A cast of Giants gather to honor Willie McCovey

A day after they launched a brand new modern baseball era, the San Francisco Giants took a step back in time to honor the most beloved Giant ever.
A celebration of the life of Willie McCovey was held at AT&T Park and the living, breathing history of the franchise was on hand to witness the tribute. A few hundred fans also came to the ballpark on Thursday to honor the legend.
It is too bad that new president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi, introduced a day earlier, had already flown back to the end of the general manager meetings in Carlsbad. Because on Thursday he could have personally witnessed the essence of his new organization, which is the cherishing and honoring of the past.
