Was the team there? This is the silliest thing I've ever heard! What did the trophy actually do? Are we sure this is the real thing? The olympic torch came through Chico -then I found out there were hundreds of them to be given out to the big wigs. What a joke.

It was such a fun event and lots of Giant spirit! Too bad the trophy couldn't be displayed during the late afternoon when kids were out of school. I actually got my son out early and so we both enjoyed the crowd and the chance to take pictures with the World Series Trophy! Thanks for touring in Chico!!

There's now an iPhone app that let's you pose with the World Series trophy. It's called "Humm Baby," and it was created by a couple guys who were frustrated that the trophy tour wasn't coming to their city.
