgotten many of these details.
Keep preserving your life memories with photographs.
By the way, I will be posting my black and white photographs from this opening day in another blog post.
