The Commissioner’s Trophy was scheduled to arrive at City Hall at 11 a.m., and Mayor Gavin Newsom planned to hold a news conference with Giants officials shortly afterward.

The trophy will then be available for public viewing in the South Light Court at City Hall from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., according to the mayor’s office.

While the trophy sits in City Hall, Newsom will be traveling down to the Bayview District to coach a game between two teams of the Junior Giants, a youth baseball program of the San Francisco Giants Community Fund.

Robert Cluck, the mayor of Arlington, Texas, will be coaching the other team as part of a payoff of a bet between the two cities over the World Series.

Cluck will have to don a Giants jersey during the event. He also had to send some Texas specialty food from Arlington to Newsom’s office earlier this month as part of the bet terms.
