Public Press wins an Excellence in Journalism award for ‘Public Schools, Private Money,’ in the winter 2014 edition
Thousands of San Francisco Giants fans stormed Market Street Wednesday to celebrate the team's first World Series championship since moving from New York.
The crowd, estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands by SF Gate, had to overcome packed public transit systems to reach downtown. Muni light rail vehicles, BART trains and CalTrain were all swamped with orange-and-black clad fans.
Players were on motorized cable cars as they waved to fans to thank them for their support throughout the season.
The parade ended at City Hall where fans listened to speeches by manger Bruce Bochy, players and even Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Mayor Gavin Newsom handed the keys to the city to the San Francisco Giants.
Downtown streets were teeming with excited fans after the ceremonies ended at the Civic Center.
