Giants Raising Their 2014 World Series Banner at Home Opener

The San Francisco Giants are raising their 2014 World Series banner at their home opener today at AT&T Park.

Details about the pre-game ceremony were not immediately being released by the team, but fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 12:45 p.m. before the 1:35 p.m. game against the Colorado Rockies.

Today’s festivities will also honor longtime broadcaster Lon Simmons, who died earlier this month at the age of 91, team officials said.

The Giants won their third World Series in five years when they defeated the Kansas City Royals in seven games last fall, led by MVP pitcher Madison Bumgarner. The team also won the title in 2010 and 2012.
