Are you a die-hard Giants fan?
If so, you're going to want to mark your calendar, and warn your boss you'll be taking an extra-long lunch break — the San Francisco Giants' World Champions Trophy Tour will be making stops in the area soon.
On Saturday, March 2, the tour hits Livermore at the Robert Livermore Community Center, located at 4444 East Ave., from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The tour will also make its rounds to San Jose on March 4 at The Health Trust Family Resource Center, located at 46 Race St., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The tour hits Santa Cruz and Stockton the following days before returning to San Jose on March 7 at the San Jose Municipal Stadium from 4 to 6 p.m.
On March 12, the tour lands at Hayward City Hall, located at 777 B St. in Hayward, from 4 to 6 p.m.
At each viewing event, fans will have the chance to have their photo taken with the 2010 and 2012 World Series trophies—created by Tiffany & Co.—and support their local Junior Giants Baseball League by optionally making a suggested $2 donation to the program.
There are, however, some guidelines for visitors to adhere to. From the Giants’ Trophy Tour webpage:
Personal Photo Policy
There have been a large number of fans attending each of the trophy viewings. The Giants intend to accommodate as many fans as possible during the viewing time period. Fans can take photos of the trophies with their personal cameras up to a designated area while waiting in line. Once fans have reached that designated area, only the professional photographers will be allowed to take a posed photo of you or your group.
Fans are advised to arrive early as the line will be cut off, if needed, to allow the trophies to leave at the designated end time. A Giants representative will assess and determine a cutoff point in line. A fan arriving during the designated viewing time is not automatically guaranteed a photo with the trophies. Fans are accommodated on a first-come, first-served basis.
